A ‘Satisfactory’ Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report Certificate will now be required to meet these new regulations. At Cre8 Electricity our experts are on hand in and around the South London area to meet these requirements.
Commercial properties need to have an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) carried out every 5 years.
New home buyers:
If you are buying a new property, we would highly recommend that you have a Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Reports (DEICR) carried out before you purchase the property. It could well save you thousands of pounds. This is because after the inspection we deliver back to you a full detailed written report, highlighting any issues and giving prices to rectify them.
Doing this before you buy, will enable you to either use it to barter off the cost of the highlighted repairs or at least go into the sale with your eyes wide open as to the condition of the electrics and the possible budget you need to allow for.
At Cre8 Electricity, we will make the process as painless as possible by dealing with the estate agents etc and arranging access and dates and times to carry out the inspection.
Yes, even if you should have this done it is recommended that this be carried out every 10 years for your own home. Only about 10 per cent of an electrical installation can be seen visually. We have special machines and a sequence of tests that can test the integrity of the cabling that you can’t see, therefore going way beyond any visual inspection.
