Is your property electrically safe?
Whilst it is not currently a legal requirement to have an electrical check (EICR) carried out, a landlord, by law is required to ensure that electrical installations in a rental property are in a safe condition at the beginning and throughout the duration of a tenancy.
The only way to ensure this is to get the checks carried out.
We suggest an electrical check is carried out at the start of a new tenancy, with any remedial works completed. An electrical certificate is usually valid for 5 years (3 years if a satisfactory report is produced by the qualified electrician). This check should be renewed as necessary.
We recommended a Portable Appliance Test is completed at the start of each new tenancy and renewed annually.
