An Electrical Installation Condition report (EICR), sometimes referred to as "Landlords Inspection", "Fixed Wiring Test" or " Periodic Inspection Report (PIR)", is a status report of the condition of your property’s electrical system . Required by landlords and often requested house buyers/owners, it provides you with an up to date report of the condition of the electrical installation and checks to see that complies with the electrical regulations and of course gives you the peace of mind that everything is SAFE.
Using up-to-date testing equipment, we will test the whole of the electrical system within your property from the consumer unit ( fuse box ) through to the socket outlets and light fittings.
At the end of the inspection, we will give you a report, along with the schedule of the tests carried out and the test results.
The report will note any recommendations or failures, graded C1 - C3 so you can make an informed decision with regards to any improvements. Codes 1 and 2 will require remedial action as some form of danger or potential danger has been observed
As a Landlord you have a legal duty to provide a SAFE environment. Having a professional EICR conducted is the best way to prove your property is safe, and will show "due diligence" in any dispute or heavens forbid, if you should end up in court
Periodic Inspections should normally be carried out every 10 years for a private house, or 5 years if the property is rented out (sooner if known issues exist). The older the wiring in the property, the more important and inspection becomes.
Just because your car gets you to work everyday it doesn't mean it is safe, its the same with electrics, just because it works doesn't mean there isn't some hidden danger.
