Landlords Electrical Safety Certificate
Focus 360 Energy offer sound testing for Residential & Commercial Properties throughout the UK.
What is a Landlords Electrical Safety Certificate?
It is a legal duty for landlords to ensure that their properties are safe for human habitation as set in the Homes (Fitness for Human Habitation) Act 2018. This legislation set out how privately rented accommodation could be kept safe to occupy for the duration of the tenancy. Electrical faults cause up to 10% of house fires in the UK according to data issued by the Home Office. Any electrical installation that has been neglected for a length of time can increase the risk of a fire breaking out.
All electrical installations can degrade over time. Landlords therefore have a duty to ensure that all electrical equipment and wiring in a rental property is safe and maintained throughout the whole tenancy.
The Landlords Electrical Safety Certificate provides an in-depth inspection of the internal wiring including consumer units, fuse boards, boilers, panel and storage heaters, hard-wired smoke detectors and fire detectors.
It also checks all fixed electrical equipment that is supplied via the properties electrical meter. If any defects are found the report suggests the necessary changes needed to rectify problems.
Recommended for domestic properties every 10 years, Focus 360 Energy can provide EICRs for both Homeowners and Landlords to ensure there are no defects or deterioration.
EICRs for Business, Commercial and Industrial Premises must be done on a regular basis, between every 1-5 years according to the use of the premises to ensure all the electrics comply with the Health and Safety and Work Act.
