It is a legal requirement that an electrical inspection is carried out by a registered electrician every five years for a rental property in England and Scotland (and recommended for Wales and Northern Ireland).

The electrician who conducted the EICR should have been given to you in-person when the checks were carried out.

If you haven't had an EICR conducted on your property we would recommend arranging one as soon as possible. 

You can find an electrician local to you here.
