Appointment details


An EICR is a detailed electrical inspection of a property’s electrical installation where an in-depth report detailing any necessary remedial work is produced. During the appointment, your electrical engineer will complete an Electrical Safety Inspection to ensure that all electrical circuits on the property are in working order and are safe to use. Please note that the electrical engineer will need to disconnect the installation from the main electrical power supply for the inspection. Please note, it is your responsibility to plug appliances back in after your electrics have been tested (this includes your fridge/freezer). The entire onsite process will typically take up to two hours depending on the number of circuits on the property. Following the assessment, the Electrical Safety Certificate is emailed within 2-5 business days. 


As a landlord you are required by law to have an Electrical Installation Condition Report, this helps protect you from prosecution in the event that a tenant is harmed by faulty electrics in your property.


The frequency with which EICRs should be obtained varies depending on the kind of property. For rental properties, an EICR Testing is typically done every five years or at the start of a new tenancy. An EICR should only be done by a qualified electrician.



What does the inspection include?


  • The inspection includes the below checks if earthing and bonding is adequate
  • Whether light switches, fittings, sockets, and controls are suitable, serviceable, and protected -  replacement will be recommended if necessary
  • If earthing and bonding is adequate
  • If the wiring system is adequate and its current condition
  • If adequate identification and safety notices are available
  • The extent of any wear and tear, damage or deterioration
  • Whether there are any changes in the use of the premises which have led to, or may lead to, unsafe conditions

Appointment details


A Non-Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report is, as it states, a report rather than a certificate. It provides an assessment of the in-service condition of a commercial electrical installation against current requirements. During the appointment, the electrical engineer will complete an Electrical Safety Inspection to ensure that all electrical circuits on the property are in working order and safe to use. All lighting and lighting circuits will be assessed and a report on the findings will be logged. Typically a commercial EICR is a lot more in depth than a standard domestic report. For commercial properties, there may be operational limitations that the engineer will discuss with you first, such as shutting down any servers or phone lines that would impact a business. The engineer may ask for a sample rate which would detail what percent of sockets would be tested to begin with, and then should any faults occur with the sample size, the engineer may choose to increase the sample size (i.e, from 25% to 50%) to check for further faults. 

The entire onsite process can take from a few hours to a couple of days depending on the size of the property, especially for some larger commercial or industrial installations. Following the completion of the assessment, the Electrical Installation Condition Report is emailed within 2-5 business days. It is a legal requirement commercial properties are tested every 5 years and installations at industrial premises are tested at least every 3 years

As a landlord you are required by law to have an Electrical Installation Condition Report, this helps protect you from prosecution in the event that a tenant is harmed by faulty electrics in your property.


What you will need to do prior/during the appointment?


  • If you are not sure about the type and the quantity of the circuits please contact the engineer

  • Give permission to engineer to disconnect installation from the main electrical power supply for the inspection

Appointment details


Portable appliance testing, or PAT, involved the inspection of electrical appliances and equipment to ensure they are safe to use. During the appointment, your selected professional electrical engineer will visit the property and complete an Electrical Safety Inspection to ensure that all electrical appliances on the property are in working order and are safe to use. All electrical appliances supplied by a flexible cable with either a plug and socket or a spur box to connect it to the fixed electrical installation are considered portable appliances or portable electrical equipment (PEE) and need to be tested, regardless of their size. Typical examples of PEE include kitchen equipment, including toasters, food mixers, kettles, refrigerators, microwave ovens and office equipment such as computers, printers, scanners, and any  Extension leads are also regarded as portable appliances. The entire onsite process will typically take up to one hour depending on the number of appliances on the property. 


Although the law does not specifically state how often PAT testing should be performed, it is reasonable to at least have an inspection yearly. PAT testing is one of the most effective ways to minimize electric risks from faulty appliances.




What does the inspection include?


PAT testing includes visual checks for:

  • Damages to the flexible cable such as cuts, abrasions, trapped cables etc.
  • Damages to the plug, such as cracked case or bent pins
  • Illegal joints in the cable, such as taped joint
  • Any equipment being used in unsuitable conditions, such as wet or dusty environment
  • Any signs of overheating, such as stains or burns

Appointment details


A gas safety check (also known as gas safety inspection or a CP12) involves a Gas Safe registered engineer inspecting your gas fuelled appliances and central heating systems. The engineer will check the appliances are working properly, with the correct operating pressure. They also perform full system tests and ventilation checks to ensure regulations are met and that appliances are safe to use. The entire on-site process typically takes 45-60 minutes. Following the assessment, the Gas Safety Certificate is emailed the same day or the following business day. 


If you are a landlord, you are legally obliged to renew the Gas Safety certificate annually. Landlords must also keep a record of gas safety checks for at least two years and issue the latest certificate to existing tenants and any new tenants before they move in. If you are a homeowner, although you have not legally bound to renew the Gas Safety certificate, you are advised to do so once a year to maintain the safety of your home.



What does the inspection include?


  • Checking all gas appliances for gas tightness

  • Check burner pressure and gas rate against the manufacturers’ data plate

  • Checks on all necessary ventilation will be conducted

  • Check standing and working pressure if test points are available

  • Fuel flow will be tested to make sure combustion products are removed

  • All flame failure devices will be checked for satisfactory operation

  • Appropriate checks will be made for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets

  • Investigations for any evidence of unsafe operation will be made and reported

Excellent. Needed this done urgently and Adedayo was available the next morning. It was a Sunday and his fee wasn’t overinflated like many others on here. He was professional and helped explain a small issue which we were able to fix. I’m not sure all electricians would have taken the time to do that. Very happy with the service.

Has not put the correct address on the certificate. Certificate needs to state "Flat 1" 10 Marney Road as there are more than one flat in the building. Have telephoned and emailed on a number of occasions to get this corrected but still not done. VERY ANNOYING AND AS IT STANDS CERTIFICATE WORTHLESS

I was charged an extra £80 for a socket replacement. Initial quote was £120! I know this was not necessary as I had the electrical circuit tested just over a year ago when a new oven was installed.

Hello I spoke with the property manager who required the certificate. Their facilities team have raised some concern over the recent electrical inspection report. They haven't recorded that they tested all circuits at the fuse board, instead they have listed 3 outlets. They didn't fill out part 7, where they should say they have tested 3 circuits as agreed with whomever. Please can you advise.

Phones on the day to ask to come early. Gave the wrong result on the certificate until I had to correct him. then I had to chase for the correct certificate for days.

Adedayo was undertaking an electrical installation safety check on a tenanted property. He phoned me after finishing telling me that one of the RCDs (circuit breakers) was not operating correctly. He offered to come back and fix it for £150. When I received the certificate, three RCDs had not been tested, in that no disconnect times were recorded. I emailed him to ask which of the RCDs was faulty and to confirm the quote for the replacement. I have heard nothing since despite emailing again. The certificate is unsatisfactory as the fault is vague and does not identify the problem. I now have to have another electrical test to find out what exactly the problem is, if any! I am really very disappointed.

The original appointment was at lunchtime. He texted very late the night before to ask if 8am was ok. I said it was and would set my alarm and meet him at the property. He did not turn up until 10.30am - but hadn’t bothered to say that he wasn’t coming at 8am. I do not live at the property so this was really rude & inconvenient. He then had trouble finding the address. He seemed to be in a hurry to get onto another appointment too. I would use ‘MyConstructor’ again, but not this electrician.
