  • Electrical Certificates

    Following some electrical work at my corner shop, I have been given a Fire Alarm Commisioning Certificate and a NAPIT Periodic Report on an Electrical Installation.

    Do I as landlord retain these or should they be given to the tenant? Alternatively, should I keep the originals and the tenant be given photocopies?

    Advice would be appreciated.

    Thanks in anticipation.

    I suspect that few tenant's will even bother to ask, although they should. Keep the originals and pass on the copies.

      Thanks David,

      I would have to obtain photocopies so I don't think I will trouble. Building work still progressing ok. I hope the tenant will sign the new lease when all the building work is complete per the Court Order.

        Hi,
        I have a one bed flat that is let out at the moment. I asked an electrician to change the fusebox to a consumer unit and asked him for a cost of changing my battery smoke alarm to a main conntected one.

        What he told me is that I need two alarms, one smoke alarm and one heat alarm...

        Is this becoming 'a thing'?

        I have had a run in with a, well, I don't know what he was, to be honest! Not an electrician, not a surveyor.. his card said something like "Property Inspection and Surveys" - so had assumed he was a clerk with some of the other possible certs added...

        Sorry if this has been asked before, and sorry for posting rather than waiting to see what happens !

        I have just had my gas appliances serviced, and safety inspection carried out (for a landlords gas safety certificate - CP12).

        There was a fault which the engineer classified...

        Just for interest - I once had a (personal, not BTL) house where there was a smell of gas near the meter. Called the gas company, instructed (obviously) to turn the gas off at the meter - smell continued.

        Was told to leave the property IMMEDIATELY and they had someone there within 15 minutes....

        Don't 'think', do your own research. FB is a good place to start.

        Battery operated alarms are fine for a non-HMO unless Council Registration is poss required. Suggest LL replaces batt alarms every 3 years, as detectors deteriorate. Mains powered alarms should replaced every 10 years...

        You need a CO detector only if there is an open flue device, not only if there is not one. You always need one smoke detector per floor.

        The interlinked smoke and heat combination is current best practice for rented properties, and, if you are subject to landlord licensing, might be required...

        The electrician is quoting the wrong requirements, as per Mr Shed above.

        You need a Carbon Monoxide/Smoke detector unless there's an open fire.
        Heat detectors are a requirement in a kitchen in an HMO.

        You need to test the alarm on the first day of the tenancy and agree...

        What a load of rubbish this sparky is spinning to you!!

        A single battery operated smoke alarm on a single floor is absolutely fine.
