Check out our FAQ below.

  • What is an EICR?
    An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is like a health checkup for your home's electrical system. Just like you visit a doctor for a checkup, your home's electrical system needs one too. A qualified electrician inspects all the wiring, sockets, switches, and other electrical components to make sure they are safe and working properly. They'll note down any problems or issues they find. The EICR helps ensure your home's electrical system is in good shape and won't cause safety problems like electrical fires or shocks. It's especially important for older homes or when you're buying or selling a property to know the condition of the electrical system.
  • Do I need an EICR?
    An EICR is needed periodically for general safety, during property transactions, as part of landlord responsibilities, after significant electrical work, or in response to safety concerns. It helps ensure that the electrical system in a property is safe and up to standard. Generally, a previous report will have a recommended next test date, this is a good place to start. If you have never had the property tested it is best to get it tested right away, or if you feel you meet any of this criteria then get in touch.
  • Do I have to fix an unsatisfactory report?
    There is no standard answer that can be given as all installations and situations are different from each other. The installation has been given an unsatisfactory result as there are issues of electrical safety and a duty of care exists in law to ensure that employees or members of the public are not placed in a position of unacceptable risk. The Electrician that provided the report will be able to provide an appropriate timescale for the works.
  • I've never had an EICR, my property is fine!
    Contrary to this belief, your installation was most likely installed the same time the building was constructed. The advancement of technology and electricity uses since then have meant that the requirements for safety have also increased. With Electric cars and Solar power being so prevalent, it is a good time to check your property.
  • I've had an Unsatisfactory report, can you help?
    Yes! We are able to provide a quote for the works required on the report. However, should any additional defects be found that were missed during the initial report, these will require further attention.
