An Electrical Installation Condition Report, or EIC Report (EICR), is a staple item when buying or selling an older property. The EIC Report is a complete appraisal of the state of the electrical system in a building and it is applicable to both domestic and commercial premises. In business, there is a requirement to obtain a new report every few years to ensure you are compliant with health and safety legislation. N.I.C. Electrics can test and report on any electrical installation. We operate across Stockport and throughout South Manchester.
The mortgage lender or surveyor may recommend that an Electrical Installation Condition Report is obtained to ensure there are no serious problems with the electrical supply. Homeowners often call in an electrical contractor to ensure that their home is tested prior to the property being placed on the market.
If electrical problems or risks are identified, we can supply a free quotation for major electrical work so that the buyer and vendor are clear about the extent of the problem. The cost than then be accurately used in further negotiation, helping all parties to reach a swift and fair conclusion.
N.I.C. Electrics can test any home in our catchment area. If the home has 3 or fewer bedrooms, the cost is just £190, providing there are 10 or fewer circuits on the consumer unit.
Landlords and letting agents will be well aware of the legal requirements governing the electrical standards that rental properties must comply with. N.I.C. Electrics can help you discharge those responsibilities by rapidly and efficiently running an EICR on any property in your portfolio. We can liaise with tenants or collect keys from the letting agents to ensure that the test is performed as smoothly and quickly as possible. The EICR report will be supplied in digital format by email to ensure that you have a permanent record and if needs be at any time in the future, can be re-emailed.
Businesses are legally required to have an Electrical Installation Condition Report on a regular basis to ensure that the building’s electrics comply with the HSW Act. Equally, the business may need to commission a new report after a disaster, such as a flood or fire.
Our Electrical Installation Condition Report will check that personnel and livestock will not be at risk of injury (such as shock or burns) resulting from a fault in the electrical system. It also checks that the building is protected against heat damage and is of sound condition.
The EICR report will be supplied in digital format by email to ensure that you have a permanent record and if needs be at any time in the future, can be re-emailed.
We provide reports at low fixed fee price. The basic report covers a typical small business (with up to 10 circuits on the consumer unit). At £190, electrical safety compliance is affordable for any business.
