Electrical Safety Certificates
Faulty and old wiring is the biggest risk of electric shock and fires in the home. With new technologies and changing wiring regulations, it’s important to get your home checked. Especially if you are purchasing a new property where you do not know the history. If you do not know the age/quality of the wiring, how well it’s been maintained or who provided electrical work, an EICR provides peace of mind.
The comprehensive electrical safety report will check wear and tear, ensuring the property meets the current wiring regulations. The tests will identify any dangerous faults in the wiring, make recommendations for improving safety and give a general opinion on the electric systems.
Landlord EICR Requirements
The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations came into effect in July 2020. It is now a legal requirement for landlords in England to ensure that electrical installations are tested by a qualified electrician. An electrical installation condition report (EICR) certificate must be issued for rental properties before the beginning of a new tenancy.
Book your EICR test
What to expect:
The EICR test will take around 2-3 hours to complete and the power will need to be off during this period.
The comprehensive report covers:
Fuse Board/Consumer Unit
Electric Heating Systems
Electric Water Heaters
You will receive a digital copy of the report via email the same day, detailing any observations and recommendations to improve safety.
If the system fails, and remedial work is required, we will provide a no-obligation quote. You have 28 days from the date of the test to get these rectified and this can be carried out by any registered electrician.
