Information For Landlords

The electrical safety bodies warn landlords who rent out property to make sure their electrical systems are regularly checked to ensure their tenants are protected from dangerous electrics which cause 10 deaths, 750 serious injuries and over 12,500 fires every year .A landlord is responsible for maintaining the electrical installation in their property and for having it inspected and tested at least every 10 years or on change of occupancy. Before a tenant moves into a property or signs a tenancy agreement, a responsible landlord should look at the sockets and plugs and follow the guidelines below to spot for dangers and if there are faults, to get them corrected by a government-authorised electrician.

Tell-tale signs of problems include:

  • Old, badly worn or broken switches and sockets
  • A burning or ‘marzipan’ smell from overheating wiring
  • Frayed, cut or damaged leads
  • Cracked or damaged cases on plugs or appliances
  • Burn marks on plugs, leads or appliances
  • Loose cord grips in plugs or appliances
  • Fuses in plugs that blow repeatedly indicate a problem – Never replace the fuse with one of a higher rating than recommended or some other conductive material as this may lead to overheating and a possible fire

Essential Safety Tips for landlords:

  • Make sure you know how to turn off the electricity supply and that you know where the fuse box is located
  • Don’t use shaver sockets or adapters to run appliances other than electric shavers
  • Never use any mains powered electrical appliance with wet hands
  • Never obstruct ventilation grills or cover an electric heater
  • Only supply appliances for use outdoors if they are protected by a residual current device (RCD)
  • Never run appliance leads or extension leads under carpets or rugs, through doorways or in other vulnerable locations and always fully unwind an extension lead before using it
  • Never place and use an electric heater close to furniture or fittings
