The old Periodic Electrical Inspection Reports were updated in 2012 and are now known as Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs). All electrical systems will deteriorate over time, due to wear and tear, environmental conditions and other issues. It is recommended that installations are tested regularly to ensure safety and efficient working. If you are buying or selling a property then it is important to have an in-depth assessment of your electrics this will normally be more thorough than an inspection done by a surveyor and will save you money in the long-run, especially if there are problems with the system.

You can rest assured that your electrics are in safe hands when you come to us. We are members of government-backed TrustMark, so our work is guaranteed for six years and all of our work is also protected by £10 million public liability insurance.

What is a periodic electrical inspection or EICR and how often do I need electrical testing in South London and West London?

An EICR is a formal document that is produced following an assessment of the electrical installation within a property. An EICR should always be carried out by a professional electrician or approved contractor, so all tests are done in accordance with BS 7671.

The test will, among other things:

  • Highlight any lack of bonding and earthing
  • Look at the type of wiring and its condition
  • Identify any defective electrical work
  • Show if any electrical circuits of equipment is overloaded
  • Any changes that may lead to unsafe conditions

EICRs are valid for up to 10 years depending on circumstances, including the condition of the installation at time of the inspection. In general, most homeowners are advised to have an EICR every decade. If you own a property, which you rent out, it is important to have an EICR carried out by a qualified electrician every five years or each time new tenants move into the property.

It is also recommended that a EICR is completed when a property changes hands. If you own a caravan the electrics should be tested every three years and if your property has a swimming pool, your electrics will need to be tested once a year.

Electrical safety test certificates for landlords in West London and South London

Electrical safety certificates are an important part of ensuring you comply with your legal obligations as a landlord and that your tenants are safe. As a landlord, you are obliged to ensure all electrical appliances and installations you supply are safe.

By law, landlords must:

  • Have a EICR or periodic inspection carried out by a registered electrician every five years.
  • Ensure that all electrical installations, such as sockets and light fittings are safe when tenants move into your property and are maintained well.
  • All electrical appliances that you supply, such as kettles and cookers, have a CE rating, as minimum.

If you do not comply with these and installations or appliances are deemed unsafe, the consequences are severe and include potential criminal charges, a £5000 fine and six months imprisonment.

Case Study: EICR for a landlord in London

Landlords must meet new legal requirements for electrical safety in rental properties, including the completion of regular EICRs. Failure to comply with the latest legislation can result in hefty fines.

We recently carried out a landlord EICR in London at a private rental property.

The Results

The EICR was relatively simple as it was a residential property rather than a large commercial building. Our checks identified a few improvements needed, and the landlord asked us to complete the necessary remedial work. We ensured the full report was sent to the landlord as quickly as possible for their records, and we received a 10/10 review from the client.

Any challenges?

The landlord has a busy schedule, so we needed to complete the checks at a convenient time while also working around the tenant’s availability. We always try to be as flexible as we can with our EICR appointments, so luckily, we were able to find a time that suited all parties.
