    Electric certificate shortened due to advisories landlord


    If my electrician can’t get the works booked and completed by the time the domestic certificate runs out mid July as shortened due to two advisories is the property insurance invalid or is it that is is okay as long as works booked and ongoing . My certificate is one for a landlord tenancy that I thought was valid for 5 years until 2022

    "Hi Anna,

    I think that under current guidance, as long as the works are booked in with a reasonable time frame, you should be ok but it also depends on the failure points. If they are C2 points, please don't risk it being too long to rectify!

    "Your question should be to the insurance company.
    Electrically, to answer this, I would require the code given for each advisory.
    Code 1 ; There won't be a code 1, the electrician will of done that on site.
    Code 2 ; asap, unsatisfactory until remedial work carried out. This is where the insurance company will be interested.
    Code 3 ; usually minor issues, generally not a fail.
    Fi ; problems that need further information may hide dangerous problems resulting in unsatisfactory result. Again, insurance company would be interested."

    "Normally you would have twenty eight days to complete the work, unless immediately danger is present but due to the way things are with the world there is a bit of give as long as the work is booked before and it's within a reasonable time"
