Did you know?
The majority of surveys you pay for on a property do not go in depth when it comes to checking the electrical layout of the property and the person checking it often does not look at the internal wiring of the property.
More to the point the person checking it, unless a qualified electrician & qualified inspector, is not even allowed to remove electrical points or consumer unit covers to inspect the wiring and systems underneath. Why take the risk of buying a property you have to spend thousands on when you can the price off the sale price of the property?
Why do I need an Electrical Intsallation Condition Report?
Legislation requires electrical installations to be maintained in a safe condition and therefore, must be periodically inspected and tested.
Routine inspections enable you to provide a safe place of business or a home. Whether it be your own home, a home you are buying/selling, or your tenants home. The process of visual and physical testing is known as Electrical Installation Condition Reporting (EICR) and is conducted on installations such as electrical wiring, circuits and connections. This testing is carried out on the entire electrical system within your home or business.
How often do I need a test?
