Take the hassle out of hiring a reliable tradesperson, with NAPIT

Finding trustworthy tradespeople is a stressful experience. After all, no one wants to be taken for a ride by a rogue trader. If you want to find the right person for the job, we are here to help.

Poor installation work endangers lives

We know the safety of your tenants is your top priority. Sub-standard work not only risks the integrity of your property, it also puts them in danger.

Under the Landlords and Tenants Act 1985, the property you let should be safe when your tenants move in and be maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy. In order to demonstrate this in the event that an accident occurs, it is important to be able to produce the correct certificates for notifiable work and show that appropriate, regular safety checks have been carried out to meet this duty of care.

To help you keep to the regulations, a list of Home Safety Guidance Documents has been created, including a Routine Visual & Operational guide.

Your safety is our priority

Just like you, we want to keep tenants safe. We know that the best way to achieve this is by helping you to ensure that you adhere to official guidance and building regulations.

Why chose a NAPIT registered installer?

NAPIT registered installers are:

  •  Able to complete work safely and to legally required standards
  •  Regularly assessed to ensure their ongoing competence
  •  Capable of working to the very latest health and safety regulations
  •  Able to provide you with the necessary certificates to demonstrate the regulatory compliance of the work they do. These certificates may be requested by tenants, insurance providers and solicitors and may be needed if you are looking to let or come to sell your property.

Worried about the cost?

Using a NAPIT registered installer can save you time and money by helping you avoid building control fees. They are able to provide the certificates you may need when you come to sell your home, and notify the relevant authority too.

Helping you access Government incentives

Did you know you that you can gain access to Government financial incentives such as the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), Feed-in Tariff (FiT), Energy Company Obligation (ECO), by using a NAPIT registered installer. Installers registered under our renewables and energy efficiency measures (the Microgeneration and EEM certification schemes) are also able to self-certify their own work, saving you and time and money.

Supporting our members to support you

You must make sure that any work carried out is completed under a written contract and notified to NAPIT. This ensures you have access to support and guidance should anything go wrong, including mediation, a work quality guarantee (where applicable) and advice should you wish to take further action in the event of a dispute.
