PAT Testing requirements for Landlords

We often get asked about Pat Testing Requirements from Landlords who are responsible, and do not want to fall foul of their electrical safety obligations under the current law by not having essential electrical safety tests and periodic checks on their premises. In house portable appliance testing is recommended when letting out premises to tenants, be it residential, retail, commercial or public buildings.

 Plug parties are accidents waiting to happen!

Why not call us to discuss a annual safety check. – Be wise. Many Insurance companies now see this as a pro-active move and this could result in cheaper premiums for many on professional certification.

Why expose yourself to significant financial risks and invalidated insurance? We have the resources to help you be compliant and make those simple precautions.

Under The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, The Housing Act 2004, Also The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994, and the Plugs and Sockets etc. (Safety) Regulations   1994, both of  which come under the Consumer Protection Act 1987, there is an obligation to ensure that all electrical equipment is safe.
