A Scottish Secure Tenancy Agreement gives the association the right to inspect the property or carry out repairs at reasonable times of the day given 24 hours notice. Within this same clause it states that the association has a right to seek forcible entry if refused and that all reasonable opportunities have been given. Forcible entry to make safe a gas supply is fairly well trodden ground but I have not heard of an association gaining access via the SST to carry out electrical inspection and testing.
