Faulty electric's update... in Landlords forum Posted November 22, 2012 · Report reply The world isn't a perfect place. Virtually everything in life carries risk and virtually everyone breaks the rules and the law at some time. Society will never resolve all issues and in my opinion there are far more riskier anomolies than impossing electrical checks JUST ON LANDLORDS. Lets all stop cars speeding, driving whilst drinking or on drugs, using mobile phones whilst driving. Lets make medicines available to everyone irrespective of age or locaion. Lets improve cleanliness in hospitals, povety & unemployment and lets reduce crime. We could also try to reduce terrorism, world hunger and wars........ Electrical safety IS important......but it ain't at the top of the list. Sorry...you want to make money by renting out houses / flats / rooms / houseboats...then make sure they are safe. If you want to make inroads into preventing terrorism do the courses join MI5 or the Police but you will still have safety rules to follow...believe me I know.
