1. Was the electrical installation inspected and tested no more than 5 years ago or where the most recent inspection and test report requires inspection and testing to be at intervals of less than 5 years, within the interval specified in that report?
  2. Was the electrical installation inspected and tested against the 18th edition wiring regulations (as amended 2018)?

If the answer to both questions is yes, you do not need to have the installation inspected and tested yet. If the answer to either question is no, you will need to have the electrical installation inspected and tested before any tenancy starts on or after 1st July 2020 and for existing tenancies before 1st April 2021.
