landlord safety advantages
An EICR Certificate is issued after an assessment of an electrical installation. It notes any electrical damage, deterioration, defects, or potentially dangerous conditions.
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.
Although it is not a legal requirement to get an EICR report, it is highly advisable to do so. If you are a landlord, an Electrical Installation Condition Report will help protect you from prosecution in the event that a tenant is harmed by faulty electrics in your property. If you are a homeowner, an EICR Certificate will allow you to rest assured that your home’s electrical system meets current safety standards and that you are not putting yourself or your family in harm’s way.
The electricians at Landlord Safety Certificate are qualified to issue EICR Certificate to all kinds of properties after EICR Testing in London. When we conduct an assessment of an electrical system, we begin with a visual test. This involves looking for any visible signs of damage, deterioration, or unsafe use, such as worn out wiring insulation or overloaded plug sockets. We then conduct a series of tests to check, for instance, that all wires are connected properly, that wires are properly encased in electrical insulation material, that the arrangement of the earthing complies with regulations, and that the system is able to disconnect the power supply correctly if there is a fault.
