English rental EICRs query...

Hi all...

I have heard that mandatory EICRs in England (and Wales (?)) may be coming into force this summer.
A letting agent I do a fair bit of work for posed a question just now that I didn't know the answer for.. They asked if a satisfactory EIC has been issued (say for a board change), then would this supersede the need for an EICR... I guess without knowing the wording of the final legislation it is hard to say. I said that if someone bought a brand spanking new new-build it would seem daft to have to have an EICR too... Especially if the new build owners actually received an EIC!! Many don't seem to!

And yes I do realise that many new builds would possibly benefit from an EICR being carried out due to the state I have seen some in :eek:

Is there anything in BS7671 that states an EIC may in certain circumstances supersede an EICR.... Thoughts welcomed..

And roll on the proliferation of drive by EICR companies...oh the joy...!!
