An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) – formerly known as a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) – on the safety of the electrical installations, fixtures and fittings.
Any size Residential & Commercial properties done for fixed price.
What are the consequences to Landlords after failing to comply with electrical safety regulations?
If electrical installations and appliances provided by the landlord, are found to be unsafe, then you could face:
A £5,000 fine
Six months imprisonment
Potential criminal charges in the event of injury or death
Invalidated property insurance.
Of course, it’s in your best interests to keep your property’s electrics in the best condition. Safe tenants are happy tenants (which makes the business of letting your property much easier), and safe electrics also greatly minimize the risk of costly damage (such as fire) to your property. So in addition to the basic legal requirements mentioned above, it’s worth taking additional safety measures by the landlords.
