Does a domestic rental property require and electrical safety certificate?

Rental property can be at an increased risk environment when it comes to electricity due to a number of factors, including landlords’ ignorance about where their legal responsibilities lie and how the mass pieces of government legislation apply and when.

The Electrical Safety Council (ESC) has an aim to reduce the number of injuries and deaths caused by electricity and one of the charity’s major areas of campaigning in 2009 is to help make rental property more safe.

The majority of landlords are probably aware that there is no legal requirement to supply an annual electrical safety certificate, as there is with gas.

However, a landlord is required by law to ensure that:
– the electrical installation is safe when a tenancy begins
– the electrical installation is maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy
– any electrical appliance provided in the rented property is safe and has the CE marking.

The electrical installation refers to all the fixed electrical equipment in a property – cables, sockets, switches, light fittings, fuse box, and wiring.
