Electrical Safety

Why is a electrical safety check needed?

To keep you, your family and your home stay safe, we need to ensure your electrical wiring and fittings are working properly. 10% of house fires are caused by electrical problems (wiring, cabling or plugs), so we need to make sure the electrics within your home are working properly.

We’re required by law to carry out electrical safety checks for you. When you sign your tenancy agreement, you agree to allow access for these checks. 

We’ll send you a letter with your appointment date and time. The appointment will only take around 2 – 3 hours to complete, plus extra time for any repairs needed.


If you need to re-arrange your appointment, please call us on 01282 686 300 or email us within the next 5 days to let us know.

Missing your appointments can lead to:

  • Loss of power
  • Being charged legal fees
  • Risking fires or electric shock
  • Losing your home

Don’t risk electrical problems. It’s quick and easy to arrange an appointment with us.
