All properties should be periodically Inspected and Tested to ensure the existing electrical installation is safe for continued service.
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is the best way to determine whether your electrical installation is safe for continued service. A full report will be issued when your property(s) are inspected and tested.
This report is like an M.O.T and will detail all aspects or your electrical installation. A list of defects and remedial works required will be issued, which will show you any areas of your electrical installation which require attention. These are coded from 1 to 3 depending of the severity of the deviation.
When purchasing a house it is now common place for a survey to indicate an Electrician is to carry out a Condition Report.
Even if the survey does not indicate this it would be a good idea to have a Condition Report carried out to ensure you are aware of any potential or existing problems that may go un-noticed.
Privately owned domestic properties are recommended to be inspected and tested every 10 years or change of occupancy to ensure that the existing electrical installation is safe for continued use.
Guidance for landlords renting a Domestic Property is to have the electrical installation in the property tested every 5 years to ensure that it is kept up to a safe standard. Due to the increased wear expected on a property rented to tenants it is imperative to ensure that any damage to any of the electrical installation is repaired as soon as possible.
