Guide for landlords: electrical safety standards in the private rented sector – New Regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested by a person who is qualified and competent, at an interval of at least every 5 years. Landlords have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report to their tenants, and to their local authority if requested. This means that all landlords now have to make sure the electrical installations in their rented properties are safe. The Regulations came into force on 1 June 2020 and form part of the Department’s wider work to improve safety in all residential premises and particularly in the private rented sector.

Building Regulations – Regulations were brought in stating that all properties built after and including June 1992 must be fitted with mains operated smoke alarms or detectors on each floor.
