I have tenants in a 8 year old refurbished flat 9th floor in a large black of flats. The fire extractor and parts around it caught fire. thankfully my tenant was able to put most of the fire out with the fire extinguisher I provide in all the flats.

as the fire brigade arrived and evacuated the whole block.
I have not so far had the electrics tested in this flat, believing it was not yet mandatory to do so.

Am I right in this assumption?

most of the claim will be met by the buildings insurance, but I am worried in case it is vitiated by not having the electrics pat tested up to now. your advice would be helpful.
