• By 1st April 2021, all property & their tenants should have electrical certificate.
• Landlord must need to provide a copy to new or existing tenant.

Electrical Appliance Safety (PAT)

Portable appliance falls under electrical safety regulation. It is not a legal requirement for private homes (single private dwelling). But if a landlord provides any electrical appliance as part of the tenancy, the law expects the appliance will be maintained in a safe condition that will not cause harm to the tenant. Failure to do so could lead to the landlord being sued for negligence.

It is advisable that landlords should test their applainces to avoid any future uncertainty which might cause your insurance to be declined.

• In HMO licencing application, councils require PAT testing certificate along with other necessary documentations.
