Quality EICRs by trusted electricians in Waterlooville
Whether you're a landlord, a business, or you're involved in the buying or selling of a home in the Waterlooville area, you'll want to ensure you're complying with legal obligations.
Under the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020, landlords with active tenancies have an obligation to have all electrical installations tested by a professional every five years. This is called an Electrical Installation Condition Report, or EICR. Failure to do so could result in a fine of up to £30,000 from your local authority.
Businesses have a similar obligation where they operate premises and have employees or members of the public present. Covered by the Health & Safety at Work Act, they must also obtain regular EICRs to ensure that everything is safe for continued work.
Finally, if you're involved in the buying or selling of a property, you'll want to ensure a smooth, quick process of obtaining all of the necessary documents. A homebuyer EICR is an entire appraisal of the existing electrical system in the property and gives the buyer a transparent view of any work that might be required.
Part of our EICRs is that we ensure that all electrical work measures up to the UK National Standard BS7671 Requirements for safe Electrical Installation.
