It’s important to recognize that electricity is not visible, and since it typically runs through concealed wires behind walls, we often overlook the condition of our electrical installations. Over time, cables can suffer from wear and tear and become damaged, which is why it’s essential to inspect them regularly. Fortunately, our Electrical Safety Certificate service in London takes care of this for you, giving you peace of mind and allowing you to focus on renting out your property. Our assessment is comprehensive and covers whether your property adheres to the current British Standard for electrical safety (BS 7671). During the evaluation, the registered contractor will assess various aspects of the property’s electricity in line with BS 7671, identify areas for improvement to enhance safety, and use coding to rate different aspects of the electrical installation. Once the inspection is complete, you’ll receive a certificate outlining the overall condition of your property’s electricity. One of the leading causes of electrical fires in homes is faulty wiring, making an Electrical Safety Certificate every five years crucial in reducing the risk of a fire occurring in your rented property, saving lives and keeping your tenants safe.

How Long Does Landlord Electrical Safety Certificate Last?

According to BS7671, the maximum recommended timeframe for an Electrical Safety Certificate is 5 years if the property installation being inspected is in good condition and up to code. However, if the property is in fair condition and up to code, the Electrical Safety Certificate can pass anywhere from 1-5 years with C3 recommendations for improvement. The Electrical Safety Certificate can result in either a Pass (Satisfactory) or Fail (Unsatisfactory) report. If the report is a Pass (Satisfactory), the inspector can recommend a maximum pass report of 5 years for rented residential/commercial properties and 3 years for industrial properties, but only if the property installation is in good condition and up to code.

Is Landlord Electrical Safety Certificate Legal Requirement?

According to UK Law, it is mandatory to obtain an Electrical Safety Certificate before renting out a property. With our Electrical Safety Certificate London service, you can get your property’s electrics tested every 5 years during the same tenancy period and receive a new report whenever there is a change in tenancy. If you are unfamiliar with the regulations, you can read more about them. Recently, as of April 1, 2021, it became mandatory for landlords in England to provide their tenants with a valid Electrical Safety Certificate within 28 days of inspection. Failure to comply with this guideline could result in penalties of up to £30,000. The Housing Act 2004 requires the local authority where the property is located to enforce these regulations.

Who Can Perform Electrical Safety Certificate At Your Property?

To perform an Electrical Safety Certificate test, an electrician must have a Level 3 periodic qualification in testing and inspections. Those who hold this qualification are typically certified by NAPIT or NECEIC. It is worth noting that many councils and estate agents require the Electrical Safety Certificate report to be conducted by an NICEIC contractor.

We are NIECIE Contractors and we can help you get an Electrical Safety Certificate, with our Electrical Safety Certificate London service.

Why should I get Electrical Safety Certificate Done On My Property?

To ensure the safety of property occupants, a certified engineer or electrician inspects the electrical system, looking for any signs of damage, wear and tear, and deterioration. If any issues are detected, the electrician recommends corrective action to make sure the electrical system is in good working order. The Institution of Engineering and Technology’s Wiring Regulations lays out the criteria that an electrical installation must meet, including the condition of sockets, switchgear, control gear, and earthing of wires and cables.

An Electrical Safety Certificate report is helpful for identifying old electrical appliances that could be dangerous and for recording the condition of the electrical installation for future inspections. This way, landlords have proof that they have taken necessary measures to ensure the safety of their tenants (in residential properties) or customers and employees (in commercial and industrial properties) in case of an accident. Our Electrical Safety Certificate London service can provide professional assistance to ensure that your property is up to code and meets all safety requirements.

How Is Electrical Safety Certificate Test Conducted?

When you order our EICR London service, Our qualified NICEIC Electrician arrives at the property address where the inspection needs to be done.

Our Electrician needs access to all parts of property which includes, rooms, lounge, kitchen, loft(if any), bathroom and garden.

The Test is conducted in 6 simple steps

Apart from the 6 steps mentioned earlier, the electrician conducting the Electrical Safety Certificate test will also consider the property’s earthing arrangements, meter tails, condition of the consumer unit, and other general conditions of the property. The aim of this test is to identify any specific issues that could be present, such as the adequacy of bonding and earthing, the presence of residual current devices for outdoor electrical equipment, the condition of visible cables and leads, light fittings, and downlights, any damage or wear and tear on the electrical installation or equipment, the serviceability of switches, light fittings, and other electrical equipment, as well as the suitability of control gear and switchgear. This is all part of our Electrical Safety Certificate London Service.

What Will happen If Your Property Fails Landlord Electrical Safety Certificate?

If your property fails an EICR-Electrical Installation Condition certificate, On Page 3 of the report it will states reasons for failure and every reason will have a Code attached to it, the codes can be C1, C2 and C3

Please see sample below for further clarification.

What Does C1, C2, C3 & F1 Codes State

The C1 Code in an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) signals an immediate danger that needs to be addressed within 24-48 hours, while the C2 Code indicates a non-immediate danger that should be remedied within 28 days from the day the report was issued. A Fail (unsatisfactory) EICR occurs when a property has both C1 and C2 codes, and all the listed remedial actions must be completed before a Pass EICR can be obtained.

The C3 Code is a recommendation that does not result in a Fail, but rather suggests that the property’s electrics are in fair, rather than good, condition. Leaving C3 Recommendations on the EICR report may mean that the property may only receive a Pass EICR for up to five years instead of the complete five years.

Occasionally, an EICR report may contain an F1 Code, which indicates that further investigation is necessary, such as if the property has a high ZE value or if the lights in the property are flickering. Ultimately, it is up to the landlord to decide whether to carry out C3 code action/s or leave it on the report.

What Happens After You Get Landlord Electrical Safety Certificate?

Obtaining an Electrical Safety Certificate demonstrates that you have complied with electrical safety regulations and have taken sensible precautions to safeguard the wellbeing of those residing in your property. Once the examination and testing procedure is completed, the inspector will furnish you with a report that includes the inspection and testing findings, as well as the date of the next scheduled inspection and test.

It is essential to share copies of an Electrical Safety Certificate with:

  • All Existing Tenants Within 28 days after receiving test and inspection results.

  • Provide copy of the report to a new tenant/s when he/she moves in or before they occupy the premises

  • A Copy of an EICR to your estate agent

  • Within seven days of receiving a written request from the local housing authority, supply them with a copy of that report.

  • Until your next inspection and test, keep a copy of that report handy, as well as supplying a copy to the person conducting the next inspection and test.

What Report Should You Ask From The Electrician

According to regulations, the inspector must produce a report after conducting the inspection and test. Typically, an Electrical Safety Certificate or Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is utilized in the industry for this purpose.

The Electrical Safety Certificate report evaluates the safety of an electrical installation in a property. Its primary objective is to determine whether or not the installation is safe for continued use. The report will outline any safety issues identified during the inspection and provide recommendations for improvement if necessary.

Why choose a Company to carry out your Electrical Safety Certificate Testing Rather than an individual Electrician
Do I Need A New Electrical Safety Certificate Every time a New Tenants Moves In

In line with regulations, an electrical safety certificate is typically valid for five years, or less if the inspector deems necessary. This means that a new certificate would generally only need to be obtained every five years, and can be provided to any new tenants during that time period.

However, many people say an Electrical Safety Certificate is only valid for “5 years or until change of tenancy,” which is inaccurate. The interval-based nature of required tests means that a change in tenancy should not nullify an EICR.

To prevent potential issues, it is recommended to discuss the issue with the individual providing the report to ensure they are aware of the correct information.
