Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

Electrical Inspection Report

You may be wondering how often and how you can tell if an EICR report is needed. An EICR report should be carried out within a rental property once every 5 years OR upon a change of tenancy. This is to check the fixed wiring system within your property to make sure no faults or upgrades are required to meet regulation standards. We will go through a number of tests throughout your property to make sure everything is correct. And issue you with a digital certificate showing the results within our electrical inspection report. This will detail whether any further action needs to be taken or whether the condition of your electrical systems meet the standards required. Whether you are in need of a domestic or commercial electrical installation report, we can help.
