HMO Smoke Alarm & Electrical Jobs Page

Granada Services can help all landlords and Estate agents to comply with all New House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) rules and regulations regarding Smoke detection and electrical safety requirements .

By law, you must ensure that:

  • All electrical installations and smoke detection in your rental property are in a safe condition at the beginning and throughout the duration of the tenancy.
  • An electrical condition report is carried out every year by a qualified electrician. This legally applies to a House in Multiple Occupation (HMO).
  • You must fit appropriate smoke and heat alarm on every story and kitchens of a rental property.
  • Ensure that your property has adequate RCD protection.

Encourage your tenants to report any common electrical problems they may notice throughout their tenancy.

Have a full electrical installation condition report carried out by a registered electrician in-between tenancy. For shorter tenancies, a visual inspection may be more appropriate.

Use a NICEIC registered electrician to carry out any electrical work in your property (even the smaller jobs), this ensures you comply with Part P of the building regulations.

Granada Services has obligation to help all clients to carefully comply with above requirements by installing appropriate devices and all necessary annual test and inspection ( Smoke and Fire detection – Electrical Safety )
