Landlord PAT Tests Leeds

Although it is not a required legal obligation for landlords in England and Wales, portable appliance testing (PAT) is nonetheless regarded as best practice. All electrical items provided as part of a lease, or inside a rental property, must be safe for use, according to government-mandated responsibilities.

In HMOs, PAT testing is often required yearly but it is not legally necessary unless specifically required as a condition of a licence.

Items that require PAT testing in a property include:

  • Fridges
  • Microwaves
  • Kettles
  • Toasters
  • Dishwashers
  • Ovens
  • Televisions
  • Lamps
  • Washing machines
  • Tumble dryers
  • Vacuum cleaners
  • Heated towel rails
  • Extension leads

Scott Electrical carry out PAT tests and electrical inspections to an array of businesses and tenanted properties across Leeds and Yorkshire.
