A portable appliance testing (PAT) certificate is a certificate that you receive when an electrician has tested your portable electrical appliances and equipment. As a landlord of a standard domestic property, you are not required to receive a portable appliance testing certificate, however, it is highly recommended. This is because it can protect you from claims that a tenant may make due to an injury from an electrical appliance. If an injury were to occur and you don’t have a valid PAT certificate, then you could be liable to pay compensation. Having a valid PAT certificate shows that you took the appropriate measures to protect your tenants.
