Landlords, look no further for efficient, timely, well scheduled and non-disruptive electrical services. We can provide the full range of testing, inspection, certification and, if necessary, any remedial works. At Howard Facilities, we believe every person deserves a safe place to call home. And inspection and vetting against current safety standards is the only way to ensure this. Each year, electrical faults trigger more than half of all accidental household fires. Which is why landlords should make electrical safety their priority.
New Government regulations came into force on 1st June 2020. These make it mandatory for landlords within the private rented sector to have their electrical installations tested every five years. Also, this can be required more frequently for older buildings. Also, and any household equipment provided requires testing and certification.
The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 act dictates that electrical installations in rental properties must be assessed and repaired by a qualified engineer. Also, the regulations apply to all properties within the sector, including HMOs (Houses of Multiple Occupancy).
This is where we come in. Howard Facilities offers comprehensive testing, inspection services and same-day remedial works to private landlords across London and the South East. So, you can rest assured that your properties are up-to-date with current safety standards.
Key to this is fixed wire testing but our services also include:
EICR / Residential Condition Reports
A Residential Condition Report is a survey that provides an overview of a property’s condition and risk factors. So, at Howard Facilities, we will carry out a thorough examination of the electrical installations within your property. Then we highlight any remedial works needed and advise on next steps. Further we are experts at producing fast, timely and non-disruptive landlords’ certificates and EICRs.
Our PAT Testing services will render your property and all the appliances within it compliant with current safety standards. These are in place to prevent injury or damage from electrical faults. Our comprehensive service includes visual inspections, thorough electrical testing and detailed labelling.
Consumer Unit Upgrades
Out-dated consumer units, or fuse boxes, can be life-threatening. Therefore it’s important for landlords to be aware of the age and current condition of their property’s equipment. In addition, all new consumer units offer dual protection Residual Current Devices (RCD). These detect errors and trip the system, cutting off the power to stop the risk of fire or injury. We can upgrade your system to ensure it offers necessary protection and complies with current safety rules.
Under the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020, landlords have 28 days to arrange any repair work, once an inspection has been carried out. At Howard Facilities, we can complete remedial work on the very same day. And this reduces the amount of bookings needed and minimises disruption for your tenants. Further this same day remedial service brings costs right down.
We can handle the booking of all jobs with the individual tenants. And we offer lower rates for multiple properties. Plus, with fast certificate turnaround times, you can sit back and let us take care of your homes and your tenants.
