The electrical safety obligations of Landlords

Landlords are leaving themselves open to significant financial risks, from fines and invalidated insurance, because they are not fulfilling their electrical safety obligations.
In addition to this, Landlords are also putting UK private tenants at risk of serious accident or fire. But what are the electrical obligations of Landlords for their rental properties?
 
Your responsibilities as a landlordis to ensure:
·         That the electrical installation in a rented property is safe when tenants move in and maintained in a safe condition throughout its duration.
·         That a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) has a periodic inspection carried out on the property every five years. 
·         That any appliance provided is safe and has at least the CE marking (which is the manufacturer’s claim that it meets all the requirements of European law).
·         To meet these requirements a landlord will need to regularly carry out basic safety checks to ensure that the electrical installation and appliances are safe and working.
It is always best to be proactive rather than reactive especially when you are responsible for the welfare and safety of the tenants in your property. You should always ensure that your property has adequate RCD protection and that you use a registered electrician for any work on your property. By carrying out regular safety checks on the electrical appliances provided as part of the rental agreement is always advisable.
