We strongly recommend testing to improve safety and also reduce the chance of electrical fires. Once your property is tested you will receive a certificate which will either be satisfactory or unsatisfactory. If the EICR outcome is unsatifcatory you will see why it is unsatisfactory and it will be graded so you know what is priorty. We believe that prevention is better than cure.
We recommend that a rented property is tested and inspected every 5years,it is not compulsory to have a rented property tested but if you are a landlord you have a duty of care to your tenants and if there is a problem with your electrical installation you may be liable.
