Landlords are required by Law to ensure:
- That the electrical installation in a rented property is safe and always maintained in a safe condition.
- That a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) property has a periodic inspection carried out every five years. If you do not own a HMO property then this is not a legal requirement but it is recommended that a periodic inspection and test is carried out on your rental properties at least every five years by a registered electrician.
- That any appliance provided is safe and has at least the CE marking (which is the manufacturer’s claim that it meets all the requirements of European Law).
To meet these requirements a landlord will need to regularly carry out basic safety checks to ensure that the electrical installation and appliances are safe and working.
