What happens if I can't find get my electrical inspection booked in time or my tenants are shielding because of the COVID-19 pandemic?

If you can show that you have taken all reasonable steps to comply with the regulations, you are not in breach of your duty. The government are encouraging landlords to respect the caution of vulnerable tenants during this time and approach all situations with sensibility and reason.

You can show you have taken reasonable steps by keeping copies of all communications you have had with your tenants and electricians regarding arranging electrical work - including any replies you have had.
