Frequently Asked Questions regarding a
Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report

It is now a legal requirement for Landlords (Domestic and Commercial) to have the installation inspected and tested at least every five years or when occupancy changes.

It is recommended that private properties get an EICR every 10 years and it is now mandatory that Landlords have the installation inspected and tested at least every five years – and more often if the most recent safety report requires it.

An NICEIC accredited at approved contractor level, or approved by another electrical regulatory body at a similar or higher level - you can check this on the Electrical Safety Register.

The electrician will make a visual assessment, and then carry out a series of checks on your electrical systems. Any ‘code one’ problems, ie problems that are immediately dangerous, they will need to fix those there and then or at least make them safe. Any ‘code two’ problems that are potentially dangerous will be noted and a quote provided to fix them at the end of the process, and any ‘code threes” (Issues not deemed unsafe) will again be noted and quoted for. 

Each property is different but the electrician needs to check each area thoroughly so you should expect them to be there for a significant period of time. A visual check alone can take up to an hour, and it can take another hour to fill out the certificate.

  1. Be aware that your electrician will need to turn the power off before working on the wiring. You will not have access to any electrical gadgets, so it may not be the best day to work from home. It might be easier to let them in and leave them to get on with it for a few hours. It is possible to put circuits back on once they’ve been tested, but it will slow down the process.
  2. Ensure your electrician has free access to all lights, sockets and light switches. This means clearing areas where they will need to work before they arrive (children’s bedrooms, lofts and offices can be tricky).
  3. Don’t expect your electrician to issue you with a quote for remedial works immediately. It will take approximately 48 hours to process the data from the check itself before they can do this. It can take longer, particularly if you need extensive remedial works, which require a further visit from your electrician to discuss options before they can issue a quote.

You have a duty of care to your tenant and must ensure that the installation is safe when they enter the property and is maintained throughout their tenure.

The Landlords and Tenants Act (1985) requires that the electrical installation in a rented property is:

  • safe when a tenancy begins and
  • maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy.
  • We recommend that in order to comply with this Act, you get a registered electrician to carry out an Electrical Condition Report (EICR) on any property you intend to let before getting tenants in. This will certify whether the electrics are safe and tell you if anything needs upgrading.

We accept only  CARD payments AND NO CASH payment

Where a report rates the electrics as ‘unsatisfactory’, the regulations require the landlord to undertake further investigative or remedial work by a qualified person within 28 days, or sooner if specified in the report. 

Unsatisfactory codes shown on the EICR report can include: 

  • C1 Danger present, risk of injury, immediate remedial action required 
  • C2 Potentially Dangerous, urgent remedial action required 
  • F1 Further investigation required
