As a Landlord You should ensure the electrical appliances includes with you rental property are safe - The only way to ensure this is to get them tested

Electricity is dangerous, According to RoSPA, 3,000 people were hospitalised
in just one year due to electrical current accidents and in 1995 electricity killed
66 people, injured 23,756 and caused 7,500 fires.

Are the appliances and electrical equipment YOU supply your tenants safe?
(i.e. Refrigerators, washing machines, kettles etc)

The only way to ensure that they are safe is to have a Portable Appliance Test (PAT)
carried out.

If they are not safe and one of your tenants were to be injured as a result you could
risk a large fine and/or imprisonment!

''Any defence, should a claim be made against you, is likely to fail under Due Diligence
if there was a reasonable step that could have been taken but was not''

States as constituting good engineering practice in relation to safety matters and in
particular shall be designed and constructed to ensure that it is safe when connected

Regulation 17(1)
Where a contravention of regulation 14 arises from the supply of electrical equipment
which fails to satisfy the requirements of regulations 5(1) or of goods which would cause
the relevant equipment to contravene those requirements because there is in each case

of death of a person or of personal injury, the person who contravenes regulation 14
shall be guilty of an offence punishable on summary conviction with imprisonment for
