From April 2021 I will need to get an Electrical Condition Report -as the rules have changed and this is needed for existing tenants. The problem I have is that my tenants are a nightmare for allowing workman into the property.
Previously, the EICR was done (or at least obtained) by the tenant’s brother, but the brother only got it for 18 months (via a “mate”). I don’t really want to pay the tenant’s brother a whole load of money – just to get a certificate for 18 months.
So my options are:
a) End tenancy – as they don’t want another electrician to come in and do the work and then re-let once work has been done and the certificate is issued.
b) See if the Brother can get 5-year certificate
c) Get tenants to confirm in writing that they are happy with the electrics as they are (I should point out the electrics were redone in the 1980s – but a previous electrician that came to do the ECR – said electric were old, the wrong colour wiring – my understanding is this changed in 2004 and needed upgrading) and they will not allow any electrician to come into the property to issue a ECR let alone do the upgrade work.
Can anyone help – can I tell the Council that my tenants will not allow access.
