Electrical Installation Certificate

In some cases a landlord may have a copy of an Electrical Installation Certificate rather than an EICR.  For example –

New build properties should be provided with an Electrical Installation Certificate,

An Electrical Installation Certificate should be provided when a house is fully rewired.

An Electrical Installation Certificate includes a recommendation for the next periodic inspection.  For a private rented property, IET guidance is that the recommended period is five years.

A landlord who has an Electrical Installation Certificate for a property can provide this in place of an EICR to comply with this guidance, provided that the date of next inspection indicated on the certificate has not elapsed

"Prompt, efficient service with work carried out to a high standard and all done on schedule. Good to have a company like this to deal with the electrical side of a rented property. No qualms on recommending."

Jim Milne

"I had a really good experience with ideal electrical solutions. They were very quick to attend the flat to carry out PAT testing and an EICR. They liaised politely with my tenant and took the hassle of arranging access away from me. For this piece of work the price was right and the service was great. Thank you."
