Keeping you and your home safe is a key priority for us. As part of the improvement and safety works we carry out, we look at the electrics in your home to ensure they meet current wiring regulations through our Electrical Condition Report Programme.
We carry out these inspections every five years and inform you of your appointment by letter. It is important that you let us know as soon as possible if this appointment is not convenient.
It is vital that you allow us access to your home to carry out these essential checks. By not allowing access, you are breaching the terms of your Tenancy Agreement. The Electrical Condition Report comes at no cost to you and offers peace of mind that the electrics in your home are safe and fit for continued use.
We have a team of experienced Electricians who deal with repairs such as:
- A total loss of electric power (this is categorised as an emergency repair)
- Unsafe power or lighting or other electrical fitting - including bare wires, sockets getting hot and water ingress (this is categorised as an emergency repair)
- Provide you with useful information such as: how to turn off your electricity supply in an emergency - ask one of our Operatives when we next visit your home on how to reset your trip switch
- Electrical Condition Reporting and Electrical Rewires.
If necessary, we can carry out rewires to ensure the electrics in your home meet current safety standards. Rewires involve removing all existing wiring, sockets, light switches and fittings and any other electrical items. We will then install your new wiring and fittings. Where possible, we will install the new sockets and fittings where you want them.
DIY and your Electrics
If you are thinking of making some home improvements, it is important you ask permission first. When planning any improvements you want to make, you must first consider how any work may affect your electrics.
