Electrical Safety

So that we can continue to keep you and your home safe, we need to carry out an electrical safety inspection. As your landlord, we have a legal duty to carry out these checks every five years.

Your electrical safety inspection

When your electrical safety inspection is due, we’ll call you to make an appointment at a time that is convenient to you.

If you have an inconvenient appointment that you would like us to rearrange or if you have any questions about electrical servicing contact us.

What happens on the day?

Your home’s power supply will be turned off for a period during the inspection, so you will not be able to use any electrical appliances at this time.

If any fixed wiring appliances such as a shower or an electric fire suite are found to be unsafe, we’ll arrange another appointment on your behalf to make any repairs.

What do I need to do?

You will need to be home during your inspection. It will take between 45 minutes and two hours to complete. If you cannot make this appointment, someone over the age of 18 can attend on your behalf.

If you have a pay-as-you-go meter, make sure you have credit as we will need access to the electrical supply.

Make sure we can easily get to the fuse box, sockets, switches, light fittings, smoke alarms and any other electrical equipment.
