Professional Electrical Safety Checks & Landlord EICR Electrical Certificates
Are you think about investing in rental properties to either supplement your income or make a living?
If so, you need to ensure your properties are safe before your tenants move in, which means you need to have all your electrical installations and appliances inspected, tested and fully certified, including PAT testing.
Our SELECT & NICEIC-approved expert electricians carry out landlord electrical safety checks, issue certificates & PAT testing on behalf of private landlords & letting agents. We offer this service across the central belt of Scotland, which includes Glasgow, Edinburgh & Ayrshire, as well as the North of England.
In order to comply with the Housing Act 2006 (Scotland), landlords both in Glasgow and across Scotland must ensure their properties are safe by undergoing regular safety inspections.
This means that an electrical safety inspection of the property should be carried out by a registered electrician at least every five years, to ensure they are electrically safe. This also needs to take place before the start of any new tenancy.
Here at Interlink Lighting and Electrical, we have a team of highly-trained and fully-qualified electricians who can inspect and test every electrical installation and appliances to ensure they’re safe and in full working order.
The next time you need to obtain a landlord electrical safety certificate in Glasgow, you needn’t look any further than Interlink Lighting & Electrical.
Routine safety checks for landlords
Ensuring your electrical outlets and appliances are safe for your tenants is a legal requirement, but the benefits of landlord PAT eletrical testing in Glasgow and across Scotland extend far beyond just complying with the law.

We’ll also be able to let you know which of your electrical appliances are running efficiently, allowing you to replace outdated products with more economical ones. As a result, you can make your rental property appeal to those who want to minimise their running costs.
Landlord regulations in electrical systems
At Interlink Lighting and Electrical, we understand the regulations when it comes to landlord electrical inspections and electrical safety testing in Scotland. With rented accommodation, it is the responsibility of the landlord to provide home electrical testing to ensure all electrical installations and appliances are safe. At the start of each tenancy, they must be free of risk under the Housing Health and Safety Rating System. We provide landlord electrical inspections, to give you peace of mind before a new tenant moves into your property.
