Electrical Inspection Condition Report (EICR)
An EICR determines if the wiring and electrics in your home are safe. It's also called the 'Landlord Safety Test' or the 'Home Buyer's Test,' and it's always done by a licenced electrician. We recommend that you undergo an EICR every ten years to ensure that your house is secure. If you rent out a home, you should get an inspection every five years, or sooner if the most recent report specifies.
In all home, commercial, and industrial buildings, an EICR (Electrical Inspection Certification Report) is now legally required as part of the landlord's duty of care. Only data discovered during an examination of all electrical systems and fittings inside the house should be used to create the report, which should always be done by licenced electricians.
Since April 20, 2021, all new and pre-existing tenants in a domestic property have been required by law to get a copy of the most recent EICR from their landlord. A £30,000 punishment might be imposed if a landlord fails to present a valid EICR. Previously, an EICR was only required every five years to ensure that all fixed electrical elements in a house were safe. This change in regulation, formally named The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020, should not be overlooked because it affects all tenancies, whether new or existing.
If you are in charge of a commercial or industrial premises, an EICR helps to protect you under the electricity at work regulations 1989 and electricity at work act 1974. In addition, the vast majority of insurance companies require an EICR in order to insure your premises.
