Guidance on electrical installations updated

The guidance for sponsors around what is expected around electrical safety has been clarified and is now updated on the website.

Electrical installations – we will be expecting to see an electrical safety certificate for fixed electrical systems at a private rented property but not an owner-occupied one, in line with current regulations. We will look at electrical hazards within the property as part of the inspection. PAT testing is not expected as it relates to electrical safety in workplaces and portable equipment, though we recognise that some landlords do carry this out.
