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

The survey and report was good; however, £50 was added onto the fee last minute because we had another meter in the utility room. It was good that Roy was flexible but it seemed like information that should be clarified upfront before providing a quote.

The electrician didn’t turn up as he couldn’t get me on the phone. Nowhere in the terms and conditions does it say that you wouldn’t turn up if not contacted. It was booked for 21 to 3 and after many calls he trend up at home 6. I was offered a partial refund which I accepted but have received nothing.

Asked Mr Roy to perform the electrical check, which he did but then went back on promises. I need to tread carefully here but after initially agreeing terms he insisted I pay half up front days before the job. First he said it was to buy materials then he said it was because he had a bad experience. I felt it was something else, maybe my appearance, only he knows? He hung up on me and now I have to pay for remedial work and for another Electrical check.

This was the worst experience I have had in my whole professional life. The technican was rude and even aggressive to certain point. He keep saying that it is to much work for him and it is taking to much time to complete. He charged me 30 pound extra for no reason after we had a confirmation for 79 pound online. Never again!

I used MyConstructor several times, and I highly highly recommend them. This one time was specific to D Roy, I would not recommend him, I was not happy with him as a whole and he failed to do what needed to be done, I felt he was dishonest as well. However MyConstructor refunded me in full and as always the level of service was amazing, this was the first issue I ever had and it was the electric engineer himself but the company. The way it was resolved shows how good of a company they are when things are smooth and when they aren’t.Sticking with them all the way. Special shout out to Oliver, he is fantastic

This electrician was initially asked to do an EICR. He suggested some remedial work for £570. He then increased his estimate to £708. As I needed to get this done for regulatory compliance I agreed. The communication from his end was appalling. I had paid through myconstructor and he was displeased because of that, he also changed the time from 11.30 to 09.00 which was not great for my tenant who has small kids. Post the appointment he reissued the certificate with another fail for a new issue arising after the new board was installed, plus the RCDs were tripping as soon as tenant turned on an appliance. I raised this was MyConstructor who advised that it would be in my interest to pay him about £150 to investigate and do any minor fixes. I reluctantly agreed. He went again for the investigation and informed me that there was an issue with one of the sockets where the boiler was. He said he would do a small fix to attach the boiler directly. I said okay do the fix. After a while the tenant called me and said he had connected the cables without any trunking and they were lying on the kitchen floor which made her feel unsafe. When I called him he demanded another £200.00 to secure the cables. I was forced to pay this amount. I then asked him for a receipt and warranty for the work 2 to 3 times on WhatsApp. He has not provided it for the past 2 weeks. He is a cow boy...please do not hire him and let him take advantage of you.
