"Your electrics, safe in our hands"
As a landlord, the safety of your tenants is your responsibility. You must ensure all electrical requirements are met. These include the electrical installation, electrical appliances, electrical heating and electrical hot water systems. A landlord must ensure the rented property meets legal requirements and should be checked every five years by providing landlord electrical safety certificates. We specialise in HMO compliance certificates and have experience in Edinburgh, Dundee and Fife area.
We provide free advise for landlords for current compliance for smoke alarms and electrical installation condition report EICR. Our advise is free with no obligation.
All electrical certification should be carried out by a registered electrician such as NICEIC. Landlord’s electrical certificates include Periodic Inspection Reports and Portable Appliance Testing (PAT). RB Grant are fully qualified NICEIC electricians and can supply you with a Landlord Safety Certificate.
Regulations advise that you have a full electrical inspection carried out every five years. A periodic inspection investigates the state of the electrical wiring throughout a property and checks the safety of the electrical installation. The periodic inspection is now referred to a Electrical Installation Condition report or EICR
The electrician should issue you with a Domestic Periodic Inspection Report (a Landlord’s Safety Certificate) at the end of the examination which shows the electrical installation is safe.
A registered electrician should carry out PAT testing on all portable electrical appliances within a property once a year. A portable appliance is defined as an appliance that can be plugged into the mains. For example microwaves, TV, heaters and lamps.
The electrician will then provide the landlord with a safety certificate to prove all appliances within the property are electrically safe. We also provide a certificate of inspection of electrical appliances for HMO standards.
