An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is an important inspection that assesses the safety and condition of the electrical installation within a property. It is recommended that an EICR is carried out periodically, as specified by local regulations or based on the age and condition of the property.
In the UK, landlords are legally required to have an EICR carried out every five years for rental properties. This is to ensure that the electrical installation within the property is safe for tenants and complies with local regulations. Failure to comply with these regulations can result in fines or legal action.
Homeowners are not legally required to have an EICR carried out on their property, but it is highly recommended. This is especially true if the property is more than 10 years old, has undergone significant renovations or upgrades, or has experienced any electrical problems or faults.
Having an EICR carried out can help identify potential safety hazards such as faulty wiring, outdated electrical systems, or improperly installed electrical components. These issues can lead to electric shock or fire hazards, and addressing them can prevent dangerous situations from occurring.
In summary, an EICR is necessary to ensure the safety of occupants in a property and comply with local regulations. It is recommended that an EICR is carried out periodically to identify and address any potential hazards and maintain the value of the property.
If you are a homeowner, it is generally recommended that you get an EICR done every 10 years, or sooner if your electrical installations have been damaged or there have been significant changes made to them.
If you are a landlord, you are required by law to get an EICR done at least once every 5 years, or more frequently if your property has a high turnover of tenants or if there have been any significant changes made to the electrical installations.
It's important to note that these are just general recommendations and that the frequency with which you should get an EICR will depend on your specific circumstances. If you are unsure about how often you should get an EICR done, it's best to consult with a qualified electrician or a professional who specializes in electrical safety.
