Landlord’s Responsibility to Ensure Electrical Safety


As a landlord, you’re required to ensure all electrical wiring, installations and appliances are safe and in good working order for your tenants and have an Electrical Installation Condition Report for evidence.

 For only £99* per property at Overton Electrical Services Ltd we can simply test your electrical installation and ensure it is safe for your tenants and provide you with this report.


Why Do I Require This Report? Is it a Legal Requirement?

Yes if you do any of the following:-

  • Rent a property to tenants
  • Rent your property to a council and require an electrical inspection report.
  • If your property is a House in Multiple Occupancy (HMO).

What does the Test Involve?

  • A thorough visual inspection of a random sample of parts of the electrical installation by our qualified and experienced Overton Engineers
  • A series of electrical tests to determine the safety of the electrical installation.

What if there is any Remedial Work to be done?

  • It is your responsibility to ensure this work is undertaken and we are happy to offer you a highly competitive quotation free of charge
  • A price will be quoted – NO work will be done without your agreement

What’s included in the Price?

  • A Fixed Wire Test which is a thorough test of your electrical installation
  • The provision of an Electrical Installation Condition Report
  • A complimentary reminder when the next text is required for peace of mind

How often is the Test Required?

  • If your property has not had its full electrics checked within the last five years it must be done immediately
  • The test is then required every five years for properties over ten years old
  • A test is required following any changes within the property to the electrics
  • Plus on the changing of tenancy in case they have interfered with any electrics

What is not included in the Test?

  • We do not test any portable appliances such as washing machines, fridges, freezers etc. These require a separate PAT (Portable Appliance Test) call now for a quote. Tel: Overton Electrical Services Ltd on: 01623 632302

Note: If you do not pass the test a failure certificate would be issued and would have to be re tested unless remedial were carried out at the same time. If any of the appliances fail our inspection, it is your responsibility to make sure that the appliances are repaired or replaced and a secondary test is required if you do not use our services. This is standard.
