Electrical Safety

New regulations have changed the way landlords approach electrical safety;

These new Regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested by a person who is qualified and competent, at least every 5 years. Landlords have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report to their tenants, and to their local authority if requested.

This means that all landlords now have to do what good landlords already do: make sure the electrical installations in their rented properties are safe.

The Regulations came into force on 1 June 2020 and form part of the Department’s wider work to improve safety in all residential premises and particularly in the private rented sector.

Previously, landlords only had to provide safe working electrics and it was down to them how it was achieved.  We are able to provide electrical safety certificates for £150 including VAT.

Its important you have trust in who you choose because just like a free MOT on your car, is it really free when the repair bill automatically arrives.  Call us on 01909 470007 for any guidance you require and ask for Simon.
