Are you a Landlord ?
Are you aware that the Government are considering introducing “Mandatory” Electrical Inspections for Rented Properties ?
You will be required to renew this every 5 years. Currently it is only “Recommended” that you have an inspection every 5 years. You will also be required to carry out a “Visual Inspection” of the electrical system each time you change Tenant!
5-Year Electrical Safety Checks Set for Buy to Let Homes
If you currently do NOT have an Electrical Certificate – maybe you should think about one anyway ? What will you do if there is a fire, or someone is injured due to an electrical fault ? What will you say to your Insurance Company ? “The Law did NOT say I HAD to have one – so it’s not my fault” – Do you think that will work ?
Get your property Inspected for your piece mind and the safety of your Tenants. Call Tony Sparks Electrics. I am registered and Insured to carry out Electrical Inspections on all Properties and issue appropriate Certificates.
