Electrical Safety Standards for Private Rented Properties
- Because your rented property must be safe for tenants
- Because you have a duty to adhere to safety regulations
- Because failure to comply with regulation will be expensive
New regulations require private landlords to enlist competent and qualified professionals to conduct electrical safety inspections at least one every five years.
In the event of electrical issues being discovered, landlords have 28 days to perform any necessary work unless otherwise specified.
Being non-compliant with the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector Regulations 2020 can result in a fine of up to £30,000 - read more in our article.
