How much does an EICR certificate cost regarding the safety of a landlord?
If you are a homeowner, it is your responsibility to check that the socket, light switch, wiring, and consumer board are safe. The Electrical Safety Council recommends an inspection report of electrical installations every 5 years according to the wiring conditions or whenever there’s a change of tenants.
The following electrical fixtures will be included in this report:
|Consumer Unit||Earthing and bonding|
|RCD protection||Extension leads|
|Light fittings||Signs of wear and tear|
|Light switches||Electrical cables or leads|
Unlike the installation certificate or report, the PAT test examines appliances in the home, including large white items such as a fridge freezer or dishwasher, but also small appliances such as kettles and toasters. Currently, there is no legal obligation for landlords to conduct a PAT test, but it is recommended and good practice, and usually costs from £ 1 to £ 2 per item.
Any electrical work must be self-certified by an electrician, or the local authority’s construction department must check the work upon completion. If you have chosen an electrician who is a member of a competent person scheme to work, he can self-certify and issue you with a certificate. This certificate is usually included in the quotation for any work that is required.

Why do you need the EICR Certificate?
The electrical certificate or EICR certificate is an important part of ensuring the safety of your tenants and is able to prove that you have taken the appropriate steps to do so. It is recommended that you should have a complete electrical inspection every three to five years dependent on previous inspection advice.
This examination examines the condition of the electrical wiring throughout the property and thoroughly checks the safety of the electrical installation. Once this is done and an ‘Electrical Installation Condition Report’ is processed, it will be issued electronically. It will announce whether the electrical installation is safe or if any remedial work is required to ensure it meets current safety standards. The remedial works require a separate quotation not included in the ordered EICR certificate cost.
What is an electrical safety certificate entry?
To be awarded the Electrical Safety Certificate, a full report must be conducted by a qualified electrician who will test all electrical installations in the home. During the inspection, a power loss may occur while testing the circuit.
The electrician will first inform you about this, and may ask you a number of questions, such as when were the electrical installations fitted? Or have you noticed an electrical issue? You should try to be as honest as possible while answering the questions, as this will help speed up the process.
The inspection will include the following steps:
- To check the condition of earthing and bonding
- Conduct tests on wall outlets and switches to ensure they are functioning properly, and there is no risk of electrical or shock.
- Verifying Arc Fault Circuit Interrupter (AFCI) to ensure that they are working properly.
- Checking the light fittings to ensure that they are secure and should work.
- Any old wiring such as lead, fabric, and wiring used as black-rubber should be replaced with PVC insulation.
- Testing on extension leads that are used for external electrical equipment.
- Detection of any wear, tear, or damage on any establishment throughout the house to prevent future issues.
- To seek any noticeable changes regarding the use of premises requiring an upgrade.
Make a final report on whether the electrical installations are satisfactory, for which no work should be done or unsatisfactory, which means that the property should be considered safe.

Can I complete the safety of an EICR certificate myself?

It is also necessary to hire someone who is registered with a Competent Person Scheme, as they can self-certify without inspecting a private building or calling a local council representative. To help keep your electrical application above, you should try to monitor your electrical equipment regularly to check for any faults or damage that the electrician can fix before any damage is.
What is included in the EICR Safety Certificate/Report?
When a qualified engineer is called to conduct an electrical inspection report, they will check to see if the electrical circuit or equipment is overloaded, a fire hazard or potential electric shock risk, as well as faulty electrical work. Let’s identify:
Traders will conduct various checks on the following:
- Earthing and Bonding Adequacy Test
- Fuse box suitability and whether it needs replacing
- Service of light fittings, sockets, and switches to ensure that they are up to date
- Wiring System Status

- Location suitability of all electrical fixtures
- Malfunction, damage, or wear and tear on electrical equipment
- Use of the premises and whether it has changed
After these investigations take place, the engineer will provide a complete report which will include all details of the electrical fixtures and their condition. If a non-compliance was marked as hazardous or potentially hazardous, the electrical safety of the property would be considered unsatisfactory, and replacement or repair should be implemented immediately.
