We are also able to offer fixed wiring inspections when they are needed. 

Requirements for Inspection and Testing

The fixed wiring system requires an inspection every 5 years, but appliances which can be damaged much more easily require more regular attention. 

Appliances should be inspected and tested at the start of every tenancy, so you and the tenant know they are safe, and then they should be checked at regular intervals (usually every year) thereafter. 

Portable appliances in a property usually include the likes of fridge freezers, washing machines, microwaves, kettles, televisions, etc. 

PAT Testing Prices, per property

The following prices are per property

Standard rented houses or flats including with less than 10 appliances £30.00
Standard rented houses or flats including up to 15 appliances £35.00
Houses with multiple occupancy or up to 30 appliances £49.00

Landlords are required by law to:

  • ensure that the electrical installation in a rented property is safe when tenants move in and maintained in a safe condition throughout its duration (including appliances)
  • ensure that a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) has a periodic inspection carried out on the property every five years. 
  • ensure that any appliances provided are safe and have CE marking 

To meet these requirements landlords will need to carry out regular safety checks to ensure the electrical installation and appliances are safe and working.
