According to the Office for National Statistics, 22 people died as a result of electrocution and fatal electrical burns in 2010, whilst even more distressingly, there was a staggering 20, 403 accidental electrical fires in homes, resulting in 48 deaths and 3, 324 injuries. This means that over twenty million individuals in the world have been exposed to dangerous cables in their home, and even more worryingly, a chunk of those people died. You use electricity in your home everyday, without even thinking. Turning on the heating, switching on lights, making dinner, watching TV, using the Internet… the list is endless. Without proper electrical installation and safe wiring maintaining, you could be at risk. Electric shocks can be fatal – and if you’re a landlord, you’re responsible.
With more electrical appliances at home, the risk of electrical accidents will rise. As a landlord, not acting on safety obligations exposes you to significant fines or even imprisonment. Across the country and in Southwater, putting your tenants at risk of serious accidents or potential death will lead to a prosecution, with a fine of up to £5, 000 or worse, 6 months imprisonment. Research suggests that almost 40% of landlords are unaware of the penalties that they could face. By law, as a landlord, you are required to ensure that your tenant’s home has a periodic inspection every five years and that all appliances are safe, with at least the CE marking. Pro Electricals in Southwater will ensure this. Your tenants – who could be a family with children – risk death or injury living in a house that hasn’t been inspected, using appliances without a CE marking and using electrical products that haven’t been installed properly. Avoid the risk and choose Pro Electricals.
