Landlord Electrical Certificates: Installation Reports & Appliance Testing

The number of UK households living in rented property has doubled in the last ten years, with increasing house prices and slow wage growth making it harder for people to get on the housing ladder. Approximately 5 million households are currently living in private rented accommodation, which equates to 21% of the total, with this number expected to rise to 5.8 million in the next five years, according to estate agency Knight Frank.

Many homeowners have also become so-called “accidental landlords” – forced to rent out their existing property to cover mortgage repayments so that they can afford to make their next move. Whether you’re a seasoned landlord or new to property rentals, it’s important to have access to a reliable electrician who can carry out the necessary checks before you purchase a new property or make an existing property available for rental.

The Latest Regulations

Prospective and current landlords need to consider and understand Part P of the Building Regulations for England and Wales – or the Building Standards in Scotland – which is intended to increase the safety of households by improving the design, installation, inspection and testing of electrical installations in homes, whether they are being newly built, extended or altered.

Part P stipulates that landlords must notify or submit plans to a building control body before commencing work including repairs, replacements and maintenance work, extra power or lighting points and other alterations to existing circuits in certain parts of a property, including bathrooms, which pose a risk to homeowners.

As members of the STROMA Approved Contractor, the Domestic Installer and the Electro Technical Assessment Schemes, Elextric is able to self-certify compliance with the Building Regulations whenever we carry out maintenance, repairs or any type of electrical work.
