Electrical Installation & PAT TestingSwell Dweller Sheffield is delighted to offer Landlords a range of electrical tests at discounted rates.
PAT TestingFor PAT testing £45.00 per property for properties landlords have paid to advertise on the website and £50.00 per property for landlords not advertising their properties on the website. This includes the full schedule of results and PAT certificate for the first 20 items. £2.00 per item for any items above the initial 20. Please note there is no VAT to apply to these prices.
Domestic Periodic Inspection & Test (these are normally valid for 5 years)Full periodic electrical inspection and test report. The inspector will carry out an in-depth, thorough inspection of the whole electrical installation and/or a section or part of the electrical installation as requested, and also carry out testing of the installation with approved test meters and equipment. A comprehensive report along with a schedule of appropriate test results is then provided, along with, if necessary, a quotation for any necessary remedial or upgrade work established during the inspection and testing.
The following rates apply:
- 1, 2 bedroom properties - £100.00 per property for properties landlords have paid to advertise on the website and £110.00 per property for landlords not advertising their properties on the website
- 3 bedroom properties - £110.00 per property for properties landlords have paid to advertise on the website and £120.00 per property for landlords not advertising their properties on the website
- 4+ bedroom properties - £125.00 per property for properties landlords have paid to advertise on the website and £135.00 per property for landlords not advertising their properties on the website
Visual Inspection ReportWe also offer this service to landlords. A visual electrical survey is intended as a means of identifying defects, damage and deterioration of the installation, together with the general level of compliance with the current national safety standard BS7671. As this type of inspection does not involve any circuit testing, it cannot alone determine whether the installation is safe for continued use. A full periodic Inspection and test to BS7671 would be required to establish this. A visual inspection could however be used as an interim measure between formal periodic inspection and tests to visually identify damage or deterioration. We will also offer advice and will discuss any concerns, offering piece of mind on the condition of the electrical installation. A basic visual report is then provided along with a quotation for any necessary electrical work required. A visual inspection report whilst carrying out PAT testing can be undertaken for an additional £30.00 per property.

Landlords Gas Safety Certificates
All private landlords have to make sure the gas supply and appliances they provide to their tenants are safe. Every place that has gas must have a valid CAPITA gas safety certificate (changed from CORGI 1 April 2009). This section explains what a gas safety certificate covers, and what to do if you are having problems related to gas safety.
If the gas appliances in your home are unsafe you could be at risk of fire, explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning.
Carbon monoxide gas is invisible and has no smell. It is very poisonous and can kill quickly. If you are suffering from carbon monoxide poisoning you might have symptoms such as headaches, nausea, chest pains, sudden faintness, erratic behaviour, diarrhoea or stomach pains.
There is no legal requirement for your landlord to install carbon monoxide detectors, but you can ask your landlord to provide them. If your landlord does not provide these items, it may be worth considering fitting them yourself. You can buy them from hardware shops and they are fairly inexpensive.
What should tenants do in an emergency?If a tenant suspects there is a gas leak in your building, have them call the gas emergency number immediately on 0800 111 999. The gas supplier will disconnect the gas supply or appliance if it is unsafe or the risk is too great.
What are my tenants responsibilities?Your tenants have a legal responsibility not to use appliances that they know or suspect to be unsafe. If there is a gas leak they should try and prevent any further escapes of gas, for example, by turning off the gas supply to the accommodation. They should also report any gas leaks to the gas supplier immediately.
What responsibilities does a landlord have?All private landlords have to have a valid CORGI gas safety certificate for all the gas equipment in the accommodation they rent out. Gas safety certificates can only be given by CORGI registered gas engineers and are valid for 12 months. In order to give a gas safety certificate the engineer has to check:
- the gas supply
- gas appliances
- gas flues
If the gas engineer identifies any problems with the gas equipment, the landlord has to get a CORGI registered gas engineer to carry out the works required. The gas engineer has the power to seal off any faulty equipment or request the gas company to cut off the supply to the property.
What about new gas appliances?All new gas appliances provided since 1998 in bedrooms, bedsits, bathrooms, or shower rooms have to be 'room sealed'. This means that the gas burning system is sealed off from the room. New appliances must also be fitted by registered CORGI gas engineers.
How can tenants minimise the risks?There are things that you can do to minimise risks to you in your home, such as:
- report any faulty equipment or problems to your landlord immediately
- make sure that smoke alarms are fitted and in working order
- use carbon monoxide detectors
- plan what to do in case of fire and be aware of all escape routes
- make sure that exit routes are clear if you suspect there is a gas leak, contact the gas supplier immediately

Energy Performance Certificates
Swell Dweller Sheffield is delighted to offer domestic Energy Performance Certificates (EPC's) at a discounted rate of £50.00 per property for properties landlords have paid to advertise on the website and £55.00 per property for landlords not advertising their properties on the website, for all properties up to 6 bedrooms. Please note there is no VAT to apply to these prices.
This is excellent value compared with others providing EPC's. As a comparison the National Landlords Association are charging £69.00 per property for members and £79.00 per property for none members.
The Sunday Times recently quoted the Residential Landlords Association as suggesting that an EPC is likely to cost approximately £200. Once the law comes into effect demand will be high and an important factor to consider is possible delays to landlord's in the marketing of their properties for rent because they do not have an EPC in place. It will be a busy time for Energy Assessors and so delays in turn around of the EPC's could result in a loss of rental income.
In addition to domestic Energy Performance Certificates Swell Dweller Sheffield can now provide commercial Energy Performance certificates in Sheffield and around the UK starting from just £325.00 + VAT for a floor area up to 100 sq metres (1,076 sq ft). For other floor sizes please Contact Us
The certificates (EPCs) will have to be provided free either when (or before) any written information about the property is provided to prospective tenants or a viewing is conducted. They will not have to be provided if the landlord believes the prospective tenant is unlikely to have sufficient funds to rent the property or is not genuinely interested in renting, or the landlord is unlikely to be prepared to rent the property to the prospective tenant.
A new certificate will not be required on each let since, in the case of rental property. EPC's will be valid for 10 years.
The requirement is being introduced to comply with the EU’s Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EPBD) which applies to all property, including rented property.
