The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020; Landlords in the Private Rented Sector (PRS) must ensure every electrical installation in their residential premises is inspected and tested at intervals of no more than 5 years by a qualified and competent person. These Regulations apply in England to new tenancies from 1st July 2020 and existing tenancies from 1st April 2021.
Where an Electrical Installation Safety Report identifies urgent remedial work (this would be C1 or C2 observation on an EICR) or requires Further Investigation (FI), the private landlord must ensure that this required work is carried out by a qualified and competent person within 28 days or the period specified in the report if less than 28 days, starting with the date of the inspection and testing.
Local authorities may impose a financial penalty of up to £30,000 on landlords who are in breach of their duties.
The best way of ensuring that your appliances are safe is to have a PAT test carried out on them. This is a good way for landlords to ensure that they are meeting their legal obligations to maintain high standards of electrical safety in their rented property.
There is currently no strict legal requirement for PAT testing, however the UK Health and Safety Executive along with insurance companies will expect you to perform PAT testing to ensure that you are compliant with certain regulations including: Health and Safety at Work Act of 1974 and the Electricity at Work Regulations of 1989.
