Landlords Legal Electrical Obligations

As a landlord, it is your responsibility under law to make sure that the electrics in your property are safe. Part P of the Building Regulations is there for your safety. It was introduced in England and Wales on the 1st January 2005 in order to reduce the number of accidents in the home related to faulty electrical installations. In essence Part P means that any electrical installation work carried out will be of the highest standard, and that your tenants will be safer as a result. It brings the electrical contracting industry in line with other trades such as gas fitting and maintenance. Complying with Part P is something that you must do. Failure to meet the requirements of Part P is a criminal offence and local authorities have the power to enforce the removal or alteration of work that does not meet the necessary standards.
