Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR)

Understanding EICR: Essential Electrical Safety Compliance

What is an EICR?

An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a crucial document that assesses the safety of electrical installations within a property. Created by our accredited and skilled electricians, an EICR ensures that your electrical systems meet current safety standards. As an approved contractor, UC Electrical boasts the necessary qualifications, accreditations, and experience in periodic electrical inspection and testing. Our registration with the NICEIC underscores our commitment to excellence and our profound understanding of electrical installations.

EICR Costs

The cost of an EICR can vary, influenced by the specifics of the property and the extent of the required inspections. To receive a precise quote tailored to your needs, we encourage you to contact us directly via phone or email. Our team is committed to providing transparent and fair pricing for this essential service.

EICR Frequency

For landlords, it is mandatory to have all electrical installations inspected and tested by a qualified electrician every five years. This is not just a best practice but a legal requirement to ensure the safety and compliance of your rental property. Upon completion, landlords are obligated to provide a copy of the EICR to new, existing, and prospective tenants, as well as to the local authority upon request. The report will also indicate when the next inspection is due, helping you stay on top of your electrical safety responsibilities.

Legal Requirements for EICR in England

Recent updates from the government, as of 08/06/2020, have introduced new electrical safety standards in the private rented sector in England. These new regulations mandate thorough inspection and testing for all tenancies, emphasizing the legal responsibility of landlords to ensure the electrical safety of their properties. Non-compliance with these standards can result in substantial fines, up to £30,000. UC Electrical is here to assist landlords in navigating these regulations, offering comprehensive EICR services to ensure your property remains safe, compliant, and penalty-free.
