6 months after Pennine Ways decided to introduce mandatory electrical safety checks on all managed let property, the Government announced yesterday that they agree.

We are pleased the Government has caught up. The proposal means it will be mandatory to provide electrical safety checks of the electrical systems of let houses, which we think is a really good thing to keep tenants safe & safeguard landlords’ responsibilities too.

We did not want our tenants to be unnecessarily at risk, so if you rent any fully managed house through Pennine Ways you can be confident it has been checked by a registered electrician.
