    In the process of doing an EICR for a rental property (probably an HMO).

    Really old CCU that has exposed live parts once the lid is removed and so would need to be super careful testing as there is no other isolation except the 100A tagged fuse.

    Don’t feel comfortable doing any further tests because of the safety nature (am I a wimp).

    But it occurred to me that surely this should definately be a new board upgrade job if it’s in a HMO property?

    Thoughts??

    A new board is a decision for the client and your Report should contain all the facts which will aid this decision.

    I think I spy with my little eye, some cores missing from the Tails, or is it my Cataracs playing up?

    Yes you’re right.

    No isolation other than tagged fuse which I’m sure some may just pull but I’m trying to do things by the book. So incoming expose live terminal too close for confort to where I would be removing neutrals etc..

    Does that sound like a reasonable decision to make?

    The board has no RCD so I would think that alone constitutes a need for upgrade surely?

    There should be shrouds over those incoming terminals.

    Are you there to do remedial work or just an EICR?

    That is not your decision, do the EICR and list any issues in the Report.

    Do the EICR, note everything on the EICR report form, plus as a Bum covering excercise, list all salient dangerous findings, and your recommendations in a covering letter, copies of the Report, recommendations and your covering letter to the Land Lord and the Tennant, if you are a member of a scam wouldn't hurt to bung them a copy as well, it may help.

    Copy to client is all that is required.

    OK I was just thinking how much the OP was / is
    concerned, the more people informed of the issues, the more fuss you can make, but yes you are completely correct, just one copy to the client is the requirement.
