do you need an electrical safety inspection?
you are required to ensure your electric appliances and systems are
safe. There is a requirement for Landlords and Letting Agents to take
adequate steps to protect the users of their appliances from both electric
shock and fire hazard. If you don’t have them
inspected how will you know if they are safe? Any defence is
likely to fail under “due diligence” if there was a reasonable step that
could have been taken but was not.
fires in the home occur at a rate of 2,200/year in the UK. It could
happen to one of your properties. While it is highly likely you are
insured, will your insurance cover an un-inspected property? Who will cover
your insurance excess? Who will cover the lost rent while the
property is being returned to habitable condition.
Will it be investigated? Almost certainly, and could you show that
the electrical installation and appliances were safe? How would you

fire. It would also show you had acted positively towards the safety

number of electric shocks in the home is substantial,
however the number of deaths or serious injuries from these shocks is
small. This disproportionately small number is not by accident.
It is by design, due largely to the UK electrical regulations. These
go a long way to minimise the risk of death or serious injury from an
electrical shock or fire. However this is only true if the equipment
and installation are compatible with accepted electrical safety
standards. Are yours?
an inspection would reduce the risk and help ensure any possible problems
were likely to be minimised, whether from injury, damage to property, or
exposure to prosecution.
Why do you need a gas safety inspection?
Landlord or Letting Agent that will be obvious, it a legal
requirement. It is not a misdemeanour - it is a criminal offence not
to have your properties checked annually for gas safety.
from the legal requirement, consider that every year in the UK around 30
people die from faulty gas appliances. Only a small percentage of
these die from explosions, the vast majority die from the invisible killer,
Carbon Monoxide. You can’t see it, you can’t smell it, but only a
very small amount is needed to cause death.
