IS YOUR HOME SAFE AND LEGAL?

12th Apr 2022

Millions of people across the UK expose themselves to the risks that cause electrical accidents in the home, due to a lack of understanding surrounding electrical tests and safety. New regulations require landlords to have their electrical installations inspected and tested at an interval of at least every 5 years, this coincides with an annual visual inspection. Landlords may have to provide their local authority or tenants with a copy of the electrical safety report if requested.

Here are just some of the reasons to ensure all your electrical safety checks are up to date:

-Electrical installations deteriorate with age therefore can cause harm to anyone within the household if not checked regularly.

-If a fire or electrical fault were to occur, your home insurance may not pay out if you do not have the most up to date safety checks.

-It can assist in selling your home.

-Local authorities can impose a fine of up to £30,000 to landlords who are in breach of their duties.

The frequency of testing required is in accordance with BS7671:2018
