Electrical Tests & Landlord Testing in Burnley

If you are a Landlord of any type of property it is up to you to ensure that the property is fully compliant in relation to your obligations.

At Avon Electrical we can provide a simple inspection and report on the condition of the electrical installation of a property. This service provides a landlord with a very cost effective and reliable way of understanding if any parts of your electrical installation pose a potential threat or danger to your tenants or potential tenants.

All electrical services for landlords in Burnley should always be carried out in accordance with the the UK national standard for the safety of electrical installations, BS 7671: 2001 (IEE Wiring Regulations). Although BS 7671 is not a statutory document, installations conforming to that standard are regarded by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) as likely to achieve conformity with the relevant parts of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.

Any electrician or installation engineer carrying out electrical services for landlords, whether as an employer, employee or self-employed person, must comply with the relevant requirements of the Electricity at Work Regulations. In particular, Regulation 16 of those regulations requires that all persons (other than D.I.Y.ers) working on electrical installations must have appropriate technical knowledge and experience to prevent danger or injury.

The majority of insurance companies now insist on evidence of inspections and testing being carried out on any rented property and will not honour a claim if this evidence is not provided. This is why the importance of our electrical services for landlords in Burnley is essential. In some cases insurance companies offer discounts to landlords who can show evidence of this work being carried out.

We contacted Avon Electrical following a recommendation – from the outset Nick was helpful, visited site promptly to quote for the works and responded quickly to emails. It turned to be a more comprehensive job than initially thought but Nick kept us informed, had to go to site more than originally planned and had a couple of extra issues to deal with but everything was resolved satisfactorily at the prices quoted and Nick has even helped with queries since works were completed. Very pleased with the work carried out and excellent service. Would definitely recommend.

Absolutely fantastic work I hired the guys from Avon electrical after being recommended them by one of my customers . I hired them for some commercial work at my gym, They turned up on time and even got me a coffee , they explained all the work that they were going to do and a few changes which would work better and save me some money. Would absolutely recommend
