Hi. I have four properties and yes all with recent electrical safety certificates. The solicitors have advised that the certificates do not have a 5-year valid period stating only the date that the certificate was issued/certified.
I think they are mixed up. The safety test and certificate is really only valid on the day it was issued. No one can foresee what might happen or what someone might do to the electrics.
The law requires the wiring installation be tested and certified every 5 years not that the installation is certified for 5 years just the landlord has a duty to have it inspected every 5 years.
Am I right or wrong here. I am in the process of incorporating with new mortgages thus the issue has come up.
