Electrical audits, reports and surveys
The most common form of electrical audit is an EICR, which stands for Electrical Installation Condition Report. There are many instances when you might need one of these, including when you're selling a property and the buyer's surveyor or mortgage lender requests one.
If you're looking to purchase a property in Berkshire, it's a good idea to have the electrics checked out so that you know exactly what you're taking on. This can help you identify - and possibly avoid - any costly fixes, such as needing a new consumer unit or even a complete house rewire.
Alternatively, you might be legally obliged to have an EICR carried out at regular intervals if you are a landlord with active tenancies or you own a business.
Either way, it's important that you choose an expert, NICEIC-registered electrician so any potential problems are spotted early on, and you can work with them to implement a solution that suits both your budget and your schedule.

EICRs for landlords and businesses in Berkshire
Landlords have a legal obligation to make sure that the electrics in all their tenanted properties are completely safe. To do this, they are required to get an EICR, or an Electrical Installation Condition Report, every 5 years.
Any failure to do so will not only expose tenants to a serious risk, but can also result in a fine of up to £30,000.
Businesses have a similar duty, set out under the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974. In accordance with UK law, business owners must protect employees, members of the public and any animals that might come into contact with the business premises. They are required to do this by testing their electrics at regular intervals.
To keep up with your legal duties, avoid any fines and ensure the safety of your tenants, employees or customers, book your EICR in Berkshire today.
