Safety Regulations – Electric
The following information is offered only as a guideline to Landlords and to ensure the safety of your Tenant and your property. The maximum penalty for non-compliance can be a fine of £500 or 6 months imprisonment.
Landlords have a duty to ensure that the fixed wiring electrical installation and any other electrical appliances that remain in a property are safe otherwise run the risk of being prosecuted should any unsafe electrics result in an injury or death. We therefore recommend that prior to any letting a competent qualified electrician who holds I.E.E. or C.I.T.B. qualifications, carry out a 5 year periodic electrical safety inspection to include a Periodic Inspection Report for an Electrical Installation (Requirements for Electrical Installations – BS 7671 IEE Wiring Regulations).
We can organise this inspection to be carried out on your behalf but if you prefer to organise this yourself copies of any certificates will need to be provided to us prior to the Tenant moving in.
"I Don't usually write reviews but I felt compelled to this time, as they were so fantastic.Christine at Cherwell Property, has rented out and looked after my property for over 20 years.. I just recently sold my house through the company, which was within a, two week period. The sale was quick and stress free, thanks to Christine and her team. They are professional, honest and amazingly helpful whenever I needed advise. If you want the best then this is the company to choose. Thanks!"
