Is PAT Testing compulsory for rental properties?

The Law requires landlords, who let residential accommodation, to ensure the electric equipment supplied is safe. PAT Testing is one way that a landlord can ensure the electric equipment is safe.

The supply of electrical goods and portable appliances occurs at the time the tenancy contract starts. It is advisable, before tenancy starts, to inspect all electrical portable appliances. Electrical inspection on portable appliances should be recorded as part of the tenancy agreement. The record should state who carried out the checks and the date of inspection.

Is Portable Appliance Testing a Law?

The law states that all electrical equipment within a rental property must be safe to use. The landlord has a responsibility to ensure electrical equipment is safe before tenants move in and during the tenancy too.

The Electrical Safety Council recommends landlords make visual inspections on electrical goods. This means all mains electrical equipment is safe when supplied in a rental property.

It is good practice to have the equipment checked before a property is let, and at regular intervals thereafter. You should get and keep test reports detailing the equipment, the tests carried out and the results.
