What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report?
Previously named Periodic Electrical Reports, an EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) is also often called a Landlord Electrical Certificate. It involves a survey to create a report into the condition of the wiring of a property – fuse board, sockets, switches and lighting. The Report outlines any aspects of the installation which require attention, and shows their priority as below:
C1– Danger present. Risk of injury. Immediate remedial action required.
C2– Potentially dangerous – urgent remedial action required.
C3 – Improvement recommended.
If any Code 1 or 2 faults are present, the overall rating will be ‘unsatisfactory’ meaning there are immediate risks to both the property and tenants. These should obviously be rectified as soon as possible to prevent injury, or legal repercussions if you intend renting the property.
We will also provide a competitive quote to fix items not up to current standard. We also provide an amended EICR or Domestic Installation Certificate following these works at no charge.
How long does an Electrical installation Condition Report in Harrogate take?
It depends on the size of the property but between one and 2 hours is usually enough to complete the report.
What do you need access to?
Our engineer will need good access to sockets, switches and the consumer unit or ‘fuse’ board. Power will need to be turned off.
Is this the same as PAT Testing?
No. PAT stands for Portable Appliance Testing and is simply a check on appliances such as kettles and lamps – anything with a plug! It doesn’t look at the wiring of the property.
