Ensure that your property is safe for your tenants
A periodic inspection entails testing the entire installation beginning with the consumer unit, ensuring adequate earthing provisions, and ensuring safety by automatically disconnecting from the power supply for each circuit.
We ensure that the wiring is in good working order and that there is adequate protection against electric shock. We provide an EICR that shows all test results for each circuit as well as a summary of the overall condition of the installation.
Our electrical engineers provide cost-effective electrical safety inspections and certificates for landlords in North London.

What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report?
Periodic inspections should only be performed by qualified and competent individuals with the necessary certifications. Able Electricians are City & Guilds qualified in Periodic Inspection and Testing. We will compare the condition of the electrics to the UK standard for electrical installation safety, BS 7671 – Requirements for Electrical Installations (IEE Wiring Regulations).
We inspect and test the entire system to ensure that all earthing and bonding is adequate for the system's use and type. All switchgear, over-current protection, and fault protection in the form of RCDs and RCBOs are tested and inspected. We test the wiring's performance by passing a test current through each cable to ensure the insulation is of adequate quality; this test may indicate the need for a complete or partial rewire. Finally, all light fixtures and power outlets are tested to meet safety requirements.
The person completing the report will detail any observed damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions, and noncompliance throughout the property and accurately record it on the certificate.
Do I have to provide an EICR to my tenant?
In order to comply with Electrical Safety Standards, all landlords must provide an EICR to each new tenant or local authority at the start of the tenancy.
You have up to 28 days to comply with the legislation; failure to do so can result in a £30,000 fine and can be enforced by your local authority.
A standard EICR is valid for five years before requiring a new certificate, which will be issued upon completion of another periodic inspection.
All existing tenancies have until April 2021 to obtain an up-to-date EICR, which will be valid for another five years.

Legally, landlords and business owners are required to conduct inspections every five (5) years, while owners of residential homes are encouraged to conduct inspections every ten (10) years.
The purpose of an EICR (also known as periodic inspection and testing of an electrical installation), is to determine, so far as is reasonably practicable, whether the installation is in a satisfactory condition for continued service.
