An EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Report) is an assessment of the electrical installation within a property which is carried out by an experienced and qualified electrician or approved contractor. An EICR assesses the condition of existing electrical systems and installations to find out if there are any defects against the national safety standard for electrical installations. An EICR will tell you if any of your electrical circuits or equipment is overloaded which will then be deemed as unsafe and recommend the work that needs to be carried out to make it safe and in good working order.

An EICR is a formal document that is provided by a qualified electrician or approved contractor after they have assessed the condition of electrical installations and systems within a domestic or commercial property. It will identify and prioritise any deficiencies or defects against the national safety standard for electrical installations and advise you of any electrical work that needs to be carried out to ensure it remains safe.

You should contact an electrician Hersham in the event of an electrical emergency in Hersham, such as a power outage or burning odour. If you’re unsure whether your situation classifies as an electrical emergency, you should still contact Pennington’s Electrical just in case. 

If you need planned electrical work, both residential and commercial, you should call an electrician Hersham. Electricians can replace dodgy electrical work, increase safety standards in your property and even repair your boiler. If you are having any issues with your electrics, we recommend contacting an electrician.

If you own an HMO (House in Multiple Occupation), you have a legal obligation to have a periodic inspection carried out on your property every five years. If your property is not an HMO, then you are not legally obliged to get your installation tested on a periodic basis.

However, we recommend that you have a full periodic inspection carried out every five years or on change of tenancy, whichever comes first. Our guidance is based on legal obligations set out in The Landlords and Tenant Act (1985).

Faulty and old electric systems can cause fires and damage to your property and appliances so it is vital you have them assessed regularly. Fixed wiring testing accurately identifies electrical issues, their locations and any recommended actions needed. Call our electrician in Hersham for more information.

The Landlords and Tenants Act (1985) requires that the electrical installation in a rented property whether domestic or commercial has an EICR report (Electrical Installation Condition Report) to ensure that any electrical systems and wiring have been checked by a qualified and registered electrician to confirm they are in good working order and safe.

UK law requires businesses to meet specific codes and standards regarding electricity in the workplace to keep their electrical systems safe and in good working order. Many of these regulations are set by the Landlords and Tenants Act of 1985 to protect tenants of rented domestic and commercial buildings.

A commercial EICR Certificate demonstrates that you are compliant with these regulations which ensure that a building is safe for tenants and employees.

An EICR will detail anything that you must correct with your electrical system and this can include;

  • Any out of date electrical systems that are not compliant with safety regulations
  • Any defects and deterioration in your electrical equipment
  • Any damage to your electrical systems, circuits and wiring
  • Any electrical equipment which may need repair or replacement
  • Any observed damage
  • Any dangerous electrics

If you don’t have an EICR report completed a minimum of every 5 years and if you cannot prove you have had the assessment completed as you are legally required then you could be liable under UK law for any damage or injuries caused by an electrical fault. Ask our electrician in Hersham for more information.
