Electrical Test Certificates

Electrical Test Certificates in London, Essex & South East .

What are Electrical test certificates?

The official name for an electrical test certificate is Periodic inspection certificate for an electrical installation. Most people stick to the shorter version!

So what do they contain? Electrical test certificates are reports containing a wealth of technical data and information about every detail of the electrical wiring in a property. Electrical certificates also give you vital insight into the state and condition of the electrical wiring and makes clear recommendations for any remedial electrical works.

Remember that electrical test certificates can only be issued once electrical testing and inspection has taken place. No testing and inspection and no certificate probably means you won’t be able to buy, sell or let a property.

What are Electrical test certificates for?

The main function of an electrical test certificate is to prove the safety of an electrical installation, whether it is in a house, flat, office or factory. Certification can be used by the insurance industry and legal profession when dealing with fire claims, injury claims and related disputes.

Why do I need an electrical test certificate?

If you are selling or renting your property via a reputable agent you will always be asked for an electrical test certificate. Most letting agencies will refuse to let your property without one. And it is now standard practice to get electrical test certificates before proceeding with a purchase. Electrical safety certification is the most effective way to ensure that a property is safe from an electrical perspective.

What if I don’t get an electrical test certificate?

You don’t need us to explain the risks behind faulty or inappropriate electrical wiring. If your property’s electrics aren’t up to scratch, you and everyone else in it is in danger of being electrocuted or burned. Even if nobody gets hurt, building insurers take a very dim view of people who take unnecessary risks.

Are there legal requirements behind electrical test certificates?

There is currently no legal requirement for electrical test certificates for tenanted properties. But it’s only a matter of time. The letting industry already refuses properties without certification.
