An Electrical Installation Condition Report is a report that assesses the condition of an electrical installation. It must be carried out by a qualified electrician and it provides information on the safety and condition of the electrical installation. It is now written in law that all landlords must supply their tenants with an appropriate EICR.
The Government website has this guidance for landlords:
These new Regulations require landlords to have the electrical installations in their properties inspected and tested by a person who is qualified and competent, at an interval of at least every 5 years. Landlords have to provide a copy of the electrical safety report to their tenants, and to their local authority if requested.gov.uk
Why is it Important for Landlords to Have an EICR?
As a landlord, it is important to get an electrical installation condition report (EICR) carried out by a qualified electrician, such as the expert team of electricians here at Godiva. This is because the report will identify any potential electrical hazards in your property and help you to rectify them.
An EICR is a document that assesses the condition of an electrical installation. It will detail any defects that are found and recommend any remedial work that needs to be carried out. Getting an EICR is a legal requirement if you are renting out a property, so it is important to make sure that you have one carried out every five years or so.
If you don’t have an EICR and something goes wrong with your property’s electrics, you could be liable for any resulting damage or injuries. So without the protection of an EICR, you leave yourself open to potential prosecution.
