As experts in their field, MJF Electrical are trusted by Landlords & Letting Agents across Gloucestershire with their electrical needs.
Approximately 4.4 million households in the UK are currently living in privately rented accommodation according to figures from Statista. With increasing house prices and the current economic crisis, this figure is expected to rise over the next 5 years. This means an increased demand on Landlords and Letting Agents.
As of April 2021, private landlords in England must hire a qualified electrician to carry out an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) in their rental property every five years. There is a penalty of up to £30,000 for a failure to comply, this includes failing to complete any necessary remedial works highlighted in the report.
We also recommend Landlords undertake a regular PAT Test. Landlords have a legal obligation to ensure electrical equipment is safe for its intended use. Failure to uphold your duty of care to the tenant could result in a negligence claim if they were harmed.
