Landlord electrical testing
As a landlord, you have a duty of care to ensure your tenants’ safety. For example, The Landlords and Tenants Act 1985 requires that electrical installations in rented properties are safe when a tenancy begins, and are maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy. Plus, electrical appliances provided by landlords must also be safe at the tenancy commencement. If a residential tenant suffers injury or death, or has personal belongings damaged as a result of an electrical system defect in the premises, a landlord is potentially liable under the Defective Premises Act.
If you are a landlord, you should therefore adopt a responsible attitude to the testing of your wiring and electrical appliances. This preventative approach is much cheaper in the long run, ensures your tenants remain safe, and protects your reputation and livelihood.
