An electrical installation condition report (EICR), or periodic inspection report as they used to be called are often referred to by customers as a Landlord Safety Test or Homebuyers Test.
Only available in Suffolk, North Essex and South Norfolk
Do you need an Electrical Condition Report? Simply yes!
Whether it’s your home, business or a property you rent out, your electrical installation should always be covered by an in date Electrical Condition Report. Although it’s not a legal requirement to have an Electrical Condition Report many legal documents refer to an Electrical Condition Report as a way of satisfying their requirements- The Electricity at Work Act as one example.
Do you know that if you rent out a property
If your tenant is electrocuted due to unsafe electrics then you can be prosecuted? Claiming that you were unaware of the condition of the electrical installation is not a suitable defence. In many areas, the local council will insist on a Condition Report for licencing rental properties.
Things carried out during an EICR,
The consumer unit (or fuseboard)
Wiring and electrical accessories are thoroughly tested and inspected for faults or deviations from the Wiring Standards.
The adequacy of the earthing and bonding.
Devices for protection against fire and electric shock.
Any damage or wear and tear that might affect the safety of the properties inhabitants.

Many faults can’t be seen simply by looking and are only picked up during testing.
As an NICEIC Approved contractor, any report issued by East Green Energy Limited will be more than sufficient to meet the requirements of an insurance company, most clients or landlords that may be ordering the tests to be carried out.
