Electrical Safety in Holiday Homes

Edinburgh Festival Holiday Lets

The Scottish school summer holidays will be starting very soon and before you know it Edinburgh will be full of tourists for the Edinburgh Festivals. Everybody wants to enjoy their summer holidays and nobody wants to be worrying about the safety of the holiday cottage or flat they have rented.

Holiday Let Safety

In Scotland we have a very good fire and electric safety record, but it doesn’t mean we can be complacent. If you are renting properties for short term holiday lets, then you must ensure that your flats or cottages meet current health and safety legislation. For example all upholstery must meet current fire retardant standards, you must have a smoke alarm fitted and your gas and electrical appliances must be checked regularly.

You must ensure that your guests will be safe staying in your property so that they can fully enjoy their holiday in Scotland. You do not want to be held liable for any accidents caused by your negligence.
