Joel James

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

JJ Electrix has been trading for the last 4 years. From fitting downlights in domestic properties to working on big commercial contracts, we have covered every aspect of electrical installation work. All our Electricians are fully qualified and have their City and Guilds level 3 NVQ Diploma in Installing Electrotechnical Systems and hold the current addition of BS7671 wiring regulations. In addition to this our trainees will always be accompanied by a qualified electrician. The electrical work we do includes. • New installations in New Builds, Extensions and commercial premises • Full Rewires and Partial Rewires • Inspecting and Testing • EICR’s, Landlord certificates • Fault Finding and Repairs • Pat Testing • All types of Domestic work such as light fittings and extra plug sockets.


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

Joel arrived within the time given and updated me on the day as to when he would more precisely arrive. No faults to be found with his attitude, being very professional, and explained all that he had found on his survey of the electrics. Would recommend and use again.

He sent me the wrong report, I forwarded it on without reading it to the new buyers of my house. Turned out the report I sent them was terrible and for a while they thought my electrics was in a poor state. Luckily they noticed the address was wrong. He very quickly sent me the correct report though.

Gary R.


It was a good efficient service which helped us get a timely EICR report carried out. However the work suggested following our EICR report was well over priced.

I booked Joel James Electrical Services since i needed a new certificate as the house was being sold. I checked around and the price was really good so i went with it. He turned up few hours late, when he turned up he was wondering around the house like he dosent know what he was doing. Finally when he said he completed the job i spoke to him and said there was no issues and everything looked good. He told me that he will have a certificate ready for me in 2 days, but didnt send it to me for 4 days, which was really bad for me since i had to deliver the certifiate to my solicitor as the house was being sold and it was needed. Furthermore he wrote that the house was UNSATISFACTORY which completetly goes against what he told me in person, he written on the certificate that the wiring was atleast 30 years old but the house had brand new wiring done 4 years ago. I feel completely scammed, and will never use his services again. Today i got an email stating that if i pay £266 i will get the work carried out which isnt needed and finally recieve my SATISFACTORY certificate, which makes me feel unwell about this company.
