Landlord Electrical safety certificate Plymouth. Landlord Electrical safety certificate is an Electrical Safety Report which involves an inspection of all electrical circuits, sockets, lights, fuse board and earth bonding to water and gas services. Specialist test meter is used and the inspection normally takes between an hour to half a day depending on the number of electrical circuits and type of property. Goodwin Electrical carry out landlord electrical safety certificates in Plymouth and surrounding areas.
All electrical accessories, circuits and cabling deteriorate with time and use. This is why it is so important to have everything checked to ensure either you or your tenants are not put at risk.
WHAT HAPPENS DURING THE INSPECTION
From time to time things can go wrong in your own home or even worse in one of your rental properties. This can be a stressful time trying to find somebody reliable to the job, ensuring they will do a good job and within a fair price.
The testing will reveal if any circuits or parts of the installation are overloaded, identify if any parts of the installation are at risk of electrical shock and/or fire risk hazard. The report will also pick up on whether there is any defective DIY work which will need attention or if there is any lack of earth bonding on gas and water supplies.
Further testing will be carried out on wiring and on fixed point appliances such as appliances that are built in into your kitchen. Plug sockets are also tested so that you have a very thoroughly completed test report.
All our engineers are NICEIC approved with the relevant electrical qualifications and competence. The Electrician will check the electrical installation against the current requirements of BS 7671 Requirements for Electrical Installations (lET Wiring Regulations 18th Edition) which is the national safety standard for electrical installations.
