  1. If I were you I'd ask him to point out which paragraph in the Regulations states this requirement.
  2. I'm confused - if as you say your tenants aren't moving out, what do you need to ask an electrician about?
  3. You wouldn't have to anyway, as I said before there is no obligation to repeat testing on change of tenant as far as I can see. There is however an obligation to have a survey carried out every five years.
  4. I don't think you can opt out of a legal obligation regarding regular electrical inspections of your flats without potential consequences, if that's what you are suggesting. Did you read the links provided?
  5. As you are a landlord and have legal obligations to fulfil I suggest that you read up on it for yourself rather than asking a random stranger on a forum.
  6. If that's the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations then they have been in force for a couple of years: https://www.nrla.org.uk/resources/looking-after-your-property/electrical-safety-inspections. As a landlord yourself didn't you already know that? I think you've been misinformed a bit though. Those regs only cover private rentals, so about 4.8 million. I've seen ads around here for people to do the work and issue a certificate for £80, so your mate may have been overcharged. There isn't a requirement to repeat the test on change of tenant as far as I can see, just to give the new tenant a copy of the certificate.
