Expert electrical services for landlords in Cardiff and throughout South Wales

As a Landlord of a property you have a duty of care to the tenants of that property and should be aware of being fully compliant in relation to your obligations. A simple inspection and report on the condition of the electrical installation of that property might make all the difference.

James Installation & Maintenance Limited can carry out this inspection as part of its electrical services for landlords in South Wales. It is called a Periodic Inspection Report of an Electrical Installation and is a very cost effective way of understanding if any parts of your installation pose a potential threat or danger to your tenants.

All electrical landlord services in Cardiff in domestic premises should always be carried out in accordance with the requirements laid down in the UK national standard for the safety of electrical installations, BS 7671: 2001 (IEE Wiring Regulations). Although BS 7671 is not a statutory document, installations conforming to that standard are regarded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) as likely to achieve conformity with the relevant parts of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989. The Electricity at Work Regulations is a statutory instrument requiring precautions to be taken against the risk of death or personal injury from electricity in work activities.

Essential electrical landlord services

All electricians and installers carrying out electrical services for landlords, whether as an employer, employee or self-employed person, must comply with the relevant requirements of the Electricity at Work Regulations. In particular, Regulation 16 of those regulations requires that all persons (other than D.I.Y.ers) working on electrical installations must have appropriate technical knowledge and experience to prevent danger or injury.

Most insurance companies now insist on evidence of inspections and testing being carried out on rented property and will not honour claims if evidence is not provided, so the importance of our electrical services for landlords in Cardiff and South Wales is paramount. Furthermore, discounts are available for those who can show evidence of this being carried out.
