Landlord Portable Appliance Testing Service
We work in partnership with estate agents and property management companies to carry out PAT testing. We also carry out PAT Testing for private landlords. We can contact and arrange testing with your estate agent that deals with your letting or tenant directly so that you do not need to keep calling us and your tenant to try and arrange a suitable time.

Croydon Landlords License Scheme for Landlords and HMO PAT Testing Service
As part of the Croydon private rented property license scheme all registered landlords would be advised to make sure all equipment left in the property is safe to use for your tenants
The best way to do this is to have them PAT tested

Failure to provide safely installed and maintained electrical appliances can lead to prosecution as it is a criminal offence. Possibly penalties for failing to comply are as follows:
Your property insurance may be invalidated
A fine of £5,000 per item not complying
Six months imprisonment
The Tenant may also sue you for civil damages
Possible manslaughter charges in the event of deaths
£1 an item after that
This is our standard service for landlords.
We can only test integrated appliances if there is clear access to the plug and to the back of the appliance. As these appliances are not designed to be removed.
