Rewires
Please select from the list of services below:

› Looking to let your property?

› Is your electrical Installation safe to be used by your tenants?

› When was the last time that you had your electrics checked?

The best way to determine the current condition of an electrical installation is to have a Periodic Inspection and Test Report completed. This type of electrical report is often carried out before a rewire where there is uncertainty or concern over the existing condition of the installation.

Some signs of an older electrical installation include:

■ Old wooden fuse boards with wooden backs
■ Cast iron switches
■ Cables that are coated in black rubber (TRS) 1945 – 1966
■ Lead sheathed cables installed pre 1948
■ Fabric sheathed cables installed pre 1948
■ Round black Bakerlite switches
■ Braided flex cable from ceiling rose light fittings
■ Old round pin sockets
■ Socket outlets mounted on skirting boards
■ Old rewirable fuses
■ Double pole fusing pre 1950 – some circuits had a fuse in both live and neutral

If your installation has any of the above signs or you are concerned for its safety, then it’s time for an upgrade!

We can rewire your property before your tenants move in, giving them a safer place to live and give you the peace of mind that they are safe whilst staying in your premises.

Warning!

If any electrical fittings or appliances within your rental property cause harm to a tenant you could be held liable, with the tenant taking you to court with a claim for damages for negligence.

Note: The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 and the Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 require landlords to ensure that their electrical installations and appliances are safe when a tenancy begins, and that it is maintained in a safe condition throughout that tenancy.

One way to ensuring safety is to undertake a regular formal inspection of the fixed wiring together with any supplied electrical appliances such as cookers, kettles, toasters, washing machines and immersion heaters etc.
