Safety for home owners & Landlords

Electrical Safety for landlords :Landlords are obligated to ensure that all electrical appliances and fittings within the property are safe and in good working order. Failure to comply with the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 and the The Consumer Protection Act 1987 is a criminal offence and may result in:


A fine of £5000 per item not complying.
Your property insurance may be invalidated.
Six months imprisonment.
The tenant may also sue you for civil damages.
Possible manslaughter charges in the event of death.

PAT Testing

While there is no legal obligation on landlords to have professional checks carried out on the electrical appliances there is, however, an obligation to ensure that all electrical equipment is safe under the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 and this covers the Plugs and Sockets etc… also.

(Safety) Regulations 1994 come under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.

If the property is an HMO (Houses in Multiple Occupation) you are required by law to provide yearly PAT (portable appliance testing) certificates for all appliances.
Any second hand equipment MUST have been PAT tested by law. That’s why charity shops no longer accept electrical goods – it would cost them too much to administer!
Technically, any equipment returned from service or repair MUST be PAT tested and carry the requisite sticker.

Don’t be caught out, call upon our electrical inspection and testing services as well as PAT testing and stay on the right side of the law.
