Landlord Safety Inspections
According to electricity at work regulations, the liability for insuring that the electrical installation in let premises is safe, is on the persons leasing or letting the properties, including landlords, letting and managing agents.
The liability for any injury to occupiers or damage to these premises, will not be on companies, which may avoid prosecution, but on the persons letting or managing the premises.
The let premises should be inspected periodically in order to ensure that the installations initially comply, and that they will continue to comply with BS7671 throughout their life.
The report issued by the Inspecting company is called Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) and is also known as "Landlord Electrical Safety Certificate".
If you are unsure as to your duties, under insurance regulations, please contact your insurer and request further information (usually found in the small print of the policy).
The recommended interval between inspections of let premises is 5 years or change of tenant/occupier (the earliest of the two).
