In 1996 it became a legal requirement for Landlords to ensure that any rental property has a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate carried out annually, on all gas appliances. Landlords must ensure that all gas appliances and flues fitted in any property have an annual landlord gas safety check by a gas safe registered engineer. Gas Safety Regulations put strict requirements on Landlords to ensure that the boiler and gas systems in rental properties are safe and well maintained on an annual basis. However, there is not the same level of requirement on Landlords to ensure that the electrics in a property are adequate and PAT testing is not a compulsory requirement unlike Gas Safety Inspections. The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 provides that an electrical installation in a property is “Safe when a tenancy begins” and “Maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy”.
