If you rent out a property, you may require an electrician and Wills Electrical Services are the company you need. We’ve done works for a number of landlords and letting agencies for many years.
The law on electrical testing in rental properties is changing shortly. From 1st July 2020 any properties newly tenanted will require an electrical condition report & from 1st April 2021 all existing tenanted properties will need to comply as well.
If a property has not had electrical works carried out in recent years, it may be that some upgrading is required, but we can always advise on this and will always give you all the options available.

Legally from 2015 only battery operated smoke detectors are required, as a minimum in hallways and landings. However, from 2019 new regulations BS 5839-6:2019 state mains wired interlinked smoke detectors are required in hallways, landings, lounges and a heat detector in the kitchen.
As a landlord currently you only have comply with the 2015 law, but the best practice advice is to work to current regulations, and its probable that at some point these new regulations will become law. So if you are doing any renovation works on the property, now is the time to install them.
