All landlords as from the 1st of July 2020 will need to proved all new tenants of their properties with an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report).

To obtain an EICR a qualified and competent person must carry out a periodic inspection of the electrical installation within the property.

A periodic inspection involves testing the entire installation from the consumer unit, checking there is adequate earthing provisions and safety by automatic disconnection from supply for each circuit.

We test that the wiring is in good condition and there is adequate protection from electric shock. We provide an EICR which demonstrates all test results performed on each circuit and a summery of the overall condition of the installation.
