Do You Know Your Electrical Responsibilities as A Landlord?

As a Landlord there are lots of responsibilities to take care of. One of the main things being keeping your tenants safe. This can be keeping them safe from intruders with CCTV and intruder alarms, but it also includes being safe in their own home which is where the correct electrical checks are vital…
Whether you have new tenants or tenants that have occupied your property for a while an inspection of electrical equipment must be carried out and the electrics properly maintained whilst they are occupants.

Brand new legislation now requires Landlords to install working smoke and carbon monoxide alarms in all of their properties. Smoke Alarms and Carbon Monoxide Alarms must be either main powered or completely sealed and tamper proof. This became law in October 2015.

At Harvey Electrical Services, we provide a full Landlord package meaning your tenants are in safe hands and you as a Landlord have peace of mind!
If you own houses that have Multiple Occupation, an electrical inspection must be carried out every 5 years. This is to comply with up to date regulations. You must also obtain a certificate to show the checks that have been carried out, we provide these crucial certificates with every check.
Any electrical equipment that you as a Landlord have provided for tenants must be PAT Tested every 12 months, this is to make sure that everything is in correct working order and is safe for use. We can organise a PAT Testing call out around your schedule to make sure you keep up with regulations.

We also offer full electrical assessments which include lighting, plug sockets and even fire alarms to make sure your properties are safe and sound.
