Letting a property

Safe to let?
Our "Landlords Electrical Safety Report" provides peace of mind for responsible Landlords and Letting Agents who will be aware that they have a duty of care to provide a safe environment for their tenants.

The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 requires landlords to ensure the electrical installation is safe when the tenancy begins, and that it is maintained in a safe condition throughout that tenancy. The IET states that: Periodic Inspection and Testing is necessary because all electrical installations deteriorate due to a number of factors such as damage, wear, tear, corrosion, excessive electrical loading, ageing and environmental influences. Consequently legislation requires that electrical installations are maintained in a safe condition and therefore must be periodically inspected and tested.

Over many years Pink Electrical have developed and fine tuned a service to letting agents and landlords which is tailor made for their needs. We assess the wiring at the property against current wiring regulations, however we take into account that that just because it may not meet the latest standards it does not necessarily mean that it is not fit for purpose. The wiring regulations are not retrospective and you are not required to update a system unless it poses a hazard.

Our Landlords Electrical Safety report is carried out by a fully qualified and accredited test engineer and the report will cover an initial visual inspection of the wiring system followed by detailed measured and functional tests of circuits utilising state-of-the-art test equipment. Once engaged we will liaise with all parties involved to arrange access to the property in timely professional manner. Reports will be available within 24 hours following our tests and inspections.

A Landlords Electrical Safety Report and Certificate from Pink Electrical Services provides a low cost solution, providing peace of mind for all concerned and also demonstrates that the letting agent and landlord had shown due-diligence and offered a professional service. Pink Electrical also provide a wiring fault finding and repair service to Letting Agents and Landlords and carry out electrical improvement/remedial work in line with the 17th edition of the wiring regulations and Part P
