Am I correct in thinking that all rental properties now require an electrical certificate? If this is the case, what is the legal requirement to have electrical work done to contiually bring the electrical installation of a property in to line with the ever changing electrical regulations?
i.e. If a property is tested and passes an electrical test in 2009, is a landlord required to alter the installation to comply with any changes to the regulations that may come in to force after the test.
For instance an RCD fuseboard that was perfectly within the electrical requirements 2years ago has now been superceeded by a new type RCD fuseboard to comply with current regs. Is the landlord required to update electrical equipment every time regs change?
Thank you.
