ARLA have been in dialogue with the Ministry for Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) since the guidance on the Electrical Regulations was issued late on Thursday afternoon.
In trying to make different parts of the guidance clear and easy to use, the revisions inadvertently brought many more properties into scope.
ARLA have stressed throughout, the importance of allowing sufficient time for letting agents and landlords to have contractors undertake work.
The guidance is being revised and reissued confirming the position as originally stated.
