EICR Reports

EICR Reports formerly known as the Periodic Inspection is an inspection carried out on the whole of the electrical system. It is the job of the inspector to verify the condition of the installation along with the compliance to the wiring regulations. The recommended time frame for inspection is 10 years for a domestic property and 5 years for a commercial property. It is now law that all rental property must have a satisfactory EICR for the electrical system, and failure to do so can result in heavy fines. In order to meet this requirement, the property must be inspected every 5 years or every change of tenancy.

What happens during the EICR Report?

First and foremost, our electrician will carry out a visual inspection of the entire electrical system. The primary intention of this initial inspection is to establish any clear and obvious defects such as damaged fixtures and regulation defects. The other purpose is to also establish the locations of elements such as earth bonding of services.

During the testing process itself, the integrity of cabling will be verified with the use of electrical testing equipment. The testing will check the safe working of the consumer unit by confirming that all elements of the system have been installed correctly and are suitable for the intended use.

During the majority of the testing, the power will be turned off and on which will impact internet usage and the ability to continue working from home, however we can alleviate this issue by providing a temporary power source for the internet and computer services if required.

Don’t hesitate to email or call with your inspection requirements and we will be happy to prepare a quotation.

A Landlord’s Certificate?

The EICR is sometimes referenced as a Landlord’s Certificate but there is no separately identifiable certificate for landlords and the correct document for a rented property is an EICR.

Buying Or Selling A House?

It is a common occurrence that and EICR maybe requested following the survey of a property, we can carry out an EICR and have the paperwork issued on the same day so the purchase may proceed without delay. If any defects are highlighted a quotation for the remedial works will be provided along with the certificate so that even in the instance of an unsatisfactory report the liability of the necessary works will be apparent and the sale can continue all the same.
