Landlords have a duty to ensure that their properties’ electrical systems are safe for the tenants to use and don’t pose a potential danger. A simple and cost effective way of doing this is with a Periodic Inspection Report carried out by a qualified electrician.
Most insurance companies now insist on evidence of these inspections being carried out on a rented property before they will honour any damage claims, so it’s in the best interests of landlords to put a regime of testing in place.
MG Electrical can perform these inspections as part of its services for landlords in Edinburgh, as well as carrying out any work needed. Remember, it’s important to employ a qualified electrician so as to comply with Regulation 16 of the Electricity at Work Regulations, which stipulates that anyone who works on an electrical installation must have the training to do so without risk to themselves or anyone else.
