By contrast in the past some Landlords adopted a cavalier attitude to their responsibilities especially gas safety where tenants died from carbon monoxide poisoning leading to the introduction of the Gas Safety(Installation & Use) Regulations applied specifically to the PRS. Electrical Safety Regulations come within Part P of the Building Regulations and apply to all properties regardless of ownership and useage which is just as well because 70% of all house fires are caused by faulty electrics....
