Do you own a holiday let?

Do you have a holiday let or Airbnb property? That makes you a landlord! Private landlords are responsible for ensuring that an electrical safety inspection of their property is carried out by a registered electrician at least every five years.

Private landlords in Scotland are required by law to ensure that a rented house
meets the repairing standard at the start of a tenancy and throughout a tenancy. This includes 

– The installations in the house for the supply of electricity,
– Electrical fixtures and fittings, and
– Any appliances provided by the landlord under the tenancy are in a reasonable state of repair and in proper working order.

In order to fulfil this requirement, an electrical inspection condition report (EICR) needs to be done with satisfactory results.  This is required to be done at least every five years. 

Landlords are also required to ensure the property has satisfactory provision for detecting fires and for giving warning in the event of fire or suspected fire. The new regulations for this go into effect February 2022

Here at Munro Electrical Services, not only do we look after our customer’s primary homes, but also their privately letted properties.  

Give us a call today and talk to us about your investment properties.  We will help ensure you meet the legally required electrical safety standards.  

Remember, safety isn’t expensive; it’s priceless!
