Pay for an electrician to inspect the socket wiring with a meter and get a report if wiring is faulty.


Cannot see why the socket is only blowing bulbs & not a fuse. if 240V


I thnk LL is right to expect you to determine any poss fault before he gets involved, may think you are asking him to replace a light bulb.

Your problem is that you don't know why it is blowing.


Replacing bulbs is your responsibility, but electrical safety is the landlords issue - section 11(1)(b) of the 1985 Landlord and Tenant Act.


I'd have a chat with the Environmental Health Officer at your local council.
