A Landlord has a legal responsibility in UK Law to ensure the electrical systems in a dwelling are confirmed as being safe. The only realistic way to achieve this is to obtain an electrical certificate for the fixed wiring system and to PAT test any appliances.
Legislation* now in force requires that a Landlord or managing agent shall ensure that electrical equipment and the electrical wiring system shall be in a satisfactory (ie.safe) condition.
It is now accepted in the letting industry that the only effective way to ensure electrical safety, and to avoid the risk of being accused of neglecting your ‘duty of care’, or even of manslaughter is to arrange an inspection and a satisfactory NAPIT certificated condition report.
Elite Electrical have recognised all of this and have put together a unique service where by we not only survey wiring and test appliances but can also upgrade any of electrical installation to bring it up to british standards.
According to Government figures over 2,000 electric shock accidents and 9,300 electrical fires in homes every year.
