Rewiring a home can be a major job and expense. But because of the safety hazards of damaged or deteriorated wiring, it may be essential. So how do you know when rewiring is necessary?
There is no legal requirement to obtain an Electrical Installation Condition Report but they are recommended for a number of reasons. Landlords are advised to get rental properties inspected and tested every five years or at the change of tenancy. An EICR may also be suggested for prospective purchasers.
Faulty and old wiring is a major cause of house fires in the UK. Keep an eye out for these warning signs and always seek professional help from registered electricians.
Landlords have a legal obligation and duty of care to tenants to ensure that the electrical system, such as sockets and light fittings, and all appliances supplied are safe.
