If you own a rented property, it’s essential that you understand your legal obligations. After all, any electrical issues that happen on your watch could see you liable. To ensure you and your tenants stay protected, always keep up-to-date with your electrical landlord safety certificate. Often referred to as the landlord EICR, this records the details of your electrical inspection. Based in Swindon and Wanborough, our NICEIC-approved and local electricians undertake these checks to ensure full compliance with government legislation.
Short for Electrical Installation Condition Report / Landlord Certificate, the EICR is there to make sure all electrics within the property remain safe. As NICEIC-approved electricians, we know exactly what to look for and will hand over the necessary certificates. We can also perform any remedial work to bring your property up to a high standard.
Although safety standards continue to improve, electrical problems are still a major cause of house fires to this day. The EICR is a periodic inspection that gives your local electricians a chance to check for faults and hazards – before giving the ‘all clear’ and the required certificate. Serving Swindon, Marlborough and the neighbouring areas, our NICEIC-approved electricians look for:
Overloads and damage to electrical circuitry
Poor attempts at DIY electrical changes
Potential fire hazards and shock risks
Problems with plugs, wiring and light fixtures
Deterioration, and earthing and bonding issues
Any phased-out cables from before the 1960s
Vandalism and misuse of electrical installations
Electrical landlord safety certificates should be issued once every five years or before each new tenancy. Your local authority can demand a copy of the certificate, which you must supply within seven days. This makes it imperative that you don’t delay. It’s also recommended that homeowners call local electricians for an EICR every ten years.
If you need electrical landlord safety certificates in Swindon, Marlborough or the surrounding areas, our NICEIC-approved team be delighted to assist.
