An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a periodic inspection report that ensures the safety of your property regarding electrical provision. Whether you require a report for your home, a business or a property you wish to rent out, it is of absolute importance that any electrical installation should always be covered by a valid and up-to-date Electrical Condition Report. Although an EICR report is not legally required, many legal documents perceive EICR reports as satisfying their requirements.
If you are renting out a property and a tenant is unfortunately electrocuted due to unsafe electrics, then there can be the possibility of prosecution. To avoid the possibility of this, an EICR report ensures that your home is fully protected, and you have peace of mind that your tenants will be safe. In many cases, the local council will require a Condition Report to licence rental properties.
If you wish to insure your property, many insurers will require an EICR report before providing you with the cover you need to ensure the safety of your workers or the public. This ensures that tenants or customers can be compensated in the event of you being taken to court for unsafe electrics.
EICR reports will usually incur a cost of £100-£250 for an average 2-3 bedroom home with relatively modern electrical wiring.
Obtaining an EICR report requires careful and complete testing from a team of experienced experts which aim to ensure that your property is completely safe, potentially saving you large amounts of money. During an EICR, the fuseboard, wiring and electrical accessories will be systematically inspected and tested for faults or where they have deviated from the conventional Wiring Standards. During testing, the following aspects of your electrical system will be thoroughly inspected and tested:
Any potential wear and tear or damage that may affect the safety of inhabitants.
An EICR is an Electrical Installation Condition Report. It is a formal document that is produced following an assessment of the electrical installation within a property. An EICR proves that any appliance provided is safe and has at least the CE marking and proves that equipment is safe to use. This must be carried out by an experienced qualified electrician or approved contractor.
An EICR allows you to see the condition of the electrical system and ensure there is no deterioration which could lead to further issues. This insures that your family, tenants and employees are safe.
We recommend that an EICR is carried out every ten years; however it should be carried out every 5 years for rented properties and businesses. This should be carried out by a registered electrician and typically will take around 3-4 hours depending on the size of the on the size of a property and the number of circuits that requiring testing.
