EICR: An Essential Certificate for Landlords
As mandated by law, every rented property must undergo an EICR inspection either every five years or at the start of each new tenancy, whichever is sooner.
The purpose of this regulation is to ensure that the electrical system and appliances within the property are safe for use.
Upon completion of a successful inspection, a certified EICR is issued as proof of the property’s electrical safety.
An EICR inspection not only reveals the condition of your electrical system but also identifies whether any minor or urgent repairs/upgrades are needed.
Failure to comply with these regulations can lead to severe penalties, making the EICR a vital requirement for every landlord.
The Benefits of Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)
In addition to EICR, we also recommend landlords opt for Portable Appliance Testing (PAT).
Although not a legal requirement, PAT testing provides peace of mind by confirming that all portable appliances provided as part of the tenancy are safe for use.
To ensure the utmost safety, many proactive landlords choose to carry out PAT testing annually.
Our Service is Not Just for Landlords
Apart from landlords, homeowners, home sellers, and homebuyers can also benefit from an EICR inspection.
It is advisable for homeowners to have their property inspected every ten years, while sellers and buyers may choose to have an EICR completed to verify the condition of a property’s electrical system before the sale or purchase.
EICR Procedure by TM Hughes & Son
Our qualified Electricians follow a thorough procedure for an EICR inspection.
This involves a visual inspection and testing of the electrical system to identify any damage, deterioration, or potentially dangerous faults.
Faults, if any, are categorised into three codes:
- Code C1 (dangerous and requires immediate attention)
- Code C2 (potentially hazardous if a fault occurs)
- Code C3 (not dangerous but could benefit from recommended work)
If any faults are identified, we provide an immediate quote for the necessary repairs.
Once the property has passed, an EICR Certificate is written and issued.
