Landlord Electrical Certificates

Electrical safety in letted homes and apartments

Testing an Electrical SupplyThere are around 30 deaths and 4,000 accidents annually in the UK involving electrics. If you let property in England & Wales you must ensure that electrical equipment and the electrical system are safe. It is the duty of every landlord to make sure that the property that they are renting is fit for the purpose for which it is intended. This includes the fixed electrical wiring.

Landlord Electrical Safety Certificates

Every landlord should have a Landlord Electrical Safety Certificate for each property they own.

You should ensure that tenants are given copies of operating and safety instructions for ALL supplied electrical equipment in the premises and you should carry out regular checks to ensure tenant safety.

How long is the certificate valid for?

Safety Checking an Electrical SupplyTypically the certificates are valid for a maximum of 5 years or at the change of occupancy. However it is up to the tester to specify an amount of time based on the test results, experience and judgement.

If you do not hold a valid certificate you may experience problems getting adequate landlord insurance as some insurance companies will not offer you a policy unless a safety electrical certificate has been issued.

Also, if you do not have a valid certificate then if your tenant is unfortunate enough to have a problem of an electrical nature while you property is being rented, you may be liable. It will be up to you to prove that the electrical installation was fit for service at the time of renting and that the onus of blame lies elsewhere. Your up-to-date electrical safety certificate will ensure that you can do this.
