It is crucial for any landlord to provide a property that is up to standard for the sake of their tenant’s safety. Unfortunately, this could also mean the costly job of having the property rewired, which requires the help of a professional. So, if you are a landlord and want to learn more about how to rewire a home, keep reading!

Rewiring for landlords: Can your tenants stay during the rewiring process?

In many cases, you can learn how to rewire a home without having to evict your tenants. This is great for you as you won’t face the responsibility of rehoming anyone or lose out on rent payments. A qualified electrician can work around your current tenants but will probably ask for help to keep the timing and costs down. This will include moving furniture and carpets to access all wiring around the property.

If you communicate with your tenants and work with them, you could arrange to do the job while they are on holiday. Alternatively, you could do it in between tenancies, ensuring a quicker process. What’s more, it could work out cheaper!

Do I need to check the electrics?

There are no legal standards for getting the electrics checked, but this does not mean that it won’t be worth your while. You never know what you will find from previous tenants, including live wired from poorly inputted lighting. Even if you are unaware of this happening, you will be held liable if something were to happen to a tenant. If you know that the property is due a rewire, get it done as soon as possible to save yourself from the hassle later on.

To keep yourself safe as a landlord, hiring a domestic electrician is the best approach. If you would like to learn about our rewiring services, get in touch with CEB Electrics today.
