Keeping your tenants and investment safe, and your due diligence in order

Electrical regulations and safety in rented property

We’re aware of the industry regulations facing buy-to-let investors, and the consequent need of a fast and efficient service to undertake periodic inspections and installation work. To be able to demonstrate due diligence, you must ensure the electrical safety of your property. To be truly diligent, you should be certifying the property on every tenant change. With the emphasis on timing to coincide with tenants vacating, we get the job done as quickly as possible, minimising your down time and preserving precious profit margins.

Services we offer Landlords:

  • Support for single and/or multiple units
  • Out of hours emergency electrical services to your tenants, bypassing calls directly to you
  • Landlord maintenance contracts
  • PAT Testing
  • Electrical Installation Reports

Compliance and implications of non-compliance:

If you let property you must ensure that the electrical system and all appliances supplied are safe. Failure to comply with the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 and the Consumer protection Act 1987 is a criminal offence and may result in:

  • A fine of £5000 per item not complying
  • Six month’s imprisonment
  • Possible manslaughter charges in the event of deaths
  • The Tenant may sue you for civil damages
  • Your property insurance may be invalidated

These regulations are enforced by the Health & Safety Executive
