Portable Appliance Test(PAT)

There is no legal obligation in the case of rented residential accommodation to carry out a portable appliance test (PAT test). The Government have recently confirmed that this is the case. It is left to landlord’s discretion. Many accreditation schemes do however require it from landlords. But, should any electrical fittings or appliances within your rental property cause harm to a tenant you could be held liable.

Scotland has different regulations: As of 1st December 2015, under sections 13(4A) and 19B(4) of the Housing (Scotland) Act 2006, private landlords in Scotland will be required by law to ensure that their properties are electrically safe.
