IMPORTANT NOTICE - Electrical testing

Court injunction for access to carry out electrical fixed wiring test

As a landlord, we need to carry out certain health and safety checks in residents’ homes. This includes electrical testing. If we or our contractors get in touch, it’s important that you allow access for tests to be carried out – it doesn’t take long. We’ll do our best to reach you via letter and phone but, if you don’t allow access for the testing, we may need to consider applying to court for an injunction. Court is always a last resort, but it’s important that we carry out the checks for your safety and that of your neighbours. If you don’t hear from us about a test, you don’t need to worry – it just means one isn’t needed at this point.
