Hiring a tradesman for a electrical safety check

A landlord will need to periodically make sure that the electrical installations and appliances in their property are completely safe. It is important that a thorough job be done, which is why hiring an expert is key. Plentific can help you find the best tradesman for the job with a service that can generate a bespoke contact list of the best tradesmen in your local area that offer the skills you need. To help you compare your options you will also get quick access to customer ratings and reviews, so that when you make your hire you can do so with confidence.

What do you need to know about electrical safety checks?

It is the legal obligation of a landlord to ensure that all electrical installations and appliances in their property are safe and well maintained. Any appliances provided will at least need to have a CE marking. If a property is a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) it must have a periodic electrical safety check every five years. Though this is not obligatory for non-HMOs, it is still advised to perform a check as often as this.Not doing so on a regular basis can leave your tenants in danger, to say nothing of the cost of replacing an appliance if you miss your window to have it repaired.

The price of having a electrical safety check done will vary depending on the size of the property and your location in the UK. For an average two bedroom house you may be expected to pay between £80 and £120. Once the check has been done you will be given a report, summarising the inspection and highlighting any action that needs to be taken. You can also get advice on the proper maintenance of certain appliances; some, like electric fires or cookers, may require more regular inspections than the rest of the property.

It is important that the tradesman you choose to perform the landlord electrical safety check is qualified as an electrician, with adequate experience doing checks on similar properties. A professional should be able to provide evidence of this, in addition to feedback from previous clients. A good sign to look out for is if a tradesman is part of a national tradesmans’ organisation, as such groups usually enforce high standards and codes of conduct on their members.
