New to Electrical & Gas Safety Checks
On or after 29th of March 2021, Rental Properties will need to undergo Electrical & Gas Safety Checks as soon as practicable prior to entering into a new agreement with current Renters or new re-let of the property. If you have a fixed term agreement of more than five years which rolls over into a periodic tenancy on or after 29th March 2021 you will need to get Safety Checks as soon as practicable.
There may be components of the Electrical and Gas installations within a rented premises requiring upgrade or new installation on and from 29th of March 2023, such as location of heaters and installation of Residual Current Devices. We will check this and provide our assessment for these mandatory changes in the Safety Check report.
If requested by Renters, a copy of the most recent Electrical, Gas & Smoke Alarm Safety Check report must be provided to the Renter within 7 days of initial request.
Renters must be provided with the Smoke Alarm instruction manuals for all installed alarms on the premises. And are to be notified that Smoke Alarms must not be tampered with, Renters to notify if there are faults.
