FAQ’s

It is the landlords responsibility to organise an EICR and to carry them out either every 5 years and at the start of each tenancy. You must be able to show proof that it has been carried out by a registered electrician. Do I need to have an EICR before selling my house? No, however, it is good practice to ensure everything is in full, working and safe order. In some cases, a periodic inspection can actually help with the sale of the house, as a buyer could argue the wiring isn’t up to date and you could then provide proof that a periodic inspection has been carried out and granted it safe.
