DOES YOUR WIRING NEED A SAFETY CHECK?
Insurance companies are specifying that both domestic and commercial property owners should have up-to-date wiring tests to ensure they are fully compliant with the IEE Wiring Regulations BS 7671 (2008) to ensure they are adequately covered and therefore properly insured. BS7671 refers to the periodic test and inspection of wiring which is a legal requirement for business premises. This also applies to landlords who let or sub-let and property sales. So if you’ve recently let or sub-let a property or are in the process of selling the property make sure you get the correct certification.
Nigel Paget of ANR Electrical of Bishop’s Stortford says that landlords often don’t realise that they need to have their wiring tested after each let in order that their insurance is valid. Aside from mandatory periodic business testing, he suggests that domestic users should also ask themselves the following questions to check whether they need to have their wiring tested:
If you answer yes to any of these questions then you are probably overdue for an inspection, contact Nigel Paget of ANR Electrical now for a free visual inspection of your wiring.
