ELECTRICAL INSTALLATION CONDITION REPORT (EICR)

Our NIC EIC qualified electricians are specialists in inspections and testing. We are able to test all types of electrical installations from your rented 1 bed flat in Marylebone to an office block on Potters Bar and everything in between. We provide a detailed electrical safety certificate to ensure you comply with the regulations and that your property remains safe for tenants use.

During a test your electrician will check your fuse box, earthing arrangements, incoming supply, overloading of cables, damaged sockets and switches, defective electrical work, potential risks of fire and any damaged cabling. An EICR usually takes between 2-3 hours for most flats and smaller houses but this is dependant on how many circuits your fuse board has. The more circuits (breaker switches on the face of the fuse box) your fuse box has, the longer it will take.

Do i need an EICR?


This is a popular questions and one we will always bbq happy to answer. The short answers are below but if you don’t find the answer your looking for, please give our team a call to speak to a qualified electrician who will be happy to discuss your requirements.

Owner-occupied properties:


If you are a homeowner, and live in your property, you are not required by law to have an EICR. It is recommended to have a test carried out every 10 years though - a lot can happen to electrical fittings and cables in that time and its always best to be safe.

Private rental properties - Buy-to-lets:


If you own a property and have tenants occupying the premise and paying you rent, you are a landlord and you are required by law to have an EICR carried out on that property. This is a fairly new regulation, coming in to affect for all new tenanted properties from 1st July 2020 and existing tenanted properties from 1st April 2021.

If your properties electrical condition is good then your EICR can last upto 5 years, but no more. The electrician testing your property is qualified to issue your certificate and depending on the condition this can be for 1 year, 3 years or 5 years.

Commercial properties:


If you own a commercial premise and this is occupied with tenants, you will need to ensure the electrical safety if this building and this is done by carrying out an EICR. For a commercial premise the regularity of the test is dependant on the type of premise and its use.

You should also carry out a test is you suspect you have a problem with your electrics.
