All landlords that let residential accommodation which includes flats, apartments, houses, holiday homes and caravans as a business activity are required by law to ensure the electrical appliances they supply as part of the tenancy are safe and adhere to the Health & Safety guidelines .
Portable appliance testing is widely regarded as being the best way of complying with this obligation.
Without a programme of planned appliance testing and maintenance, you will be legally liable for damages resulting from your untested appliances. This covers all portable appliances that you supply, including fridges, freezers, microwaves, ovens, televisions, washing machines, vacuum cleaners and any garden equipment.
