Tenants - Advice:

  • Make sure your landlord hasn’t overloaded any sockets or extension leads prior to your arrival. This could cause overheating and even a fire, so make sure you check how the appliances supplied with the property are set up when you first move in. You can use our free Socket overload calculator tool to check your sockets / extension leads.

  • Ensure that your property is fitted with a working smoke alarm.
    The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015 state properties should have:

    1. A smoke alarm on each storey of the premises on which there is a room used wholly or partly as living accommodation.
    2. A carbon monoxide alarm in any room of the premises which is used wholly or partly as living accommodation and contains a solid fuel burning combustion appliance.

  • Don’t carry out any electrical work in the property yourself, even if your landlord asks you to. Fixing electrical problems is the landlord’s responsibility and they should employ a registered electrician to undertake all electrical work.

  • Make sure your landlord or fellow housemates do not store anything on top of your microwave as they can cause it to overheat.

  • Check that all appliances supplied with the property are in proper working order and do not bear any signs of damage or age. Things to look out for include cuts or abrasions to the cable, non-standard plugs, loose parts or screws and signs of overheating or burning.

  • Reviews

    Needed a new cable between the boiler and airing cupboard which are not even on the same floor. Steve & Jamie were more than happy to explain the routing options to me, and then did a very neat job, making good when they had finished. Would I use them again? They would be my first choice.
