Our Landlords and Agents services
Reliable, Punctual, Complaint and Efficient
We understand that it is important for an agent or Landlord to rely on the services of the contractors that are instructed for works which are required. We are 5* rated on Google and we pride ourselves on our efficient our service. We adhere to the highest standards and ensure that the properties we are asked to test and maintain are compliant with the most up to date regulations. We will work with both the Landord, agent and the tenant (where necessary) because we know that time efficiency and commerciality is important too so the service we provide is tailored to needs of each customer.
At the heart of a Landlords responsibility is to ensure the health and safety of their tenants. As part of this, it is a legal requirement to ensure that the electrical installation in your rented property is inspected and tested by a qualified and competent person at intervals of at least every 5 years. If the installation is not safe for continued use the report will state this and if codes C1, C2 or FI are identified on the report, then remedial work will be required to make the electrical installation safe for continued use before the tenant moves in.
Portable appliance testing (PAT) is the term used to describe the examination of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure that these are safe to use. The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 require that any electrical equipment that has the potential to cause injury is maintained in a safe condition. The frequency of inspection and testing depends upon the type of equipment and the environment where it is situated. For example, a power tool used on a construction site should be examined more frequently than a lamp in a hotel bedroom. We can carry out portable appliance testing at the same time as the EICR to save you time and money.
EICR Coding explained
Code 1 (C1): Danger present. Risk of injury. The electrical inspector may make any C1 hazards safe before leaving the property.
Code 2 (C2): Potentially dangerous. The works identified should be carried out as soon as possible
Further Investigation (FI): Further investigation required without delay (this must be carried out).
Code 3 (C3): Improvement recommended. Further remedial work is not required for the report to be deemed satisfactory (improvement is recommended. Landlords don’t have to make the improvement, but it would improve the safety of the installation if they did.)
