Periodic electrical inspections and electrical condition reports for landlords near Norbury
If you let a property in Norbury, Streatham, or Upper Norwood, you will need to follow new legal guidelines regarding electrical safety. From July 1, 2020, all new private tenancies in England will need to ensure that electrical installations are inspected and tested by a registered and qualified electrician. An EICR must then be completed every five years or with each change of tenancy. For existing tenancies, an EICR must be carried out by April 1, 2021.
Local authorities can impose fines of up to £30,000 for a breach of these new regulations, that also has a number of other regulations in place around EICRs, such as supplying a copy of the report to any existing tenant within 28 days of the last inspection or test, or to a new tenant before they occupy the premises.
What does our CR4 electrical certification look at?
Faulty and old wiring is a major cause of fire in the home. Obvious signs of old wiring include black-coated rubber cables, a fuse box with a wooden back and cast-iron switches, old fashioned round sockets, and sockets mounted on skirting boards.
Our electrical safety tests in Streatham will assess:
- Whether the electrical installation has deteriorated or been damaged in any way
- Ensure that the installation and any work completed adheres to IEE Wiring Regulations (BS 7671:2008)
- Protect the property from potential fires and electric shocks
- Identify areas of non-compliance
- Act as a record for insurance purposes and as a record of the installation at that time that could be used in future inspections
Do I need an EICR in Streatham, CR4?
If you have ever wondered if you need an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) in Streatham or Norbury, 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 near CR4, 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.
