Inspection and Certification

As many of us are aware by now, landlords as well as business owners and owners of publically accessed buildings all require mandatory ongoing valid Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs).  Although an EICR is not actually required for a privately owned dwelling, any electrical installation work undertaken on such a property now or since 2005 needs to comply with part P of the Building Regulations.

Commercial properties having electrical alterations, system extensions or changes of use will require Electrical Installation Certificate/s (EICs) on completion to verify the electrical installation conforms to the current BS7671 requirements.  Privately owned dwellings having electrical alterations will also require Electrical Installation Certificate/s on completion, issued by an Approved Competent Electrician of an official body that will notify the local authorities regarding compliance to part P of the Building Regulations.

 

Being an active member of NAPIT as an Approved Electrician, all electrical installation work completed by LNE Control will be self-certified and the appropriate certificates or condition reports issued. 

 

Periodic Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs) as previously mentioned are not actually required for privately owned dwellings.  However, this could be a very useful report to obtain when selling a property having documentation gaps regarding compliance to part P of the Building Regulations.  Buyer’s solicitors can make enquiries and dwell on such matters as missing documents which is what they are always vigilant of.

 

A satisfactory Electrical Installation Condition Report will retrospectively satisfy compliance to part P of the Building Regulations and resolve any missing documentation issues.  A newly issued Condition Report will also demonstrate to any prospective buyer that the electrical installation of your property is of a safe usable condition, with no dangerous electrical hazards or fire risks requiring possibly expensive immediate attention.

 

Potential shock risks and fire hazards don’t wait until you need an Electrical Condition Report, so protect yourself, your family, your home, business premises, employees right now and pick up the phone or drop me a line on the Contact page.
