Although in private homes it is not a legal requirement, many documents refer to the EICR as a legal requirement. During your EICR, an electrician will check the consumer unit or fuse board, and the rest of our electrical infrastructure to see if any electrical circuits or equipment has been overloaded, if there are earthing or bonding issues, if there is any defective earthing, and to check for damage or any wear and tear. See an example of an EICR in Kentish Town.
We also complete a range of other electrical services including partial and full rewires, lighting design and installation, LED lighting, and Smart Home electrics. As required by law, all of our work comes with a BS7671 certificate and we are accredited by NICEIC, so we can give you the correct certification for your records.

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.
