An Electrical Installation Condition Report involves a qualified and registered electrician ‘testing’ the condition of your property’s electrics. These tests will include inspecting sockets, switches, etc. to ensure there is no discolouration or loose wiring, and a test on the electrical circuits themselves.
Your report will indicate whether the electrical installation in the property is to the required standard. If everything is ok, we will issue you with the EIC Report.
However, if you need any remedial work, the electrician will detail the list of faults and their severity. If this is the case, the test will have to be repeated, once all the issues get resolved. They then issue an up-to-date EICR will reassure you that your property is safe. It is always worth checking your home insurance policy as some insurers require a recent report.
