All electrical installations get damaged with time and ought to be inspected and tested every 3-5 years for a smooth service. These regular safety checks are usually called electrical certificates or domestic electrical installation condition report as per the UK Government that meet the electrical safety standards. There are three sets of electrical certificates with independent adaptations released for landlords, tenants, and local authorities in England.
If your property is newly built or if the building has been completely rewired, you ought to have an Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC). If the local housing authority requests for an EIC, you can get a copy of the same from your landlords if you are a tenant. As long as EIC meets the regulations, the landlord will not be required to provide another report for next 5 years after the it has been issued or carry out further electrical inspection unless necessary.
