Full Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR) from £149 + VAT

At Gas Safe, we specialise in carrying out Electrical Installation Condition Reports for domestic and commercial properties across the South West. As NICEIC approved contractors, all of our work complies to the highest electrical standards.

During an EICR, we inspect the electrical installation of the property including the consumer unit, wiring, and any electrical accessories to ensure they are safe. Following the test, the engineer will issue you with an EICR certificate detailing any issues that were found.

Whilst an EICR was previously a strong recommendation, the law has now changed, meaning that as of July 2020, landlords must ensure that their property has a valid EICR in place before a tenancy starts.

If you need an EICR for your home, call us today on Bristol: 0117 964 0078, Somerset: 01934 811 566 or fill out a callback request form below and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

    What is an EICR?

    An EICR, sometimes referred to as a landlord safety test, periodic inspection report or home condition report is an inspection of the electrical installations and wiring within a property to identify any faults and ensure the wiring meets current legislation.

    Just like having your boiler serviced, an EICR ensures that your property is safe and alerts you of any faults that are present or developing.

    Throughout the inspection, several components will be checked including the consumer unit (fuse box), sockets, plugs, lights, earthing & bonding, RCD protection and electrical cables.

    How Often Do I Need an EICR?

    The recommended frequencies for an EICR vary dependant on the type of property you own:

    • Landlords – As of July 2020, landlords are legally obliged to have an EICR carried out once every 5 years by a qualified person. Landlords must provide a copy to their tenants and local authority if requested.
    • Business – Whilst there are no laws around frequencies for EICRs, as a business, you must keep your employees safe by law. For this reason, it is recommended that an EICR is carried out every 5 years or when you move premises.
    • Homeowners – If you are a homeowner, it is generally recommended that you have an EICR carried out every 10 years. Additionally, you should have an EICR carried out if you are selling the property or moving into a new property.
    • Leisure Centre – In leisure complexes, an EICR should be carried out every 3 years.

    An exception to these frequencies applies to any premises with a swimming pool where an EICR is required annually.

    EICR FAQs

    • How Long Does An EICR Take?

      This will depend on the size of your property. For a 3-bed house, an EICR can take up to 4 hours
    • Can Anyone Carry Out An EICR?

      No, an EICR must be carried out by a qualified electrician who is approved by an electrical regulatory body such as NICEIC.
    • Will You Need To Turn The Power Off?

      Yes, before working on the wiring we will need to turn the power off. We appreciate that this can be disruptive and are therefore flexible with working hours to suit your requirements.
    • Are The Rules Different For HMOs?

      No, whilst the Management of Houses in Multiple Occupation Regulations used to put duties on landlords around electrical safety, they are now covered by the new Electrical Safety Regulations meaning that they must have an EICR carried out every 5 years.
