Hi Is it acceptable to have instructed an electrician to do a 5 year check before 1 April 2021 even if he cannot do before that date?

    That’s not what the rules say and they require the report be completed and a copy given to the tenant.

    However, the penalty is discretionary by the local authority so we’re hopeful that if something comes of it and you explain, they would likely hold off until the appointment date at least.
