PAT Testing (Landlords)

If you are a landlord who rents accommodation to tenants then you are required by law to ensure that the electrical appliances that you supply within these residences are safe to operate. This national legislation pertains to any type of rented accommodation including; houses, flats, apartments, holiday homes, caravans and boats amongst other residences.

Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations

According to Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations, which were made mandatory in the United Kingdom from 1997 onwards, any electrical appliance that is connected to a mains power supply within rented accommodation must be certified as safe to use. Some of the most common electrical appliances that fall under this national legislation include; fridges, freezers, microwaves, televisions, vacuum cleaners, toasters, kettles, washing machines and gardening equipment.

If you neglect to adhere to this legislation then you could find yourself liable to pay damages to any of your residents who were injured by these electrical appliances whilst they were living in your rented accommodation.

Qualified electricians

For many years Portable Appliance Testing, or PAT testing as it is commonly known, has been universally accepted as the most effective manner of complying with this legislation. At Nirvana Electrical Ltd all of our electricians possess the qualifications and specialist training needed to carry out PAT testing on electrical appliances and we carry all of the appropriately calibrated PAT testing equipment.

Certify your appliances

We will carry out an accurate PAT test on each and every appliance within your rented accommodation. We will then proceed to attach a PAT testing label to each appliance that passes the test. This certified PAT testing label will outline the date on which the appliance passed its test, the name of the electrician who carried out the PAT test and the date when the next PAT test is due to be carried out.
