Landlord Safety Certificate Cardiff

Landlord Safety Certificate Cardiff. Where as it is a legal requirement for a landlord to have a gas safety certificate issued and a copy supplied to the tenant(s) of the property, this is not the same when it comes to electrical systems and appliances, there is no legal requirement for the landlord to annually check the systems and appliances and issue a certificate.

There is a legal requirement for landlords to provide a safe property, meaning that it is the Landlord’s duty to make sure that all of the electrical systems (e.g. sockets and light fittings etc.), and all the appliances in the property (kettles, cookers etc.) are safe.

This must be true from the moment the tenants move in and throughout their whole tenancy, meaning that the accommodation must be free of risk to tenants and residents.  Should there be an accident in the property due to a faulty electrical system or appliance, then the landlord would find himself or herself liable.

There are about 30 deaths and 4,000 accidents yearly in the UK relating to electrics, so it’s in the landlords own interests to be assured it doesn’t happen within their properties, and they should be checked by a competent electrician, who is registered with a national body like the NICEIC, like Vanda Electrical, every 5 to 10 years.  In order for an Electrical Safety Certificate to be issued will require Vanda Electrical to carry out two tasks.

  • Firstly, the electrical safety inspection, which will examine the condition of the electrical wiring throughout the house, and also examine the safety of the electrical installations. Vanda electrical will then issue an Electrical Safety Inspection Report, which will state that the installations are safe.
  • A Portable Appliance Test will then have to be carried out on all the electrical appliances.  This is to make sure that all the electrical appliances (e.g. televisions, microwaves, kettles etc.) in the property are electrically safe.  If you are a landlord and need an Electrical Safety Certificate for your property, then please feel free to contact us, or request a free quote.
