Airbnb Hosts & Short Lets

Why Airbnb Properties in Edinburgh Require Certification

Recent changes in Edinburgh’s regulations now require Airbnb and short-term let property owners to obtain planning permission. Beyond that, your property must have valid certifications, including:

PAT tests for Airbnb hosts & short-term lets.

EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Reports)

Regularly updated, the EICR report checks the safety of the existing electrical installations. It reveals any deficiencies that must be addressed to meet the legal requirements.

PAT Tests (Portable Appliance Testing)

A PAT test verifies that all portable electrical appliances are safe to use. Regular testing can prevent electrical accidents.

Fire Alarm Tests

A periodic inspection of fire alarm systems is crucial to ensure they are fully operational and will perform as expected in the event of a fire.

Gas Checks

This vital inspection ensures the safety of gas appliances, fittings, and flues within your property, safeguarding against potential hazards.

Legionella Risk Assessments

In Edinburgh, landlords are required by law to carry out regular Legionella risk assessments. These evaluations ensure that water systems within rented properties are free from contamination, safeguarding tenants’ health.
