Our Landlord Services: The Costs and Services Offered
Landlord Electrical Services in Edinburgh
Landlords in Edinburgh and throughout Scotland are required by law to ensure that their property is safe from any electrical hazards. However, many landlords run the risk of exposing themselves to fines through their inability to act on their electrical safety obligations.
Not only are they putting themselves at significant financial risk, they are also putting millions of tenants at risk of serious accident or fire.
As we have previously mentioned, landlords have a legal obligation to protect their tenants from any electrical hazards. Landlords must ensure that the electrical installation within their property is safe for the time when tenants move in. It doesn’t stop there though, this safety must be maintained throughout the duration of the tenants’ stay.
Landlords must also ensure that any electrical appliance that is provided within the property is safe and has a ‘CE Marking’ on them. This marking is the manufacturer’s claim that the appliance has met all the requirements of European laws.
Therefore to meet these requirements, landlords will be responsible to regularly carry out basic safety checks in order to ensure that the electrical installation of their property and the electrical appliances within are safe and in working order.
Alternatively, landlords can contact an experienced electrical contractor who will be able to thoroughly carry out these electrical safety checks. By contacting an experience professional, landlords can rest easy knowing every individual wire in their property has been accounted for.
If you are a private landlord and are concerned about the electrical health of your property, then contact Keith Gunn Electrical Solutions today to discuss your situation.
