Electricians For Safety Checks on Rental Properties

Maintaining a safe electrical environment in a tenancy is essential for landlords and property managers (rental providers). UNIVERSAL Electrical And Data Services offers comprehensive electrical safety checks and inspections for rental properties throughout Melbourne.

The Residential Tenancies Act 1997 amendments came into effect 1 January 2021 requiring landlords or rental providers to carry out an electrical safety check every 2 years. This inspection must cover all aspects of the electrical systems in the home including installations, fittings, and electrical appliances.

Electrical safety check and testing for rented properties in Melbourne must be carried out by a registered electrical contractor or licenced electrician. 

The electrical safety testing and verification check must cover the property’s electrical systems including:

  • Any appliances requiring cleaning - particularly dust build-up on cooling fan inlets and all parts of heaters.
  • Inspection of electrical appliances for damage to leads, plugs, and casings that could expose live parts or cause a fire.
  • Inspection of electrical wiring, socket outlets, and switches.

The Certificate of Electrical Safety (COES) record must include:

  • Electricians name and license number
  • Date of inspection
  • Detailed results - including any repairs needed as well as any actions taken to address the required repairs.
  • Record of the most recent electrical safety check must be provided to the renter.
