    Pat testing

    Hi, every year I have all the electrical items in my properties tested even if they are tenants property.
    Can you write something in the tenancy about having items tested and paying for it.
    I've had a number of tenants items fail and it always causes problems when I say they need to remove it.
    Be interested to here views
    Cheers

    I think you only have to test items you supply as part of the tenancy.



    Freedom at the point of zero............

      Why are you testing every year? And why are you paying for tenants kit?

        I know you don't have to have pat test done, but in Bristol 5 years ago a landlord was fined 30k for a faulty fridge which went live and injured the tenants son Not only that but he was refused insurance and cover withdrawn.
        When the engineer is there he tests everything for one price, £15 one or twenty items

          My minimum charge is £60 for up to 20 items. Not sure how ANYBODY can do 20 items for £15 and make a profit , unless he's charging £15 per item!

            Thank you for the information. I am aware of what the DEIC covers and this information has already been confirmed in relation to this property.

            As previously stated, I am not looking for any technical advice, more suggestions as to which regulations may be applicable in this situation...

            If an appliance has been wired in a wholly unsuitable manner that has been deemed "unsafe", thus making it a potential safety hazard, what particular regulations would be applicable? There appears to be some overlap here, such as the General Product Safety Regs, Electrical Equipment Safety...

            I got your PM, I won't quote any of it here because forum rules don't allow that.

            TBH you could have posted it here in open view, it doesn't contain anything that couldn't have been said here.

            You should talk to a litigation solicitor, they will know or will look up the relevant...

            A new tenant moved in on 2nd August. I video recorded opening readings, and also entered them on tenancy agreement. Later that day I went online & entered the opening readings for my tenant. They sent me a bill using completely different readings, effectively charging me for my tenant's energy until...

            Thank you for the suggestion and if my new set of readings are not accepted which I will send in a couple of weeks time then I will go down this route. They will not reply to the complaint so Ombudsman it will be I suspect! Thanks again all....

            So I assume from what you say there that you are looking for some kind of compensation for living in an unsafe situation?

            If that is the intention then it would have been easier to say that, and get answers about that.

            I would like to know which regulations were breached in this instance. It is clear that the installation was unsafe and it is also clear that to provide an appliance that poses a safety risk is not acceptable. That the appliance has been removed does not make the provision of said unsafe appliance ...

            Your quote from The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 2016 is refering to the required protection of the circuit from a fault/overload condition.

            That is, it's talking about the protection provided by the consumer unit.

            You are still being evasive on why you want this...

            Yes you do by making the complaint to the company, they then have x number of weeks to deal with it to your satisfaction, when the x weeks have passed you go to the ombudsman. The system does work. You do realise that everytime a complaint goes to the ombudsman they are charged? It was £500 but may...

            Apologies. As previously stated, I do not require any further assistance on the technical aspect of the installation. I mentioned the 4mm requirement in a previous post.

            The query is which regulations would be relevant regarding the provision of an unsafe appliance. The title should have...
