PWS are highly experienced in ensuring landlords comply with statutory guidance for renting domestic properties. In recent years we have completed over 200 EICR tests and fire alarm installs for letting agents and private landlords to ensure their properties are safe and functional for tenants. We offer a landlords package including an electrical installation condition report, portable appliance testing and smoke/heat/CO alarms with fire alarm certificate as required. Electrical wiring and portable appliances in a domestic rental property must be checked every 5 years.
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, registered, accredited electricians. Let PWS electricians Glasgow, cover you, your tenants and your property, we can do most jobs without disrupting you or your tenants, 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 requirements 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, heat and carbon monoxide (CO) alarms throughout their properties. Due to recent legislation, alarms can now be 10 year battery only with radio-link technology to wirelessly interlink. The gold standard is still a mains powered alarm with battery backup, however the new option for battery only alarms can save on any potential damage routing cables. This is all backed by a fire alarm system installation certificate for your compliance as a landlord. All domestic Scottish homes must be protected by the same system of fire alarms as rentals by February 2022.
Current regulations mean that landlords must now ensure that they have smoke alarms fitted in the hall, lounge and a heat alarm in the kitchen and CO alarms fitted in every room there is a fuel burning appliance such as a gas boiler or fire. Failure to do this can lead to prosecution, PWS Electrical Services, can guide you through exactly what you need to protect yourself and tenants.
As well as ensuring you comply with new landlords regulations, we also provide maintenance and emergency call out services to landlords throughout Glasgow. 24/7 on call, for all your electrical support needs.
