I am a Landlord, how often should I have an inspection carried out in my property?
If you own an HMO, you have a legal obligation to have a Periodic inspection Test (PIR) carried out on your property every five years.
If your property is not an HMO, then you are not legally obliged to get your installation tested on a periodic basis. However, we recommend that you have a full PIR carried out every five years or on change of tenancy – whichever comes first.
Our guidance is based on legal obligations set out in The Landlords and Tenant Act (1985).
