Milton Keynes Council have recently introduced a Landlord Accreditation Scheme. The scheme aims to recognise well managed and maintained properties in the private rented sector. Landlords registered on the scheme sign up to a code of practice that includes compliance to agreed standards in safety, fire precautions, maintenance, and management.
The booklet accompanying the application form discusses the scheme requirements for Electrical installations and appliances. It specifically mentions that Portable appliance testing “is one way of making sure…all electrical appliances provided by Landlords…are working effectively…in a safe way.”
Periodic testing of the appliances in your rental properties not only shows that you are complying with the necessary legislation, but that you are taking steps to ensure the safety of your tenants.
J19 Testing can provide Landlords with a value for money appliance safety testing facility at short notice, and at times to suit you, your agent or your tenant. We provide a full report of appliances tested to match with your inventory. The report is sent both by post and electronically, and we keep a copy in our records in case yours is lost or destroyed.
J19 Testing – PAT testing for busy businesses.
