    EICRs and LANDLORDS

    Rather than add to 'Thoughts on recommendation' I thought it better to begin a new one. I am a landlord in London. I think it should be mandatory for an in-date EICR whenever a new tenant takes up a lease and of course after electrical works. I present to my tenants both the EICR and Gas...
