ELECTRICAL SAFETY REPORTS FOR LANDLORDS AND HMOS
An Electrical safety report is a must on a regular basis if you rent out properties. You are responsible by law for ensuring the safety of your rented property and its contents. The tenants must not be injured or suffer damage to their property as a result of your neglect of duty. The level of duty of care by landlords has increased since April 2015. It is the same whether you rent out a single building, or houses in multiple occupation. Your legal obligation is to keep all the electrical fittings and appliances you own safe and working properly. If repairs are needed, you're expected to attend to them as a priority, using registered electrical tradespeople. However this does not include electrical appliances owned by the tenant. Renters in NSW are also legally responsible for keeping their home safe, which includes their appliances.
