I am having the solar inverter upgraded in my HMO. Does the installer need to provide me with an EICR as a part of this work?

If you are living in a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO), the landlord should have an inspection of the electrical installation carried out every five years. The electrician will issue an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) to confirm that the installation is safe or detail any repairs that are required.

However, you do not need an EICR if you having general electrical work carried out in your home, including installation. The installer should just provide you with any instructions that go with the product.
