Directly applicable for Landlords and Letting Agents is the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, which requires that the electrical installation in a property is safe when the tenancy begins, and that it is maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy. Where portable electrical equipment is provided as part of the tenancy agreement, there is also an obligation to ensure that it is adequately inspected by a skilled person to ensure that it is safe. Onix Systems Ltd offer periodic electrical safety inspection by one of our team of trained engineers, at the start of a tenancy and at intervals thereafter, electrical safety inspection programme. All electrical work is carried out in compliance with BS7671 and NICEIC (National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contractors) regulations.
If you have anything like the pictures below it may be time to have an Electrical Condition Report before problems arise.
