Eastern Suburbs Safety Reports and Audits
In Victoria, landlords are required to undertake an electrical safety check on their rental properties every two years. This involves a thorough audit of all electrical installations and fittings in the premises. These will be inspected for visual damage before an electricity test is conducted using a portable appliance tester. The device measures electrical current going up the active wire and back through the neutral wire. If any variance is detected, it is classified as leakage and will require repair or replacement to avoid circuit failure and shock hazard to tenants.
We pride ourselves not only on our technical acumen and up-to-date knowledge of Victoria’s safety standard requirements, but also on our ability to minimise disruption to tenants while providing a superior service to landlords and property managers.
In addition to undertaking periodic safety audits to rental properties, we recommend Melbourne home owners undertake this service in their own homes every two years.
