While it is not currently a legal requirement for landlords to carry out yearly electrical tests as it is for gas, it is highly advisable to conduct them at least every two years as it is the landlord who is liable should there be a major electrical issue.
The latest government regulations as set out in the Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) Regulations 2008 and the Housing (Standards for Rented Houses) (Amendment) Regulations 2009 say that 'Installations in the house for electricity and gas supply must be maintained in good repair and safe working order' and that
'All landlords have a legal obligation to ensure that their rented properties comply with these regulations and Local Authorities are responsible for the enforcement of the regulations.'
Stratton Electrical is on hand to check and PAT test all rental properties and will provide an annual term maintenance contract for landlords with multiple properties.
"Paul checked every electrical item in our rental property before tenants moved in and has also been on hand whenever there has been a problem with an electrical item going wrong. He is always highly professional, polite and courteous and we wouldn't hesitate to use him for electrical checks, installations or for issue resolution in either our own home or our rental properties."
