There are many different reasons for commissioning an Electrical Report and it is advisable to speak to a qualified electrician so you can decide what type of report you need. The most common one is for a home buyer.

Why would I need a Home Buyer Electrical Report?

It is advisable to check the electrical installations are safe for you and your family before you move in. If you plan to buy a house that is less than 10 years old and has no extensions or very little DIY  the electrics are likely to be OK and an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) may be sufficient. If the house has been lived in by someone who is keen on DIY, where there have been renovations, extensions, home improvements and the property is more than 10 years old it is advisable for the electrics to be fully inspected. A qualified electrician will identify any electrical deficiencies and tell you what repairs need to be done straight away and which are less urgent.  You can then discuss any cost implications with the electrician.

What about rented properties?

If you are a landlord then you must have the electrics in your property inspected by a qualified electrician to ensure they are suitable. The inspection should be done every 5 years though the electrician may advise a re-inspection sooner. However the inspection has to be done for each new tenancy in case the previous tenant caused any damage to the wiring.

What is a qualified electrician?

It is important that electrical installation work is carried out only by those who have the correct skills and experience.  Any electrical work undertaken must follow certain rules, these rules are called Part P of building regulations. Electricity can be dangerous – Part P qualified electricians have the knowledge to avoid dangers to themselves and to others.  It is strongly recommended that you use an Electrician who is also registered with one of the government-approved schemes to carry out any electric installation work that you need doing. Their work conforms to the UK national standard, BS 7671 - Requirements for Electrical Installations.

You need to check your chosen electrician is Part P qualified and registered with one of the following:

Scotland

In Scotland, you may need to apply for a warrant from your local council before you start work. When the work has finished you will need to submit a certificate that the council accepts or rejects.

If you use an Approved Certifier, such as one from Select, they can provide you with a document to submit with your certificate saying the work complies with the standards.

The rules do not apply to all electrical jobs so if you’re unsure check with your local council.

Northern Ireland

In Northern Ireland there are currently no equivalent rules that cover electricians for domestic electrical installations. NAPIT, NICEIC and ECA have a list of electricians that should have the relevant skills and experience.

The website was easy to use and supplied contacts as requested. I chose Nigel Lewis, . Underwoods Electrical. Landlords check completed at time suitable to tenant. Report sent to me quickly. Tenant confirmed electricians who completed the check were efficient and polite.
Peter, Amesbury, Wiltshire
The website gave enough but concise information to enable me to select an appropriate contractor for the service I required and I used Simon Sharratt of APS Electrical. The communication with Simon was excellent and he was not far from the property. I wanted an electrical condition report from someone who had local knowledge. His price was very reasonable and he was efficient throughout & liaised with the Estate Agent for property access. The inspection was carried out professionally and he submitted the report to me quickly. Simon followed up his visit with a phone call to me to discuss the issues so I could make decisions based on his findings. Assuming the property purchase proceeds I will use A P S Electrical for the re-wire required to bring the electrical system up to current standard.
