Part P Installations and Testing

Part P Building Regulations were enforced in England and Wales in 2005 to reduce the number of deaths, injuries and fires caused by faulty electrical installations and to make it harder for tradesmen to leave electrical installations in an unsafe condition.

Property Services Leeds ensure all electrical wiring we install conforms to Part P (BS 7671) design, installation, inspection and testing. This applies to electrical installations in dwellings when these installations are being newly built, extended or altered.

Failure to comply with the requirement is a criminal offence so we take it very seriously! Local authorities also have the power to require the removal or alteration of work that does not comply with the Building Regulations.

The introduction of Part P put a lot of responsibility on Landlords to ensure their properties conformed and were electrically safe - Property Services Leeds can help ensure your property both complies and is safe for your tenants.
