I am a landlord and need to get the electrics checked in my rental property. How much will it cost me?

Answered by Dave, Electrical Safety Expert

The cost for a periodic inspection on the electrical installation will understandably differ depending on the size of your property. For an average-sized property, a 2-3 bedroom house for example, you can expect to pay between £150-250. 

Checks on the installations in privately rented homes need to be carried out once every five years, so this will work out at £30-50 per year.

If the electrician quotes significantly lower than this, you should ask them to confirm what the inspection will cover. You can find out more here.
