Borough of Lambeth Landlord PAT Testing

Landlords are legally obligated to ensure all electrical appliances provided with rental properties are safe for use. Failure to do so could result in criminal negligence charges and penalties if renters suffer injury or property damage due to unsafe electrical equipment.

Why should you arrange a Landlord's PAT test? Simply put, it ensures compliance with electrical safety obligations, shields against penalties for non-compliance, and safeguards tenants from harm. PAT Testing confirms appliance safety, reducing the risk of claims for damages due to unsafe equipment.

Investing in these tests demonstrates your commitment to providing safe, quality housing for tenants, enhancing their overall rental experience.
