Letting agents and landlords electrical inspection and safety check
Legislation regarding the responsibilities of landlords can seem very confusing. However, the Electrical Equipment (safety) Regulations 1994 clearly states that electrical equipment (including the mains wiring) must be ‘safe’ within rented properties.
Whilst there’s no legal requirements to make sure electrical equipment / appliances are fully certificated (unlike the Gas Safety Regulations) many insurance companies insist on periodic rented property inspections and tests to ensure that the wiring system is safe. This is because all electrical systems suffer damage over time due to deterioration and/or alteration.
You may also face legal action if an accident occurs and a tenant is injured due to an electrical fault. The best defence against such legal action is to show that you’ve been diligent in your legal duty of care through regular testing of the electrical systems in the property and that these tests were carried out by a qualified electrician.
Therefore, rental property electrical inspection and testing should be considered essential to ensure that rental properties remain safe.
A Landlords Electrical Safety Report and Certificate from RHIAES provides a cost effective solution, providing peace of mind for all concerned and also demonstrates that the letting agent and landlord had shown due-diligence and offered a professional service. We also provide a wiring fault finding and repair service to letting agents and landlords as well as carrying out electrical improvement/remedial work in line with the 17th edition of the wiring regulations and Part P. You may face legal action if an accident occurs and a tenant is injured due to an electrical fault. The best defence against such legal action is to show that you've been diligent in your legal duty of care through regular testing of the electrical systems in the property and that these tests were carried out by a qualified electrician.
