All Edinburgh Landlords who let their property as a business activity are required by law to ensure the equipment they supply with the tenancy is safe.
The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 requires that all mains electrical equipment including white goods, cookers, toasters, etc. provided in rental accommodation regardless whether they are new or second hand must be safe.
We strongly advise that the Portable Appliance Test (PAT test) is conducted BEFORE the start of any new let or lease. This is the only way you can be certain that all appliances are safe. Landlords in Edinburgh, Letting Agents and Businesses who need to comply with The Health & Safety Act (1974) all will have to have a record of all this information.
We have our own fully qualified Edinburgh Electricians and competent engineers who are able to complete Portable Appliance Testing (PAT tests in Edinburgh) to the highest standard.
