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.
