With rented residential accommodation,it is the Landlord’s responsibility to ensure that the electrical installation and appliances are safe when the tenancy begins under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System (HHSRS). The Institute of Electrical Engineers also recommends for residential accommodation that an inspection/test is carried out on a change of occupancy and an electrical certificate is produced.
Furthermore, if the property is a HMO then the Management Regulations bring an obligation to have fixed electrical installations inspected and tested at intervals not exceeding 5 years.
