Hiring a tradesman to perform an electrical installation condition report (EICR)

It is important to make sure that the electrical installations in your property can function safely. Over time, even the most expertly installed wiring can break down, or connections may gradually become loose. To make sure that your electrical utilities are running as well as they can, it is advised that you periodically have a qualified electrician conduct an electrical installation condition report (EICR). Not only will this highlight any flaws in your system, but will also make it easier to insure, rent or sell your property.
When you need a qualified and reliable tradesman, Plentific can help you find the best one to suit you. The Plentific website can instantly generate a fully bespoke list showing the best electricians in your local area, each of which will have their own Plentific profile where you can view their qualifications, past jobs and customer reviews. Best of all, each and every job booked via Plentific is covered by the Plentific Guarantee.

What do you need to know about getting an electrical installation condition report (EICR)?

It is recommended that you periodically arrange an EICR for your property. Even if you never touch your fuse box, your utilities can still wear down or become loose over time. Poor maintenance or the presence of hazardous materials can end up causing serious unexpected electrical problems for a property. Worse yet, if a faulty electrical installation ends up causing damage or injury, you will be far more liable in the eyes of the law if you never got the system professionally checked. As a landlord, you could even be taken to court by your tenant! Not having an up to date EICR will also make insurance companies and estate agents far more cautious about your property.

It should go without saying, but the only tradesman that can create an EICR for your property will be a fully qualified and certified electrician. Firstly, an amateur or DIY enthusiast working on your home’s electrical installation could seriously injure themselves or cause significant damage to your home. Secondly, an EICR that is not signed off by a proper professional will mean next to nothing if you ever need to use it a legal situation.

The test itself will compare your electrical installation to the standards specified in BS7671. It will involve an in-depth inspection of your building’s internal wiring and will pinpoint any faults, such as an overloaded circuit, as well as potential shock and fire hazards. Although there is no official recommendation for how often you should get an EICR, professionals advise that you arrange one every five to ten years. The report you receive at the end of the tests will include any recommended repair work for your property.

The cost of an EICR will depend on the size of your property and the number of circuits that will be examined. An EICR for a single bedroom studio flat can cost, on average, between £80 and £100. The cost for a one or two bedroom house will usually be between £120 and £180, while for a three or four bedroom house the cost will be between £160 and £300.

Prices can vary significantly between local and national companies, so be sure to collect several quotes to compare. A national company’s higher prices will usually be because of higher overheads rather than a superior service, so do not be afraid to go with a local Pro. Prices can also vary across the country, with electricians in London and the south of the UK charging more for their services than those elsewhere.
