Is it Safe to LET? – A Brief Guide to Landlords Responsibilities

The Landlords and Tenants Act 1985 requires that the electrical installation in a rented property is:

  • Safe when a tenancy begins and
  • Maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy

There are many things that contribute to a ‘safe’ electrical installation, they include:

  • Covers in place to ensure that fingers cannot come in contact with live parts
  • Enough sockets for portable appliances to minimize the use of multi-socket adapters
  • RCD protection provided as additional shock protection
  • Satisfactory earthing arrangements
  • Satisfactory bonding arrangements
  • Enough circuits to avoid danger and minimize inconvenience in event of fault
  • Cables are correctly selected and erected for the intended purpose

The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 states:

If a landlord provides any electrical appliances as part of a tenancy, the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations require him or her to ensure that the appliances are safe when first supplied. Landlord is also required to make sure Portable Appliances such as kettles, fridges and washing machines are also safe for ongoing use.

Safety Measures Required to Meet your Legal Obligations:

  • Periodic Inspection Report, also known as ‘Landlords Electrical Safety Certificate’
  • Portable Appliance Testing, also known as ‘PAT testing’
  • Mains powered FIRE alarms
  • Mains powered Carbon Monoxide Detectors
