We can detect whether there are any faults present which could be fixed or you may need to supply new electrical equipment. A landlords PAT certificate is important because it can protect you from claims that your tenants can make against you. If they obtain an injury from the electrical equipment that you supplied which hasn’t been checked, then you may have to pay out large compensation fines. Whereas, if you have a valid PAT certificate, then you will not be held liable as you took the appropriate measures to ensure their safety.
