EICR certification: Secure the safety of your property

If you’re already a landlord, or you’re venturing into the world of letting out properties, you may have heard of an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) certification. This is a report carried out to ensure that every electrical appliance and wiring in your property is safe and not faulty. You cannot see electricity. Cables are usually hidden inside the walls, and consumer units are often hidden in cupboards, so it is not surprising that homeowners can forget to check the condition of their electrical installations for damage or wear and tear. Faulty and old wiring is one of the main causes of electrical fires in properties. The team at Hale Electrics Ltd can be the one to provide your EICR for your property’s safety. Call us on 020 3086 7631.

What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report?

An EICR is a document that is formally produced by a qualified electrician. It follows an in-depth inspection of the electrical wiring and appliances in your property. If you are a landlord of a rental property, it is your responsibility to ensure the electrics are safe for your tenants, and this should be achieved through an EICR. The report ensures all electrical installations are safe to be around and don’t pose the risk of an electrical fire.

What is the aim of an EICR electrician’s certificate?

An EICR allows you to reduce the risk of a fire by checking the condition of your cables, switches, sockets, and other accessories periodically. The five main aims of a condition report are to:

  1. Identify any damage and wear and tear that might affect safety, and report it
  2. Identify any parts of the electrical installation that do not meet the IET Wiring Regulations
  3. Help find anything that may cause electric shocks and high temperatures
  4. Record the results of the inspection and testing to make sure everything in the property is safe to be used until the next inspection (following any work needed to make it safe)
  5. Provide an important record of the installation at the time of the inspection, and for inspection testing in the future

How often is a periodic inspection required?

It’s important to keep up to date with the inspection of your electrics within your property, ensuring the safety of the home’s occupants. The maintenance of your electrical system will reduce the risk of electrical fires and potential shocks. Your electrics should be inspected and tested every:

  • 10 years for an owner-occupied home
  • 5 years for a rented home
  • 3 years for a caravan
  • 1 year for a swimming pool

An EICR, otherwise known as a periodic inspection, fixed wiring test or a landlord certificate may be carried out when:

  • A property is being prepared for letting
  • Before selling a property or buying a previously occupied property

What are the dangers of skipping an EICR?

If you are late in getting your EICR, or you haven’t yet fixed the issues that were flagged during the process, you might be susceptible to these dangers. If there is faulty wiring in your property or your appliances aren’t reliable, you could be at risk of an electrical fire; approximately 89% of electrical fires are caused by unreliable appliances. Faulty wiring can also be the cause of electric shocks. If, as a landlord, you neglect to have an EICR for your property, you could face up to a £30,000 fine. This can also lead to you needing emergency electrical assistance for your property.
