What Is An Electrical Certificate?

An electrical certificate UK is a document that proves that your home's electrical installation is safe and meets the legal requirements. It's important to get an electrical certificate when you're buying or selling a property, as it can affect the sale price.

The Different Types Of Electrical Certificates

There are four main types of electrical certificates UK: the Periodic Inspection Report (PIR), the Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), the Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) and the Minor Works Certificate (MWC).

  • The Periodic Inspection Report is carried out every five years by a qualified electrician. It assesses the condition of your electrical installation and gives it a pass or fail to rate. If your installation fails, you will need to have it repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician.
  • The Electrical Installation Condition Report is similar to the PIR, but it is carried out more frequently, usually every three years. Again, it assesses the condition of your electrical installation and gives it a pass or fail to rate. If your installation fails, you will need to have it repaired or replaced by a qualified electrician.
  • The Electrical Installation Certificate is issued after an initial assessment of your electrical installation by a qualified electrician. This certificate must be renewed every five years by another qualified electrician.
  • The Minor Works Certificate is issued after minor works have been carried out on your electrical installation by a qualified electrician. These works could include adding new sockets or lights or replacing old ones. The certificate is valid for one year from the date of issue.

When Do You Need An Electrical Certificate UK?

If you're planning any electrical work in your home, from a simple light switch installation to the full rewire, you'll need to get an electrical certificate UK from a registered electrician. This will ensure that the work is carried out safely and meets all the current building regulations.

If you're buying or selling a property, your solicitor will need to see an electrical certificate UK to satisfy the requirements of the sale.

How To Get An Electrical Certificate UK

An electrical certificate UK is required in order to prove that your home's wiring meets current safety standards. This certificate is also sometimes called an electrical safety certificate, an electrical installation certificate, or a house buyers' pack.
If you need an electrical certificate UK for your home, you should hire a registered electrician to carry out an inspection and provide you with the certificate. The cost of this inspection will vary depending on the size and complexity of your property, but it is typically around £70-£200.

Once you have received your electrical certificate UK, you should keep it in a safe place as it may be required for insurance purposes or if you ever sell your property.

How Much Does An Electrical Certificate Uk Cost?

An electrical certificate UK typically costs around £85, but this can vary depending on the size of the property and the number of circuits that need to be checked. For a more accurate quote, it's best to contact a registered electrician.

UK Electrical Certificate Regulations

In the UK, there are strict regulations surrounding electrical safety in the home. All landlords and property owners are required by law to have their electrical installations regularly inspected and tested by a qualified electrician. These inspections must be carried out at least every five years or more often if the property is considered to be at high risk of electrical hazards.

If any faults or problems are found during an inspection, the electrician will issue an Electrical Certificate of Compliance. This certificate outlines any work that needs to be carried out to bring the property up to standard. The owner then has a responsibility to make sure that this work is completed within a reasonable timeframe.

If you're buying or selling a property, it's important to check that an up-to-date Electrical Certificate of Compliance is in place. If not, you could be liable for any resulting injuries or damage. If you're renting a property, your landlord should be able to provide you with evidence of the most recent certificate.

If you have any concerns about the safety of your electrical installation, don't hesitate to contact a qualified electrician for advice.
