Services

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

Clive turned up on time and and inspected the electrics as requested. Some remedial work was required, and this was arranged for a few days later. His guys did a great job, very professional and tidy. Would happily use him again

The engineer Mr. CLIVE was very professional, punctual, and explained about the investigation in the manner I cud understand. Very helpful and courteous . The certificate came through promptly. Sound precautionary advise was offered for us to feel safe and secure. Highly recommended anytime.e to friends and families Office telephone was very efficient I give FIVE STARS to all the seven categories given above. For this I have no hesitation. I have typed red for each start to reflect this

I booked an electrical household test and whilst the two person who came to carry out the test were delightful I have been waiting 8 days now for any paperwork relating to the 20 minute visit they made to my house. I have e mail my constructor repeatedly for 6 working days with false promises of a report coming. I have now had to commission a second review by a separate company and have demanded a refund. The company used Corona virus as as excuse for the delay (obviously a reason to send two electricians into my flat not just one) but then fail to send me a report which I paid £115 for and needed urgently. I have demands that my fund are returned. I do not recommend this company.

It's been 2 weeks and I haven't received the certificate yet. It says 2-5 days on the website. My tenant complained about the intrusiveness of the engineers, none wore a mask, kept asking personal questions to the tenant and making silly comments such as how she should have another baby, or if she has a sister, and so on

The report produced had missing elements for a standard EICR according to 2 other quotes I obtained from separate Electricians. Further, the job he quoted was not itemised as he had said he would do but an all in price. Several other tests he stated he'd done were not even possible (according to the other 2 quotes). All around, i think he just wanted to make as much money as possible when telling me that it would take 2 days with 2 people which was definitely not the case.

Clive was scheduled to arrive between 12 and 2 but didnt until after 330, which the tenant wasnt pleased with. Furthermore the tenants feedback is that Clive was only in the property for 15 minutes, so we both believe a thorough test wasnt carried out, especially one that warranta the £155 fee. Lastly its been 6 working days and I still havent received my EICR certificate or any outcome reports and had to take time out of my lunch break at work to chase Clive. Not a great experience and definitely not worth the money paid.

Wouldn't recommend him to anyone. No actual measurements were made to check resistance, earth leakage general safety etc. He just talked about the latest regs and said that the flat should be brought up to the latest and greatest like a newly built flat. As electrics qualified but not got the latest bits of paper to sign off myself I know the electrics are safe for tenants. He said everything was unsafe and unsatisfactory. What a load of cobblers. Effectively he was wanting everything brought to latest 18 regs and more. Too pedantic in his attitude. He was checking a flat of some 25 years old. Dont ever use him, i wont again.
