NICEIC - Electrical Safety Check

An electrical safety check must be commissioned prior to the commencement of a tenancy and must be carried out by a competent person (a Part P qualified electrician in kitchens and bathrooms) to ensure that the electrical supply and all appliances are legal.

This includes supplying instruction books where needed for safe use.


Failure to comply with Electrical Regulations may constitute a criminal offense under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 that carries a maximum penalty or summary conviction of a £5,00 fine and/or six months imprisonment. This legislation means that landlords have a legal obligation and a duty of care to tenants to ensure that the electrical installation and equipment supplied is safe.
