City Electrical Services provides electrical inspection and testing services for landlords,letting agencies and social housing across Beds,Herts,Bucks and London.  From carrying out landlord electrical safety checks and PAT Testing to installing new fuse boxes / consumer units.

It is important to ensure that all electrical appliances and fittings within the property are safe and in good working order. Unlike gas regulations, there is no law that states you must have a landlord electrical safety certificate. But, should any electrical fittings or appliances within your rental property cause harm to a tenant you could be held liable.

Manage your property well and the risks to you as landlord or agent are minimal, but manage it badly and your risks are high.

You are advised to make visual inspections yourself as landlord or agent in residential properties (record on a safety checklist) and have periodic checks carried out by a qualified electrician.
