The Scottish Government has issued Statutory Guidance on Electrical Installations and Appliances in Private Rented Property. The recently amended Housing (Scotland) Act includes a requirement for landlords to conduct five-yearly electrical checks of the fixed wiring and any electrical appliances supplied in privately rented homes from 1 December 2015.
The guidance states that these checks must be conducted by appropriately skilled persons and lists SELECT as one of the organisations whose Members meet this requirement. Rest assured, we are a SELECT registered company employing approved electricians
Landlords must have their properties electrical system and portable appliances tested every 5 years and ensure the provision of mains wired & interlinked smoke and heat alarms throughout their properties.
As well as ensure landlords comply with new landlord legislation, we also provide maintenance and emergency call out services to landlords throughout Glasgow.
In a typical flat landlords must now ensure smoke alarms are fitted in the hall and lounge and a heat alarm in the kitchen.
