Frequently Asked Questions

What are your service areas?

We serve clients throughout London and anywhere within the M25.

Are your electricians certified and insured?

All our electricians are fully certified and insured to provide you with peace of mind.

How long are EICRs valid for?

An EICR is valid for UP TO 5 years or less depending on the condition of the property 

Importance of an EICR certificate

An EICR, or Electrical Inspection Condition Report (Electrical Certificate), is an in-depth inspection of your property’s electrical systems and installation. The inspection is to assess and identify any condition, deterioration, or defect which has the potential to result in danger.

In this electrical safety certification, all the electrical systems and installations present in residential or commercial buildings are thoroughly inspected.

A report released by Electric Safety First stated that about 20,000 electricity fires occur in the UK each year. Almost all of these are caused by electrical products, while the other 9% are caused by defective wiring.

It is the responsibility of landlords to ensure that their tenants are safe when it comes to using electrical equipment. This includes the proper installation and maintenance of electrical wires and appliances.

Are EICRs legally required?

Legislation has changed and states that from July 1st, 2020, privately rented properties will need a valid EICR Certificate - Electrical Certificate for all new tenancies and renewals. Business owners also require a valid EICR Electrical Certificate as they are legally responsible for the welfare of their staff, customers, or tenants, and could face prosecution should there be harm caused due to unsafe electrics.

If you are a homeowner, it is not a legal requirement to have an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR Certificate). However, it is advised that a new electrical certificate should be undertaken every five years for a privately owned property.

In addition, if you are looking to sell your property, your buyer's solicitor may well request in order for you to demonstrate regular maintenance to the property. That's why you need an Electrical Safety Certification. It is also worth noting that if you fail to maintain your electrical systems, insurance companies can use this as a reason to refuse claims.

Will my electrician need to turn off the power?

Yes, there will be a short power outage whilst each circuit is tested. To conduct a thorough inspection, the electrician needs to access various electrical components, including sockets, switches, fuse boxes, and wiring.

Working on live electrical systems can be extremely dangerous, posing risks of electric shock or electrical fires. Therefore, to ensure the safety of both the electrician and the property occupants, it is standard practice to turn off the power during an inspection.
