If you are a landlord by law you are required to ensure:
The safest way to meet these requirements and to obtain documented evidence of the electrical safety inspection is to have an Electrical Installation Condition Report completed for the property before tenants move in. Maintaining this evidence can be achieved by having a visual inspection completed between tenants if there is a change in tenancy before the recommended next inspection on the EICR.

You may need an electrical installation condition report (EICR) for a number of reasons.
You should get a professional electrician who is fully accredited to check its condition at least every five years or the recommended next inspection date.
An electrical installation condition report is a series of test’s to make sure your electrical installation continues to conform to current electrical standards.
It will highlight any deviations from current electrical standards and if there are any safety concerns such as loose connections or damaged cables.
It will clarify that your electrical circuits or equipment are protected by the correct protective devices and are therefore safe to use.
The electrical report will highlight any potential health & safety risks or fire hazards. It will identify any defectives within the installation.
Within an electrical installation it is a requirement to have earth bonding to your gas and water mains supply.
The report will provide a recommended next inspection date which will reflect the urgency on which any remedial works that may be required.
The electrical safety check/report does not include any repairs to the electrical installation.
In the rare occurrence of finding any faults that could potentially lead to serious injury while the inspection is in progress they will be made safe, pending further remedial works.
