The importance of electrical testing

16th November 2018

Every year, electricity causes over 20,000 accidental fires in the UK. Most are caused by electrical items - either through misuse or faults - and some are caused by outdated wiring in older homes.

Every five years we'll visit to test the electrics in your home. Our electrical contractors (Pride Electrical or Bilton and Johnson) will be in touch when your test is due and it's absolutely essential they do this, so make sure you book an appointment. The test takes around two hours to complete.

If any faults are found that would cause an immediate danger, they'll be fixed straightaway, but we may need to come and see you again if more work is required.

Under the terms of your tenancy agreement, you have a responsibility to allow us into your home to carry out electrical works. If you don't let us in, we might have to take legal action against you.
