I am about to do a board change for my friend/neighbour , she is renting her flat out at the end of the month. It's not been touched from the 70's although had bits added , but no new circuits etc. So All wiring and associated parts 45 years old.

I said the Letting agent will likely want to see an EICR form , but was going to do it for her at the end of the job for free as will have to do most of the testing anyway when I change the board.

She was saying today that they didn't need anything at all and wasn't bothered, just to let her know what the appliances energy ratings were.

Now I know it's not a legal requirement to provide an EICR for your tenants if you let your property, but I cannot believe a Estate Agent wound not recommended , some sort of check , to potentially protect the owner ,knowing it's never been checked in 45 years.

I know there is a divide on opinions ,that EICR's should be a legal requirement , as they could generate false work ,put rent up etc, but I really think there should be something in place that makes it mandatory after say 30 years or over old.

Renting a property with rewireable fuses , and the associated lack of common sense and bodging today, is got to be just wrong on so many levels.
