Landlords……are you covered?

As a Landlord, it is important to act on your electrical safety obligations, or you could be exposed to significant financial risk from fines, invalidated insurance and most importantly, an increased risk of harm to tenants.  Dangerous electrics can contribute to a serious risk of fire, extreme cold, and insufficient lighting.

Height of Sockets and Switches - Electrician in Nottingham

Part M of the building regulations help with guidance on the recommended height of Switches and Sockets for new buildings to help with access and should be located so that they are easily reachable. The regulation also suggests that in habitable rooms this will be achieved by mounting the switches, sockets etc between 45cm (bottom of socket height) and 1200mm (top of switch height) above the floor level. Unless the dwelling is specifically designed for a person with limited reach, these requirements do not apply in garages and kitchens.
