Frequently asked questions
Yes, you can. Your electrical engineer will be fully qualified to perform an EICR and Portable Appliance Test. We can arrange an EICR and PAT test within the same visit - saving you time and money.
The 2020 Regulations do not cover electrical appliances, only the fixed electrical installations. A portable appliance test (PAT) should be carried out on any electrical appliances supplied by the landlord every 12 months. Tenants are responsible for making sure that their own electrical appliances are safe.
An electrical inspection usually takes around 3 to 4 hours - not including any follow-up remedial work. The bigger the property, the longer the EICR visit typically takes. Your electrician will need to look at your fuse box, so making sure this is fully accessible beforehand will save some time during the inspection.
An EICR electrical inspection involves testing the ‘fixed’ wiring of the property, including all socket-outlets (plug sockets), light fittings and the consumer unit (or fuse box). This also includes permanently connected equipment, such as showers and extractor fans.
The inspection will:
- uncover any potential safety risks, such as loose wiring
- show if any of the electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded
- reveal any substandard electrical work to any repairs
- check the serviceability of equipment
- determine the extent of any wear and tear and damage over time
If immediate hazards are identified, your electrical engineer will highlight them in your report and outline recommended action to fix the issues.
As from the 1st April 2021, all let properties in England require an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).
