Electrical Testing For Private Rented Properties

Published: 06/06/2020 By Allan Fuller

The UK Government has issued new regulations for all properties that are let in the private sector. From the 1st of July this year must meet  guidance on the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020.

 All properties that we let are inspected by a qualified Electrical Inspector before they are let who will issue a certificate confirming that the system meets safety requirements, or alternatively stipulate what action  is required to meet regulations, Where the report shows that remedial or further investigative work is necessary, the work must be completed within 28 days or any shorter period if specified as necessary in the report.

 For properties already let they must have been inspected and tested, with recommendations carried out before the 1st of April 2021.
