How often should a domestic electrical installation be tested?
All private landlords are legally responsible for the electrical safety of their tenants in the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985. An electrical installation condition report, (previously known as the periodic inspection report) is required to reduce the possibility of accidental harm or death from an electrical fire. Electrical testing regulations recommended by the Electrical Safety Council advise that electrical installation reports should be completed at least every 10 years.
