HMO properties require more electrical testing services than a standard domestic property. A HMO property is required to receive an electrical installation condition report, portable appliance testing and emergency lighting testing.

How Often do I need to Receive my Electrical Testing Services?

The Frequency that you require electrical testing Richmond services is also dependent on the property type that you have.

Domestic Properties (Rental) – As the owner of a domestic rental property, you legally need to receive an electrical installation condition report every 5 years; it’s also recommended to receive this testing service if there is a change of tenancy. With the recommended PAT testing, you should aim to get this certificate every year to protect you against claims.

HMO properties are required to get their emergency lighting system tested every 6 months and a PAT testing service tested annually.

Self-Owned Domestic Property – Legally, you are not required to receive any electrical testing services, however, it’s highly recommended to receive an electrical installation condition report at least every 10 years.

Commercial and Industrial Properties – You need to obtain your electrical installation condition report every 5 years, your PAT testing every year, and your fire alarms and emergency lights tested every 6 months.


Why do I need These Electrical Tests?

With many electrical testing services, you have a legal requirement to receive them.

This is because our electrical testing services can help to prevent any electrical damage to your property and electrical injuries to its users by detecting faults early. Once these faults are detected, they can be rectified before they become dangerous. This can also help you avoid unnecessary electrical costs, as preventative measures are cheaper than needing reactive maintenance services.
