Homebuyer electrical reports
Purchasing a property, especially when it is going to become your dream home, is a huge step to take. Having a homebuyer electrical report carried out before you commit to buy is a wise step to take in protecting yourself from any unexpected financial surprises later down the line.
If you purchase a house that turns out to have inadequate electrics, you might end up needing to have a complete rewire or new consumer unit installed, which could turn out to be a costly and disruptive process.
This type of electrical report is also known as an EICR, which stands for Electrical Installation Condition Report. This process involves a complete appraisal of the entire electrical system that must be carried out by a qualified, expert professional. It will highlight any causes for concern and give you a clear view of any costs you can expect in the future.
