Electrical Safety

Mount Green are responsible for maintaining and testing the electrics in your home. We test and inspect all our properties and buildings at least every once every 5 years and test and inspect properties before re-letting them to new tenants.

You must inform Mount Green of any electrical issues as soon as they occur. Never carry out any electrical repairs yourself.
