There’s not long to go before the start of the autumn term and whether you are landlord, responsible for providing student accommodation, or are a student looking for somewhere to live, it’s important to be aware of electrical safety.

Here at Dalec we offer a range of electrical services, specially designed to help landlords in Leeds ensure their properties are safe for tenants. From electrical testing through to maintenance, repairs and appliance installations, we take care of all aspects of electrical safety for landlords.

As a landlord, it is your responsibility to ensure that your properties are safe for your tenants to live in. Electrical inspections must be carried out on a regular basis, whilst electrical testing must also be undertaken.

If you’ve never lived in a rental property before, choosing a property can seem daunting! We know that there is huge demand for high quality student accommodation in Leeds but no matter how stylish or spacious a property is, the first priority is to ensure that it is safe to live in. Reputable landlords and properties let through letting agencies will be able to provide you with evidence that a property has been properly maintained and is safe.
