Electrical Installation Certificates

Electrical Installation Certificates in London, Essex & South East.

What are Electrical installation certificates?

An electrical installation certificate is also known as a ‘Periodic inspection certificate for an electrical installation’ but most people stick to the short version!

Electrical installation certificates are detailed reports that contain all the vital technical data and information about a property’s electrical wiring. The Electrical inspection testing report will also state the condition of the electrical wiring and make common sense, expert recommendations for electrical remedial work.

Last but not least, you will only be issued an electrical installation certificate after you’ve had a proper test and inspection on your property. So they’re a vital element in any property transaction, from letting and renting to buying and selling.

What is the purpose of Electrical installation certificates?

The key function of an electrical certificate is to prove the safety of an electrical installation, whether it is for a house, flat, office or factory. Most importantly of all there’s the people element. People in electrically safe houses and workplaces are protected from danger, and electricity can be horribly dangerous stuff.

Why do I need an electrical installation certificate?

Anyone selling or renting a property through a reputable agent will be asked for an electrical installation certificate. These days, with health and safety a big issue, letting agencies will refuse to handle your property without one.

Following the trend, property buyers have electrical testing and inspection carried out as a matter of course, during their investigations. Property is a big investment and electrical installation certificates deliver a valuable, trusted way to ensure that expensive property is electrically safe.

What if I don’t have an electrical installation certificate?

If you don’t have an electrical test and inspection carried out on your property, and get a legitimate, expert electrical installation certificate, you risk being electrocuted or trapped in an electrical fire. Even if nobody’s hurt, dealing with the consequences of either is devastating.

Are there any legal requirements?

With tenanted property, there’s no legal requirement for electrical installation certificates. Even so, certification is widely required in the letting industry and it is probably only a matter of time before all let properties fall into line.
