Landlord Certificates & Certification
If you are a landlord, you are required by law to make sure that the electrics in your property or properties are safe. Many people die and thousands of people are injured every year through unsafe electrics. If you let property, take note of these statistics –Rented properties are potentially more at risk than owner-occupier homes as they tend to get more wear and tear.
Identifying faulty electrical installations can be difficult. Especially in rented properties as tenants may have carried out electrical work themselves without requesting permission or notifying their landlord. An accident could be waiting to happen,and the electrical installation in one of your houses or flats may not comply with National Safety Standards & Building Regulations.

You are advised to have a property maintenance and appliance testing procedure in place. This should ensure properties are maintained in a safe condition.
If you are a landlord and provide any electrical appliances (cookers, kettles, toasters, washing machines, immersion heaters, etc) as part of the tenancy, the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 requires that you ensure the appliances are safe to use when first supplied. Each time the property is re-let it will be classed as supplying to that tenant for the first time.
