An EICR is one of the most common tests and is a comprehensive check of the fixed wiring of an electrical installation. It formally replaced the old Periodic Electrical Inspection Report in 2012. It is not just about checking the electrics you can see or dealing with obvious issues but fully assessing the underlying system, including the wiring, fuse board and earth bonding and checking whether it is safe and compliant with regulations. We complete EICRs throughout the South East, including in Epsom.
We can visit you at your property at a time that is convenient for you and undertake a visual inspection, alongside live and dead electrical testing. After this, we will complete a report outlining if there are any issues to be addressed. If there are any ‘code one’ problems, we will make them safe there and then or correct them completely. If there are any ‘code two’ issues, we will be able to quote to remedy them. For your peace of mind, we are members of government-backed TrustMark, so our work is guaranteed for six years. Our work is also protected by £10million public liability insurance.

EICR requirements for landlords in Strawberry Hill
Maintaining the electrical safety within a rental property is now an important responsibility for landlords. Therefore, they must get an Electrical Installation Condition Report every five years, or on change of tenancy (whichever is soonest). All electrical equipment must be kept safe and compliant at all times, including all white goods, such as washing machines and other important electrical components, such as light switches and consumer units.
If landlords do not follow these guidelines, they are exposing themselves to substantial financial risk, including fines and invalidated insurance. Aside from this, they are also putting their tenants at risk from fire or electric shocks. Landlords are required by law to ensure the electrical installation within a rental property is safe when tenants move in and is maintained in a safe condition throughout the duration. All appliances provided must have a CE marking.
Electrical Safety First, the UK charity working with all sectors of the electrical industry as well as local and central government to reduce deaths and injuries caused by electrical accident, recommends:
- Ensuring the property has adequate RCD protection
- Always using a registered electrician for doing work on a property
- Conducting regular safety checks on electrical appliances provided as part of the rental agreement

These certificates are valid on domestic properties for up to 10 years depending on different factors, including the condition of the installation at time of the inspection. It is always having a home buyers’ electrical report done before investing in a new house.
