EICR, basically stands for Electrical Installation Condition Report,a formal document that is issued by a professional electrician or engineer after carrying out an assessment of your electrical installation.
If you are thinking about renting your house, an EICR will be enough to prove that everything is fine, and working properly. The report must be prepared after a good assessment done by a professional who has a vast experience of checking and fixing electrical installations to avoid any inconvenience or unnecessary legal troubles related to home safety.
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), previously referred to as a Periodic Inspection Report, is Serviceteam’s most detailed electrical inspection service, comprising of an in-depth assessment of the condition and safety of a property’s electrical installation highlighting any necessary remedial work.
Homeowners should get their electrical installation tested at least every five years. Landlords are required to carry out an EICR inspection every five years, or when the occupancy changes, whichever is sooner.
