Reputable electricians serving Reigate and Redhill
Our team of electrical contractors can deal with every type of electrical issue, from fault finding or small electrical upgrades, through to complete rewires in Reigate.

They should be checked periodically to see if they are in a satisfactory condition. These electrical safety tests and audits should always be carried out by a qualified electrician.
We offer EICRs to all domestic and commercial customers. Whilst electrical inspections in private owner-occupied homes are not a legal obligation, it is recommended that homes are tested every 10 years, or when buying and selling.
Our customers include:

Do I need an EICR?
If you have ever wondered if you need an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report), the answer is yes. Whether you own your own home or a property, which you rent out, or you are responsible for a non-domestic property, an EICR is always necessary.
Home-owners: Whilst it may not be a legal requirement within owner-occupied homes to have an EICR, home owners should have their electrics tested regularly, to ensure they are safe to use and are functioning correctly. This will minimise the chance of electrical faults, which could lead to electric shocks or fire and even be a risk to life. EICRs are often recommended during the house buying and selling process.
Businesses: Employers are legally responsible for the health and safety of their employees under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. They are also required to safeguard staff against the risk of injury sustained from electricity used during work conditions under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989.
Landlords: Landlords have a duty of care towards their tenants under The Landlords and Tenants Act 1985, and this ensures checking the electrics within their rental properties are safe at the start of a tenancy and maintained throughout. EICRs for both landlords and businesses provide proof that they have met their legal obligations and are often required for insurance purposes.
EICR periodic inspections for all domestic and commercial properties near Chipstead (RH1)
The most common type of electrical safety test is called an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), sometimes known as a EIC domestic condition report or commercial condition report. This test used to be called a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR). On completion of the necessary testing and inspection, a report will be issued detailing observations of damage, deterioration and any other dangerous defects, as well as any non-compliances with the present day safety standard, which might cause problems or potentially be dangerous.
An EICR will reveal:
- Damage to any cabling
- Defective electrical work
- Risks of potential electric shocks
- Potential risks of fire
- Insufficient earthing
- Overloading of fixed wire circuits
This test is the only way of confirming if an installation is safe. If an accident occurs as a result of faulty electrics and an EICR has not recently been completed, then a business or landlord may be held responsible. This could lead to hefty fines and in the worst cases, imprisonment. Most insurance policies will insist on a valid EICR also.
