Further Letter to Local Housing Authority regarding electrical safety works (England)
This Further Letter to Local Housing Authority regarding electrical safety works (England) is for use by a residential Landlord who has recently had an electrical installation inspection and test carried out in premises in England and the report required further investigative or remedial work to be carried out.
The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 (‘the Act’), imposes duties on private landlords of residential properties in England to carry out five-year electrical safety checks. Tenancies granted on or after the 01 July 2020 will be caught by the Act. Existing tenancies will be caught by the Act from 01 April 2021.
Most tenancies are caught by the regulations, although a number of tenancies including long leases, tenancies granting a right of occupation for a term of seven or years or more, social or resident landlords, holiday lettings, care homes, and licences for lodgers (where the occupier is sharing accommodation with the landlord) are excluded.
This letter should be printed on the Landlord’s headed paper and sent to the local housing authority with a copy of the written confirmation from the qualified person confirming that further investigative or remedial work has been carried out and the electrical safety standards have now been met. This letter must be sent to the local housing authority within 28 days of completion of the further investigative or remedial work as required by Regulation 3(5)(c) of the Act.
The Local Housing Authority is asked to sign a copy of the Letter and return it to the Landlord to confirm receipt. The Landlord must remember to send the Local Housing Authority two copies of the Letter and a stamped addressed envelope.
