As it stands, unlike gas regulations, there is no law that says you must have a landlord electrical safety certificate. However, Landlords are obligated to ensure that all electrical appliances and fittings within the property are safe and in good working order. Failure to comply with the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 and the The Consumer Protection Act 1987 is a criminal offence and may result in:
- Your property insurance may be invalidated.
- A fine of £5,000 per item not complying.
- Six month’s imprisonment.
- The Tenant may also sue you for civil damages
- Possible manslaughter charges in the even of deaths
These regulations are enforced by the Health & Safety Executive. To avoid legal penalisation, it is advisable for landlords to have periodic checks done by a qualified electrician.
