EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report)
This is to establish the condition of all electrics in the building, deciding whether or not they are safe to use again, and showing any work that might need to be done.
This involves one of our qualified electricians doing a test of the condition of the property’s electrical installation.
Including; Inspecting the internal condition, testing with high quality tools.
A report is produced showing whether the installation is satisfactory or not. If the outcome of the test is unsatisfactory our electrician will produce a list of items that need to be resolved so that the installation can be considered as satisfactory.

How do you know if you need an EICR?
If your electrics are not regularly checked, this can potentially cause a risk. Over time installation with deteriorate with age.
Improperly insulated wiring could lead to electrical shots, faulty wiring can cause fires. So no matter who you are, it is important that you do regular checks on the condition of the electrics in your property.
The IET Wiring Regulations BS 7671, which sets the standard for electrical installations in the UK, recommends the following:
Business Owners- Test once every 5 years
Landlords- Test one every 5 years (or a change of tenancy)
Homeowners- Once every 10 years (if the property has a swimming pool test the electrics every year)
What are the consequences of not having an EICR?
It is not yet a legal requirement to have an up to date EICR, landlords and business owners are legally responsible for the welfare of their tenants and employees and can be punished if they are harmed due to unsafe electrics.
If you are looking at buying a house, check if the property has an up to date EICR else this can have dangerous outcomes.
