We can handle all types of NICEIC-approved testing including commercial condition reports, home buyer electrical reports, domestic EICRs and landlord electrical reports.
Fixed wire testing or Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs), formerly known as Periodic Inspection Reports (PIRs) are one of the most common types of electrical test. This test will make sure your electrical installation conforms to national safety standards and will reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded and potentially dangerous.
An EICR will also identify any potential electric shock risks, along with any defective electrical work and will highlight any lack of earthing or bonding. The resulting report will make recommendations, along with the timescale of urgency in which any remedial action needs to take place.
After an EICR has been carried out, your electrician will be estimate when the next report should take place. This will depend on a number of factors, including the use of the building and condition of the installation. We also offer EICRs in Crawley and Bayswater.
Chessington Home Buyer Electrical Reports
If the property you are thinking about buying has an old electrical installation and you have safety concerns, it is recommended that the system is tested by a qualified electrician. A surveyor will not be able to verify if the installation is safe and complies with BS7671.
If the property is old, you must have a test because electrical wiring and components can often be compromised in older buildings and may not be set up for the demands of 21st Century living and working.
According to research by the Electrical Safety First, only 37 per cent of recent home buyers checked their new house’s electrics before they made the purchase. If you book a home buyer’s electrical survey any serious electrical problems will be identified, so you can negotiate on the price of the property. It will also avoid costly and unexpected repairs further down the line and will give you important knowledge that the property is safe for use.
