Landlord electrical safety reports and certificates
Electrical safety in a rental property. If your a landlord and want peace of mind for you and your tenant then you need a landlord electrical safety check for the rental property.
Before you can let the property you should comply with the electrical safety regulations.
The Electrical Appliance Safety Regulations 1994 state that all electrical appliances have to be safe. You as a landlord have a duty of care to make sure that all electrical appliances, and the electrical installation, wires, switches and sockets are safe and sound. There isn’t any legal obligation to provide a safety certificate, However,in the event the unfortunate did occur, you would not be covered?..
By covering your own back and having the installation tested and having the appliances PAT tested will ensure that all appliances that you provided in the property are tested for safety. you will have a safety certificate for the electrical installation and each appliance will have a sticker on it showing it has passed and is safe to use. This is easiest way to prove you have taken your responsibility seriously. also the property must have smoke alarms installed, (Smoke Detectors Act 1991). Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 requires that the electrical installation is safe at the start of the tenancy and maintained in a safe condition throughout.
