Why Should I electrical PAT Test as a landlord?

As a landlord, you have a duty to prevent harm to your tenants from electrical appliances that you supply. Portable appliance testing is widely regarded as being the best way of complying with this obligation. Without a programme of planned appliance testing and maintenance, you could be legally liable for damages resulting from your untested appliances. This covers all portable appliances that you supply, including fridges and freezers, microwave ovens, televisions and vacuum cleaners.

The regulations on electrical appliances for landlords and/or letting agents The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994, mandatory since 1 January 1997, state that all electrical appliances supplied with let accommodation must be safe.

This applies to both new and second-hand appliances and covers all electrical items supplied for the intended use of the Tenant.
The only sure method of ensuring that these appliances are safe is to have them tested by a trained competent person using the appropriate calibrated portable appliance testing equipment

Are you an employer using portable appliances?
Do you employ more than 5 employees?
Do you carry out health and safety risk assessments?
