Residential EICR

Residential Electrical Installation Condition Report

Residential Electrical Installation Condition Report

Our Residential Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), also referred too as fixed wire testing or periodic inspection report, is recommended for homeowners or landlords that require compliance with BS:7671.

During the test, one of our experienced electrical engineers will undertake full circuit testing, in addition to a thorough visual inspection. This service gives total peace of mind that all of the electrical installation has been checked over as thoroughly as possible.

A vital part of building maintenance, an EICR will enable you to fix any electrical problems before they have chance to cause damage or injury. On 1st June 2020, new Government regulations made it mandatory for landlords within the private rented sector to have their electrical installations tested every five years. For older installations, more frequent testing may be recommended.

Our EICR, or Periodic Inspection Report service is suitable for:

  • Homeowners
  • Landlords
  • Builders
  • Developers
  • Property managers
  • Housing associations and councils

The service involves various checks, from plug sockets to light fixtures, to ensure your internal systems are compliant and safe to use. During the examination, we will identify any issues and provide a coded observation for each. Ranging in severity, these codes reveal any concerns that the testing engineer has discovered.

In order to achieve compliance, you will need to repair any C1, C2 and FI faults immediately, but rectifying all errors, even low-risk issues, is considered best practice. As one of the signature services we offer, our specialist engineers are trained to provide comprehensive residential inspections and testing across London and the South East.

This full service typically takes between one and three hours to complete. Since full circuit testing is included within the service, our inspector will need to turn the power off within the property for the duration of the test. The circuit results and inspections will then be reviewed by our Qualifying Supervisor and once all aspects have been verified, a final report will be issued.

Remedial Works

Under the Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020, landlords have 28 days to arrange any repair work, once an inspection has been carried out. At Howard Facilities, we can complete remedial work on the very same day, to reduce the amount of bookings needed, minimise disruption for your tenants and limit costs.

We can handle the booking of all jobs with the individual tenants and offer lower rates for high volumes of properties. Plus, with fast certificate turnaround times, you can sit back and let us take care of your home and your tenants.
