The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 is the main legislation in England and Wales which requires every electrical installation in a rental property to comply with the following:
- Electrical installations in rental properties are safe when tenants move in and maintained in a safe condition throughout its duration.

- Recommendation is that landlords have a full electrical inspection & test completed by and NICEIC or ELECSA electrician at least every 5 years or each change of occupancy.
- All electrical work must comply with Part P of the building regulations and be certified
- A house in multiple occupation (HMO) has a periodic inspection carried out on the property every five years.
- Appliances provided is safe and has at least the CE marking (which is the manufacturer’s claim that it meets all the requirements of European law)
- A landlord is also responsible for the communal areas of a house, block of flats, or an estate that residents use in common with other tenants
