Landlord & Tenant Services

Ensure your home systems are safe and up to date

SMY Electrical Contractors has been providing a professional service for landlords and their tenants, ensuring their property is maintained to the highest standard for decades.

Electrical Safety Standards – Private Rented Sector Regulations

Any rented property that is privately owned, the landlord is required to ensure that the electrical safety standards are met and every electrical installation is inspected and tested by a suitably qualified and competent person at regular intervals not exceeding five years.

Our fully insured electricians are City Guilds qualified and Approved Part P, NICEIC Domestic Installers, giving you peace of mind that you are dealing with a trusted contractor. We will ensure your home electrical systems are safe and compliant with the latest Government legislation.

The type of certification or report you require depends on the extent and type of electrical installation or inspection and testing, that you have had carried out.

Electrical Installation Condition Report – EICR

The purpose of inspection and testing is to determine if the electrical installation is safe for continued use.  The legislation now states that privately rented properties will need a valid EICR or Electrical Installation Certificate if your property has been rewired within the last 5 years.

Electrical Installation Certificate – EIC
& Minor Electrical Installations Works Certificate- MEIWC

Should your property require remedial works you will then be issued with either an EIC or MEIWC once works are completed and must be kept with the original EICR

EIC is issued for major works such as new consumer units/fuse boards or complete rewiring. MEIWC is issued for minor works such as adding additional sockets, lights or repairs to an existing circuit.

Breach of the regulations

Local authorities are required to enforce the new legislation and can impose substantial fines for breaches of the regulations.
