Updated guidance for landlords, tenants and local authorities.
Guidance has been updated to reflect that the regulations have come into force for all tenancies as of 1 April 2021.
We’re grateful to our stakeholders for engaging with the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 and for their help preparing the guidance to these important regulations.
We endeavour to make our guidance as useful and as clear as possible. Unfortunately, this was not the case with the recent update so we have reverted these changes and will carefully review the guidance. As before, we’ll work closely with our stakeholders as we ensure this guidance is up to date and useable.
Amended section 3 of the guide for landlords; and section 4 of the guide for tenants.
