Making sure the rental homes of your UK employees are electrically safe

The UK government has tightened regulations around this issue in line with the rules that have applied since 1998 to gas installations.  The new rules apply to leases granted from 1 July and they will apply to ALL leases after 1 April 2021.

All electrical installations must be inspected/tested by a qualified person at least every five years.

As part of an employer’s duty to safeguard, it’s good practice to put in place a system to ensure the landlord in each case has provided all necessary safety certificates.  For new leases, it should be obtained before the renter takes occupation of the home.

Any questions? If so we'd love to hear about it, so please get in touch.

I am really grateful to Saunders 1865 for helping me with the home finding process in London. I am sure I wouldn't be able to find such nice apartment just in 3 days. Very good job! Thank you!
