What Are The Electrical Safety Requirements For Brentford Landlords?

The new electrical safety regulation that came into effect on 1st June 2020 requires Brentford landowners to ensure their rental properties are inspected every five years by a qualified electrician.

Brentford landlords are also required to obtain an EICR (Electrical Inspection Condition Report) and provide all tenants with a copy as evidence that the property is safe.

Brentford landlords should ensure that all electrical installations and equipment within their rental properties comply with local safety standards and regulations. This includes wiring, outlets, switches, and electrical appliances provided as part of the rental property.

The Brentford landlord is responsible for taking action quickly when tenants report electrical repairs or issues.

It is the landlord's duty to ensure all electrical systems remain operational throughout their tenancy; any faulty wiring, outlets or switches must be addressed immediately by an experienced Brentford electrician.

What Happens If A Brentford Landlord Fails An Electrical Installation Safety Report?

If a Brentford landlord's property fails its electrical installation safety report, the landlord has a 28-day window to hire an Brentford electrician to fix identified hazards; otherwise, they are likely to receive a fine or a Prohibition Order, which prevents the landlord from renting out the property until the electrical issues are resolved.

The Brentford landlord must undertake the necessary repairs and remediation work to bring the electrical installation up to the required safety standards. This typically involves hiring a local Brentford electrician to rectify any identified issues.

What Are The Most Common Electrical Faults In Brentford Homes?

The most common electrical faults found in Brentford homes include overloaded circuits, frequent circuit breaker tripping, flickering lights, faulty outlets, exposed wiring, and overheated circuits.

Addressing these issues quickly once they are identified and ensuring regular electrical inspections are carried out by Brentford electricians can enhance safety and prevent potential hazards in your Brentford home.

Here is a snapshot of some of the most common electrical faults our Brentford electricians encounter;

  • Overloaded Circuits
  • Frequent Circuit Breaker Tripping
  • Flickering Lights
  • Faulty Outlets
  • Exposed Wiring

Overloaded Circuits

Plugging too many appliances and devices into a single circuit can overload it, leading to circuit breakers tripping or fuses blowing. This is a common issue our Brentford electricians encounter, especially in older Brentford homes with fewer circuits.

Frequent Circuit Breaker Tripping

Circuit breakers that keep tripping could indicate electrical problems such as poor wiring, overloaded circuits or short circuits that need attention.

 It’s a good idea to have our Brentford electricians check out the problem as it could be an indicator of something more serious.

Flickering Lights

Flickering or dimming lights could be due to loose bulbs, broken switches or problems with the electrical wiring. To reduce potential electrical hazards, it's crucial to quickly identify and address their root cause.

Faulty Outlets

 Damaged or malfunctioning outlets can pose safety risks. Common problems include loose outlets, burnt or charred outlets, and outlets that don't hold plugs securely.

Exposed Wiring

Exposed wiring, either due to wear and tear, pests, or DIY projects gone wrong, is a safety hazard. It can lead to electrical shocks or fires.
