Do properties that are rented on a weekly basis as holiday lets need to have regular electrical inspections?

There is currently no legal requirement for the electrics in short-term holiday lets to be checked, although this is something that Electrical Safety First is campaigning for.

We recommend that owners of holiday lets should have the electrics checked every five years - to ensure the safety of the property and its tenants.
