New legislation comes into effect from 1 December 2015 making it mandatory to carry out electrical safety inspections on privately rented properties at least every five years - The testing required will be an Electrical Installation Condition Report and PAT Testing.
The new legislation is designed to reduce the number of domestic fires caused by electrical faults. The official guidance surrounding the ruling and what it means for landlords in Scotland was officially launched on 19th February 2015 by Housing and Welfare Minister Margaret Burgess.
We will have a full blog post on Monday regarding this new legislation.
