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 current legislation 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, registerd, accredited electricians. Let PWS, electricians Glasgow, cover you, your tennants and your property, we can do most jobs without disrupiting you or your tennants, we issue full certification upon completion of all jobs, so you get peace of mind knowing that you have complied with your obligations as a Landlord, dont risk the chance of prosecution, give one of our team a call to discuss your requirments and cost, with no obligation to yourself.
Landlords must have their properties electrical system and portable appliances tested every 5 years, and ensure the provision of interlinked smoke and heat alarms throughout their properties.
