Local electrician for safety certificates and testing who can quickly and easily carry out an electrical safety inspection to issue an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) on the safety of the electrical installations, fixtures and fittings and a Portable Appliance Test (PAT) on portable appliances.

No job too small, replacing a cable on an electrical appliance that has been taped together by a tenant or neatening and replacing cables that have had heavy furniture resting on them. Or too big, adding extra electrical socket outlets to meet House of Multiple Occupancy (HMO) properties rules or install emergency lights in an escape route.

Domestic electrician for safety certificates and services include;

Landlord safety certificate

  • electrical fixed wire testing, carried out every five years, testing fuses and circuit breakers, assessing the general condition of the electrical wiring, circuits, accessories e.g. sockets, light switches, light fittings… checking if earthing, bonding and incoming supply is sufficient
  • portable appliance test (PAT), performed yearly, replacing plug and fuses where necessary and inspecting all portable electrical appliances that are portable regardless of their size
  • smoke and heat alarms, all which must be hard wired and interlinked, with one heat alarm in the kitchen and a smoke alarm in hallways, landings and living room

House in multiple occupation (HMO) 

  • when three tenants or more occupy a property and are not related, this is classed as a house share or HMO, safety electrical testing must be carried out every five years and includes ensuring enough power sockets in each room to cope without overloading sockets as well as emergency lighting exits

So, if you need an electrician for safety certificates and to service or repair something in your home HaMuch has thousands of friendly, NICEIC registered professionals ready to help with your frayed wire at the back of the fridge, damaged bent pins on a hoover plug, not enough plug power sockets to meet the tenancy requirements per room and overheating toaster plug.

Do I need to hire a local specialist for my landlord 'electrical safety certificate and PAT test'?

With any rented residential accommodation in the UK, it is the landlord's responsibility to ensure that all electrical installations and appliances are safe. This applies from the moment the tenancy begins, right up until it ends, so as a landlord you need to ensure that electrics are continually kept in good working order.

PAT tests are routine inspections of electrical appliances in a property, using specialist PAT equipment to check that everything is working correctly. If your appliances only require a reduced or standard test, you will still need a specialist to carry out a PAT insulation test. It’s also vitally important for a landlord to ensure that fire, smoke and CO alarms are working, and that a home’s security systems are all in order.

If you are a landlord looking for a specialist PAT testing service, engaging the services of a professional will ensure that testing on all seven categories of appliances are carried out as required.

What do landlord electrical safety certificate and PAT testing specialists near you do?

PAT technicians perform a wide range of appliance tests and assessments, including:

  • Safety inspections: A qualified technician can perform PAT tests efficiently, with minimal disruption to a home.
  • Issuing landlord safety certificates: Upon completion of the PAT test, certification will be issued and evidence of testing will then be placed on each appliance.
  • Installation, repair & rewiring of electrical cables and systems: Most PAT specialists are also professional electricians, which means they can undertake the job of rewiring or repairing any electrical faults in your property. This includes mains wiring and sub-power installation and repair.
  • PAT and fixed testing advice: A professional technician can provide you with accurate, up-to-date, technical information on PAT testing and fixed wire testing.
