We can conduct several types of report for you including, home buyers, PAT, commercial EICR and landlords EICR. We can even do these for you out of normal working hours for businesses.
What is an EICR?
Think of it as an MOT for your property which can flag up potential issues within your electrical system. The correct title is an Electrical Installation Condition Report. It is a fixed wiring test which is carried out throughout the property and focuses on the safety of the occupants or those who use the property. Most Electrical Installation Condition Report testers only check the industry standard of 5 - 10% of the socket and luminary outlets in your property. These checks could be conducted by a handyman or a non-competent person or even supplied by an estate agent keen to make that sale. You can find that the inspection you paid for has items listed as limitations that you were not made aware of or even understand.
What makes our EICR’s different from others offering these reports?
We inspect approximately 90%, and to give you complete peace of mind, fixed wiring and incoming supplies are also checked to ensure the property is fully compliant with the most recent British Standards regulations. On completion, we supply a report detailing all aspects of the installation which we are happy to discuss with you or, if you prefer to read this at your leisure but have a few questions later, we can answer those when the time is right for you.
Landlord or Renter information.
If you are a landlord for one or multiple properties it is important to understand your obligations for electrical safety. HMO's must be electrically tested at least once every 5 years and checked for electrical safety and compliance to the latest wiring regulations. These checks are designed to help landlords achieve the acceptable standard and comply to local government rules. Did you know that any property that is not an HMO still needs to be tested as safe and it is the landlords obligation to prove the property is safe for anyone renting the whole property or just a single room. Most responsible landlords should already be aware of this but if you’re a renter then you may not know. It is vital as a renter to ask for information regarding the current state of electrical safety within the property, if unsure when it was last checked then simply look at the sticker on the fuse box or consumer unit. If the information shows it is past its inspection then question why with the private landlord or agency involved, they have a duty of care towards anybody staying or using the property against gas or electrical issues.
