Are electrical testing surveys mandatory?
Periodical electrical testing is essential in order to prevent serious accidents and fires, and they are mandatory.
Under landlord regulations we are required to carry out electrical testing every 5 years. Our tenants are required to provide access under the terms of their tenancy agreements.
We usually contact tenants to start arranging inspections 3 months before the current certification expires. It is important that you make arrangements to allow access to the property as soon as you can once you receive our request to do so.
If you find it difficult to provide access to contractors, we will try to accommodate your needs as much as we can: please contact us as soon as you receive the letter, on the telephone numbers listed on the letter itself (please bear in mind that testing is carried out normally 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday)
