TICKETS HAVE ARRIVED!!!

The past year has flown by, we have experienced our busiest year so far and that is in part due to receiving "Best Small Contractor " of the year award in 2015. We were totally humbled and determined to continue to demonstrate that we are worthy winners of such a prestigious award.

We wish everyone nominated in this category the very best of luck..

This year we have been fortunate to be nominated for the "Best Visual Promotion" which we are delighted about.

Looking forward to meeting up with old and new a acquaintances this Friday at the select awards and good luck to everyone nominated in all categories..

Did you know that the maximum fine applied if you don't have a valid EICR in a rental property is £1000, get in touch with us today and we can advise what is required to meet current standards.

Have you had an EICR carried out yet? If not, get in touch!

Another busy Monday! All will start again tomorrow.

Thank you to all who have left us great reviews and feed back!

An EICR must be completed by a suitably competent person.  Regulation 16 of the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 requires persons to be competent to prevent danger and injury. the HSE publication HSR 25 provides guidance on this.   The landlord is responsible for ensuring the person completing an EICR is suitably competent. Using a firm that is a member of an accredited registration scheme operated by a recognised body will give some degree of confidence that this has been achieved.  In Scotland, this will usually mean that they are a registered with NICEIC or a member firm of the Electrical Contractors' Association of Scotland (SELECT).  

The Electrical Contractors' Association of Scotland (SELECT) provide online tools for finding local members.

New guidance in Scotland which takes effect from 1st December 2015, requires carbon monoxide (CO) alarms in all private rented properties. It's the landlords' personal responsibility to ensure any property they rent meets this requirement.

CO alarms must have a battery that lasts the life of the product and include an end of life audible warning. So even if you have CO alarms installed check now:

Does the existing alarm have a replaceable battery? If it does it's probably not compliant
Does the alarm have an end of life warning indication?
Even if your existing CO alarm has a sealed for life battery, what's the warranty? Does it match the life of the alarm?
