WE DO LANDLORD ELECTRICAL SAFETY CERTIFICATES
Your Duties as a Landlord
As a landlord, it is your legal duty to ensure all electrical equipment in your property is safe and maintained throughout the whole tenancy. This responsibility covers light fixtures and plugs, as well as internal wiring.
An electrical installation includes all fixed electrical equipment that is supplied through your property’s electricity meter. Just like other features of your property, electrical installations deteriorate and face wear and tear, so need to be properly maintained.
Failure to do so can lead to prosecution and also invalidates most landlord insurance policies. For the safety of your tenants and your business, it is important to get regularly electrical safety certification.

PAT Testing for Landlords
Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) is the checking of the safety of portable (as opposed to fixed) electrical appliances in your property. Confusingly, portable appliances include stationary equipment like fridges and washing machines, as well as things like TVs, kettles and space heaters.
How Often Do I Need to Inspect my Portable Electrical Appliances?
As a landlord, your duty is to ensure the safety of the electrical appliance in your property. There is no legal requirement to do a PAT test periodically unless your property is a House in Multiple Occupancy, but doing one is a great way to meet your legal obligations and keep your tenants safe.
Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMO) and PAT Testing
If you are the landlord of an HMO, then the law around electrical safety is different for you. If your property is classified as an HMO then an annual PAT is legally required. It must cover all appliances in the property.
Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) for Landlords
Your EICR should be carried out by a registered electrician. The inspection will check the condition of your property’s wiring, look for wear & tear and see if your property’s electrical installations pose any shock or fire hazards. You will then receive a report from the electrician.
How Often Do I Need to Carry Out a Condition Report?
As a landlord, your duty is to ensure the safety of the electrical infrastructure of your property. There is no legal requirement to get a EICR periodically unless your property is a House in Multiple Occupancy, but doing one is a great way to meet your legal obligations and keep your tenants safe.
Houses in Multiple Occupancy (HMO) and EICR Testing
If you are the landlord of an HMO, then you must carry out an Electrical Installation Condition Report every five years. This will reveal any defective electrical work, identify fire hazards and check if any circuits are overloaded and dangerous.

Whenever a new tenant moves into your commercial or domestic property, it is your responsibility as a landlord to ensure that they are aware of all electrical work that has been completed on the home. It’s very common for tenants to inspect any fixtures and sockets themselves before agreeing to let a property and knowing that you have nothing to hide before they undertake these tests will take a weight off your shoulders.
It is also vital that you ensure that your relationship with tenants is one of mutual understanding. This means that when there are any electrical issues within the home, your tenants will feel comfortable raising them with you without concerns about how it’ll impact them. Ensure that they are aware that they must report any and all electrical faults as soon as possible so that they can be seen to.
Finally, it may be worthwhile discussing with your tenants the importance of electrical safety and letting them know about anything they can do to further protect the home. This can be anything from unplugging products such as hair straighteners once they’ve been used to learning how to fix a fuse issue.
