Landlord Safety Checks


The huge increase in the number of let properties available from private landlords over recent years has resulted in a marked increase in the scope and level of legislation affecting such properties. As a guide, each property requires;

  • A Period Inspection Report (PIR) of circuits and wiring to be carried out every 3 years.
  • Portable Appliance testing (PAT) on any electrical equipment provide by the landlord (toasters, kettle, fridge, TV etc) to be carried out annually.
  • At least one working smoke alarm on each floor of the property. Any smoke alarms installed from September 2007 must be mains wired. Existing smoke alarms can be either mains powered or battery powered. If broken smoke alarms are replaced after September 2007 they must be mains wired. In the case of HMO property a smoke detector is required in each room.
  • A Gas Safety Certificate.
  • An Energy Performance Certificate

Experience   eti has over 10 years experience of conducting safety checks in rented property including HMO's. We can provide an individually tailored service whether you are a private landlord or hold a portfolio of premises.

Services        Inspections can be carried out for individual services such as PIR, PAT, Fire Safety Certificate, Gas Safety Certificate and Energy Performance Certificate. Alternatively, a combination of  checks can be completed on a single combined inspection thereby reducing the number of visits to the premises.

Certificates   Certificates can be viewed, downloaded or printed direct from this website via the dedicated databank on the right of this page. Private landlords and Lettings Agents are issued with an individual password to access, download or forward certificates by email.

We also provide Landlord Safety Plans for single or multiple occupancy properties. See the Landlord Safety Plans page for more details.
