I do not believe so. An estate agent informed my sister-in-law that it was required for a standard let. Perhaps ask them whether they are motivated by commissions? Then threaten to move agent if they pull such a stunt again?
If the 3 occupiers form more than 1 household i.e they are not part of the same family under the Housing Act 2004 it will be a HMO ( their are some exceptions in very specific circumstances) . I am not sure what you mean by the term regulated?
The EICR requirement is specified in The Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation (England) Regulations 2006 Section 6.
The extract of which is below.:-
(3) The manager must—
(a)ensure that every fixed electrical installation is inspected and tested at intervals not exceeding five years by a person qualified to undertake such inspection and testing;
(b)obtain a certificate from the person conducting that test, specifying the results of the test; and
©supply that certificate to the local housing authority within 7 days of receiving a request in writing for it from that authority.
Yes it’s an HMO and yes you require an electrical safety certificate.This is required under regulation 6 of the HMO Management Regulations (https://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/2006/...tents/made) which apply to ALL HMOs regardless of whether or not they need licensing.

I cant believe the levels that landlords lower themselves to to save a few quid. Gas certificates are essential as are EICR. The law states that the electrics must be in a "safe and working order". The only way you can do this is provide an EICR. As a agent and a landlord we insist on these for every let property. We don't do it for commission we do it because its common sense and for the protection of all those concerned. I do also do it on my own house. If you own you own place and don't do it that's your risk however those that rent of us are paying for a service and should not be at risk.
If you cant be professional about what you do go and find something else
