Landlord electrical safety certificates

As a landlord, you have a legal obligation to ensure that your rental property is safe for your tenants to live in. One of the key safety requirements is obtaining an Electrical Safety Certificate, also known as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). At Orion TS, we provide comprehensive and affordable Electrical Safety Certificates to ensure that your property meets all safety regulations.

What is an Electrical Safety Certificate?

An Electrical Safety Certificate is a document that confirms the safety of the electrical installation in your rental property. It is also known as an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR). The certificate is issued by a qualified electrician after conducting a thorough inspection of the electrical installation in your property.

Why do I need an Electrical Safety Certificate?

As a landlord, it is your legal responsibility to ensure that your rental property is safe for your tenants to live in. This includes ensuring that the electrical installation is safe and meets all safety regulations. An Electrical Safety Certificate provides you with the necessary documentation to prove that your property is safe and meets all safety standards.

In addition, an Electrical Safety Certificate can help to identify any potential safety hazards in your property. The inspection process involves a thorough examination of the electrical installation, including all wiring, sockets, switches, and appliances. This can help to identify any issues or potential hazards that need to be addressed to ensure the safety of your tenants.

How often do I need to obtain an Electrical Safety Certificate?

In England and Wales, landlords are required to obtain an Electrical Safety Certificate every 5 years. However, it is recommended that landlords obtain an Electrical Safety Certificate every time there is a change of tenant.

Regulations in Wales

 

In Wales, the regulations for obtaining an Electrical Safety Certificate differ slightly from those in England. Landlords in Wales are required to obtain an Electrical Safety Certificate for all new tenancies from 1 July 2020, and for all existing tenancies from 1 April 2021. The certificate must be renewed every 5 years, or more frequently if recommended by the electrician.
