Nottingham PAT Testing
Nottingham landlords who rent out residential accommodation are legally required to ensure that any equipment that they supply to their tenants is safe.
Under the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994, all types of mains electrical equipment found in residential accommodation, such as washing machines, cookers, microwaves and toasters, must be safe. This holds true regardless of whether the appliances are brand new or second-hand. Landlords in Nottingham must therefore inspect the electrical appliances that they supply on a regular basis to ensure that they remain safe and they can do this through cheap PAT testing Nottingham.A landlord is responsible for ensuring that they adhere to the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 whenever a tenant signs a tenancy contract. It is therefore imperative for a landlord to ensure that the appliances housed within a property are fully checked over prior to the tenant moving in. Landlords should make a record of the electrical items supplied and make checks on these items. A landords PAT testing record should list the name of the professional who performed the safety checks and the date on which the checks were performed.Landlords are strongly advised to have all of their electrical equipment checked prior to the start of each new let and at frequent intervals thereafter and landlords must acquire and retain the results of any PAT tests carried out on their electrical equipment.
