On behalf of numerous social housing and private landlords, CH Electrical Services have completed many ’Electrical Installation Condition Reports’, which require the ‘Inspection and Testing’ of electrical wiring in a dwelling or commercial space!
Under government legislation, it’s the landlord’s responsibility to ensure that the electrics in rented accommodation are safe and fit for purpose.
It is recommended that your electrics are tested and inspected every 5 to
10 years, to ensure compliance with BS 7671 and that they are safe for continued use!
Electrical safety is a serious business and statistically, rented properties are more at risk than owner/occupier homes, as they tend to get more wear and tear.
It is crucial that landlords regularly identify and monitor the condition of electrics in their rented property. If a tenant carries out their own electrical work without notifying you, they may have made the electrics unsafe and non-compliant with current electrical regulations, including Part P of the Building Regulations.
