Being a landlord comes with all sorts of responsibilities to ensure tenants are kept safe and all electrical equipment and systems are fit for purpose. To comply with insurance conditions, avoid fines and personal injury claims or even a prison sentence, as a landlord you have to adhere to various electrical safety obligations. Whilst there is no law to say landlords must conduct electrical safety checks on a yearly basis, there are regulations that apply, such as the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994, The Landlord & Tenant Act 1985 and the Housing Act 2004.
The Health & Safety Executive (HSE) enforces these regulations and recommends landlords have periodic inspections carried out by a qualified electrician. S&G Electircal has over 10 years’ experience in landlord electrical testing and we work to 18th Edition BS7671, including the new amendments of January 2019.
Being cheaper than competitors isn’t a strategy, instead, it’s giving customers an exceptional service at an affordable price
