Rental providers have certain responsibilities for gas and electrical safety. Gas and electrical appliances regularly checked and maintained.

Rental providers must have a licensed electrician check all electrical switchboards, wiring, and fittings every two years.

Section 4 of AS/NZS 3019:2022 “Electrical installations—Periodic assessment” governs the safety check.

Suppose the renter has lived there for two years without an electrical safety check. The rental company must make an electrical safety check as soon as possible. Property safety requires electrical repairs after the safety check. If so, the rental provider should hire a registered electrical contractor (REC) or REC-employed licensed electrician to repair the unit.

  • Regular Safety Checks: Every 2 years, ensure a licensed electrician conducts an electrical safety check of the entire property’s electrical installations, wiring, and fittings.
  • Providing Check Date: If requested, provide the renter a written record of the most recent safety check date.
  • Preventative Approach: Regular maintenance prevents electrical faults, boosts energy efficiency, and minimizes downtime.
  • Initial Check: If no check was conducted within the last 2 years upon renter occupancy, arrange an electrical safety check as soon as possible.
  • Repairing Identified Issues: If the safety check identifies repairs needed for electrical safety, engage a qualified professional for repairs.
