April 1st 2021 is the deadline for all existing tenancies to comply with the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020.

By this date, landlords must have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested by a person who is qualified and competent. Landlords must obtain a report from the person conducting the inspection and supply a copy of this report to the existing tenant within 28 days of the inspection or before any new tenancy.

We advise you not to wait till the last minute, as demand for these inspections and tests is likely to increase nearer the deadline.
