An electrical safety check must be commissioned prior to the commencement of a tenancy, and must be carried out by a competent person (a Part P qualified electrician in kitchens and bathrooms) to ensure that the electricity supplies, and all appliances, are legal. This includes supplying instruction books where needed for safe use.
IMPORTANT: Failure to comply with the Electrical Regulations may constitute a criminal offence under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 that carries a maximum penalty on summary conviction of a £5000 fine and/or six months imprisonment. This Legislation means that Landlords have a legal obligation and a duty of care to tenants to ensure that the electrical installation and the electrical equipment supplied is safe.
Do I require Landlord's Electrical Safety Certificate?
It is important that as a Landlord you ensure that all Electrical Appliances and Fittings are safe - in the property you rent out.
For peace of mind it is important to make sure that you do have a Landlord's Electrical Safety Certificate, as you could be held liable should an accident occur.
