Electrical Safety Certificates

An EICR, or Electrical Installation Condition Report (Electrical Certificate), is an inspection of your property’s electrical systems and installation. The inspection is to assess and identify any condition, deterioration or defect which has the potential to result in danger. In the electrical safety certification, all the electrical systems and installations present in residential buildings are inspected thoroughly.

It is a legal requirement for all landlords to provide copy of EICR to new and existing tenants. EICRs are required for a number of purposes including when buying or  selling a property or renewal of lease contract or may have been requested by your solicitors. Home owners can also have it carried for peace of mind to ensure electrical safety within their home.

Tests for the electrical certificate include a Visual Inspection, Dead Testing, Live Testing, and, if needed, RCD testing. To begin, our qualified electricians will inspect the property and the electrical systems in question to identify any potential issues.

Landlord Electrical Safety Certificates

From the 1st of July 2020 it is now a legal requirement for all property landlords to obtain an Electrical Safety Certificate for each property for all new tenancies in England. Existing tenancies needed to comply by April 2021.

To obtain an EICR a qualified and competent person must carry out a periodic inspection of the electrical installation within the property. The inspection involves testing the entire installation. We test that the wiring is in good condition and there is adequate protection from electric shock. We provide an EICR which demonstrates all test results performed on each circuit and a summery of the overall condition of the installation.

All You Need To Know About EICR

When it comes to safeguarding the security of their renters, the majority of landlords take initiative, which is a good contribution to the housing market. A minority, however, choose not to, endangering their renters as a result.
According to the new regulations, landlords must have an electrical installation in their property inspected and tested by a skilled professional at least once every five years. A copy of the electrical safety report must be sent to renters and, if necessary, the local authority by the landlord.
As a result, all landlords are now required to do what ethical landlords already do, which is to guarantee the safety of the electrical systems in their rental houses.

Why do you need one?

Electrical certificates are crucial for demonstrating that you have taken all necessary precautions to ensure your tenants' safety.
You should have a complete electrical check performed every three to five years, depending on the advice from prior inspections. This inspection looks at the condition of the electrical wiring on the entire property and carefully examines the installation's safety.
An "Electrical Installation Condition Report" will then be electronically issued upon completion and processing of this. It will specify whether any corrective work is necessary to make the electrical installation compliant with current safety requirements or whether it is safe.

Find a qualified and competent person to conduct the inspection.

According to the regulations, landlords must arrange for experienced and competent individuals to assess and test the electrical installations in their buildings at least once every five years. The electrical safety sector has created guidelines that explain how landlords can select a skilled and competent inspector and tester. To name a few, but not all of them:
  • Group on Electrical Safety
  • Competent Person Listed single mark and register electrical Competent person programmes have been implemented by the electrical safety sector. To prevent adding to the pressure on the sector and placing an unnecessary load on testers and inspectors, membership in these organisations won't be required.

To ensure safety, electrical installation must adhere to approved requirements. Electric shock or fire caused by problems with the fuse board, switches, or plugs could harm inhabitants and cause property damage.
20,000 houses in the UK are reportedly affected by electricity fires each year, according to a survey by Electric Safety First. 89% of fires are started by electrical items, whereas 11% are brought on by poor wiring. The majority of these occurrences might be prevented with routine electric system maintenance and inspection.
Every tenant’s safety should be guaranteed by the landlord for the duration of the tenancy. This entails ensuring that electrical equipment, wiring, and fuse boxes are installed, maintained, and functionally safe.

I think most people would agree that finding skilled tradespeople that communicate well and you feel you can trust and ask questions is a bit of a rare thing. But that’s exactly what you get with Legacy Electrical. As first time homeowners who had also inherited a bit of the previous owners poorly completed electrical upgrades we needed a full house electrical ‘MOT’ and also two specific repairs/correction jobs - issues from water damage and an incident earlier in the year. The team were great at communicating ahead of the work and flexible when we had to reschedule. You can tell when skilled people take pride in their work because they’re thorough but efficient and they didn’t mind me asking questions. All explained wonderfully. I’d highly recommend and it’s nice to know there are still businesses out there who do a great job as well as being friendly, helpful and professional. I think you can tell when people take pride in their work and know what they are doing - especially when they admit to you something is proving frustrating and they’re determined to resolve it! You’re in safe hands here.
