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

Vadimas deserves more than 5 Stars. He should be nominated for an exemplary professional. He contacted me to confirm the address and the time, he kept me up to date until he arrived. He was ver through and paid attention to the details. This was especially reassuring to my tenants. The tenants felt very safe by receiving such a professional service. Vadimas informed the tenants any time he was disconnecting the power. Vadimas also kept his mask on all the time.

The electrician phone and let us know when he was coming. He came on time. He was particular and meticulous in his work. Carried out all work thoroughly and left the place in "as was" condition without damaging and leaving an untidy place. Also, confirmed that he was leaving

Exceeded my expectations. Engineer arrived early, undertook the work in a professional manner. There was a small hiccup that he resolved. Completed documentation arrived in 5 days. I spoke to the admin team and they also resolved a query very quickly. I was a bit apprehensive using this service having paid in advance, but the system worked very well and I will use again.

Thank you so much to Vadimas! We needed an electrical certificate at the last minute in order to complete the sale on our house. He came at the last minute and was very professional and efficient. We received the certificate in time to exchange so cannot thank him enough! I would highly recommend him!

Electrician turned up on time and was good on site, but I have not received the EICR certificate after nearly two weeks and there is no way to contact the electrician to find out when I will receive it. Vadimas - if you are reading this please contact me on andyhatto @ hotmail.com

Vad was a proficient and expert trades. He kept us up-to-date on his arrival time, was Covid compliant with masks, gloves, etc. and, most importantly, kept the site clean and tidy as we had just completed a deep clean. Elements needing a quick change or update was done quickly and free of charge and his advise was kindly and constructive. Great trades and a really nice guy too! Hire with confidence!

The job was carried out efficiently but there is something very wrong with the scheduling. He was booked for 8pm so that it avoided working hours but he turned up mid afternoon. Very fortunately someone was in but it could have been a real let down

Gave a fail for an easy fix that I could've fixed it there and then, then asked £100 to fix it. All it was is the ceiling cover for one of the light bulb was loose.

Seems like a scam, free satisfactory certificates with 500 pounds. No clear cut advisory , says further investigation. Need to report it to police.

The EICR was issued 8 days late. If i didnt follow up no idea when would it be issued. The report had 4 no C2s one of which is talking about water bonding even though the water pipes are plastic. The remedial works will issued straight after the report was overpriced for the works involved. Not happy with the service of the particular Electrician.
