Electrical Inspections

Electrical Inspections Specialists for London, Essex & South East.

What are electrical inspections?

An ‘electrical inspection’ is an in depth test and inspection of the electrical wiring in a property. Health and safety are hot topics these days and electrical inspections must be carried out before electrical certificates can be issued on a building. So they’ve become a vitally important part of almost all buying and letting processes.

Who can carry out electrical inspections?

An electrical inspection can only be carried by a fully competent, qualified electrician who is up to date with the very latest developments in the UK’s stringent electrical regulations.

What are electrical inspections for?

The purpose of an electrical inspection is to establish exactly how safe – or unsafe – the electrical wiring in a property really is.

You’ll find it impossible to get hold of an electrical certificate for your property without an electrical inspection. Which is just as it should be. Because electrical wiring can be deadly, it should always be treated with great care and checked by a professional hand.

Why do I need an electrical inspection?

If you’re selling or renting you will probably be asked for an electrical certificate. Most letting agencies will not take your property on without one. If you are buying a property it is wise (as well as standard practice) to arrange an electrical inspection to ensure the property is electrically safe.

What if I don’t have an electrical inspection?

If you don’t have electrical testing and inspection carried out on your property, you could be at risk from electric shock or an electrical fire. You also risk the lives of the people who live or work in the building, from family and friends to tenants and employees.

Are there any legal requirements?

Although there’s no current legal requirement for an electrical safety certificate in tenanted properties, the letting industry won’t budge without one.
