This is not to mention the cost of a fire or serious accident which could have been avoided.

Frequently asked questions

Let us answer your important questions

A: An electrical installation condition report (EICR) identifies any damage, deterioration, defects and/or conditions which may give rise to danger along with observations for which improvement is recommended.

A: Prices are as follows:

  • One bedroom flat – expect to pay from £120.
  • Two bedroom flat – expect to pay around £120 to £150.
  • Three bedroom flat – costs are between £180 and £210.
  • One to two bedroom house – inspection costs between £150 and £180.
  • Three to four bedroom house – expect to pay anything between £200 and £250.
  • Five bedroom house and larger – costs start from £300 and will depend on the size of the house.

A: From 1st June 2020, private landlords in England will be required to have the electrical installation in their rental properties checked by a qualified electrician to ensure that they are safe.
This means that:
• Electrical installations must be inspected and tested prior to the start of a new tenancy from 1st July 2020
• Checks must be carried out on any existing tenancies by 1st April 2021
These checks must then be carried out on a five yearly basis.
A copy of the most recent electrical safety condition report (EICR) must be provided to both new and retained tenants.
The landlord is responsible for making sure that the person who completes the check is suitably competent. Using an electrician or firm that is a member of an accredited registration scheme operated by a recognized body will give you the confidence that this has been achieved.

A: Insurance companies are increasingly requesting that electrical testing is carried out and evidenced on a regular basis as part of your policy agreement. Requirements such as this should be detailed in your policy, so it’s important to make sure you have thoroughly read and understood it.

Whether your insurance will pay out in the event of a claim related to an electrical incident depends on the terms of your policy and whether you have met those terms. This may include being able to prove robust processes for checking your electrics are safe – such as an EICR certificate – and that the incident was therefore unavoidable.

A: Electrical installation condition report

As a homeowner, you want the peace of mind that the electrics in your home are safe. The building regulations require your electrical installation is tested every ten years if you own your home, and every five years if you are a landlord or live in rented accommodation.

The Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), previously known as the Periodic Inspection Report, is carried out by a qualified electrician and involves the following:

  • Inspection of earthing system and supply characteristics.
  • Inspection of the consumer unit or fuse board.
  • Inspection of methods of installation and wiring.
  • Inspection of a sample of switches, sockets and other fixtures including light fittings.
  • Checking and testing the polarity of the installation.
  • Checking and testing earth continuity of circuits.
  • Checking and testing the integrity of the insulation of cabling
  • Testing protective devices to ensure they work to protect you and your family from electric shock.

A: around 3-4 hours

It is generally recommended that an EICR is carried out every ten years (five for privately rented properties) or when there is a change of occupancy in a dwelling. Typically an EICR will take around 3-4 hours to complete, depending on the size of a property and the number of circuits requiring testing.

A: As well as making sure your electrics are safe, getting an EICR trained and qualified electrician to inspect your installations could even save you money. The EICR tests systems and identifies faults. It could be, for example, that you have an overloaded circuit or a piece of equipment that is overheating and is, therefore, wasting energy and costing you money. An EICR report can make recommendations for efficiency improvements that you hadn’t thought of or didn’t realise were necessary.

There are statutory laws which require business owners to take appropriate measures to prevent accidents, including:

  • The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 which states that employers are responsible for the health and safety of their employees in the workplace
  • The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 which require precautions to be taken against the risk of death or personal injury from electricity used as part of work activities

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) regularly prosecutes businesses which fail to protect employees from electrical injuries at work. An EICR helps you fulfil your obligations by providing documented proof that your electrics have been thoroughly inspected. This can be crucial in the event of any accidents that are investigated by the HSE.
