Would you like an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) for £80.00?

Completed within one hour for each of your properties?

Yes?

 

Then please close this page immediately and navigate elsewhere!

If, however, you genuinely want to ensure your tenants' safety and fulfill your legal obligations by employing a fully qualified and registered Electrical Inspector to undertake the work, please take 5 minutes to read on and then contact us to discuss our unbeatable service.

 

Why should I pay more for an EICR when I can get one for £80.00?

  • If the worst should happen, and a tenant be injured by the electrical installation at your property, you will likely find yourself defending a legal claim in court.

  • In this event, the EICR for your property will provide the key evidence.

  • More than 80% of the EICRs we see (when contacted for remedial work estimates) contain glaring mistakes, contradictions and fabrications which render them completely invalid, both as a report and as a legal document, meaning that in the event of a claim you would be unable to prove the electrical installation was in a satisfactory condition.

But the advertisement for the company offering an £80.00 EICR says they are fully qualified and will ensure I meet my legal obligations.

  • Unfortunately, in the rush to introduce the new legislation, the government has left open a loophole which allows people who do not hold a Level 3 Inspection and Testing qualification to undertake the work, meaning that significant numbers of inspections are being undertaken by people who do not have the knowledge, understanding or skills to complete the work correctly.

  • A one hour "inspection" (which should take 4 -6 hours to complete when undertaken fully and correctly) may be carried out by one of these people, but the report will not meet your legal obligations or ensure your tenants' safety.

So how do I know who to trust?

  • The Inspector who visits your property (not someone else in the company) should hold the "Level 3 Award in The Periodic Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations", and be willing to show a copy of this.

  • The Inspector who visits your property should carry out a detailed visual inspection of the installation, followed by a detailed programme of advanced testing of every circuit to establish the true status of the electical installation - this will take 4 - 6 hours.

Is this what you are offering?

  • Yes. Our Inspector holds the "Level 3 Award in The Periodic Inspection, Testing and Certification of Electrical Installations", and will be happy to show you a copy of this.

  • Yes. A full schedule of Inspection and Testing will be undertaken (by the Qualified Inspector) and a detailed 9 - 10 page report will be issued upon conclusion.

  • The Inspector will then telephone you (or meet if preferred) to discuss in detail the outcomes of the EICR.

 

How much will it cost?

As you would expect, employing a highly qualified, registered professional to produce a detailed and accurate report which is valid for up to 5 years is more expensive, but provides peace of mind and a fully legally backed outcome.

Our prices are based upon the number of Distribution Boards (fuseboxes) in the property and the number of circuits supplied.

Distribution Board 1 - £199

Each circuit in Distribution Board 1 - £10.00

(Capped at £100 maximum for up to 12 circuits)

Distribution Board 2 - £59

Each circuit in Distribution Board 2 - £10.00

(Capped at £100 maximum for up to 12 circuits)

So, for a typical 3 bedroom house with one Distribution Board and 5 circuits the price would be £249.00

"I am so pleased I found this electrician who is thoroughly professional in his work which is of the highest standard. Exceptionally courteous, he has completed the work, and more, in the time scale set out, leaving everywhere thoroughly clean and tidy. This is a tenanted property and Tim has a full knowledge of the legal obligations of a landlord under current and proposed future electricity regulations, which has been a great help. I would recommend him without hesitation."
