Landlords EICR & PAT Testing
We offer Electrical maintenance such as PAT testing and Electrical Testing accompanied by EICR certificates.
Landlords need to undertake electrical inspections for legal and insurance purposes. At the strat of each new tenancy or every five years.
Homeowners are free to have electrical inspections for peace of mind that their electrical system’s safe.
PAT (portable appliance) testing is a recommended safety procedure for landlords, employers and the self-employed.
PAT testing can also be done for homeowners who want extra peace of mind when it comes to electrical safety around the home.
PAT testing involves inspecting and testing plug-in appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe for use by tenants and employees.
After testing, everyone involved can rest assured that the appliances are safe and won’t cause an electrical accident. Any faulty appliances found can be replaced or repaired.
PAT testing isn’t a legal requirement. Landlords and employers are, however, responsible for ensuring the safety of their employees and tenants.
That’s why PAT testing is recommended and good practice.
PAT testing not only protects your tenants and employees but will also help protect you from legal ramifications in the event of an electrical accident at your property or premises.
It’s recommended landlords undergo PAT testing every two years. Employers should undertake PAT testing every six months to two years. The frequency depends on your line of business and the type of commercial property.
