Electrical Installation Condition Reports

The best way to know whether the electrics you are using are safe is to get a qualified electrician to carry out all the test and inspection and also provide you with a report (electrical installation condition report).

In the UK this should be carried out every 10 years for a domestic property (family homes), 5 Years on a rented property or on change of occupancy, and more often for business premises to prevent fires and ensure business continuity

If you haven’t had testing and inspecting done lately, it’s really worth getting in touch with us for a quote.  All our prices are reasonable and we promise to bit any other providers.

What does an Electrical Installation Condition Report Involve?

During an electrical inspection, we carry out both visual checks and electrical tests.
Visual checks include looking at sockets and lights to check for damage or deterioration, checking the fuse box to see if it is in good condition and complies with safety regulations, looking at wiring and earthing.

Electrical tests involve putting an electrical current into a circuit to measure the resistance of the earthing, and to check the insulation of the wiring, we also check if the wires are the right way around (polarity) and if the RCD (Trip Switch) operates within the correct time and specifications.

We provide a full written PDF test report detailing our findings and this can be provided to your insurer and tenants if they require.

If we find anything that isn’t safe we will take photos which will be attached to the report so you know exactly what the problems are and we will provide a free itemised quote for fixing them.

How often should I get my electrics tested?

In a normal house, you should have them tested every 10 years.
In a rental property, you should have an electrical inspection every 5 years or on change of occupancy. This is now a legal requirement as of 1st June 2020.
A property should also ideally be tested before being sold so that the buyers know the condition of the electrics.
