The UK’s leading certification body for the electrical industry – NICEIC – has issued a pack for landlords to highlight that the three major hazards caused by electricity in properties are:
These may result from a deterioration over time in the electrical installation and the equipment used within the property. There may also be damage to switches, sockets and other equipment, and they can also be caused by misuse of the installation and equipment itself. Finally, poorly carried out – or even a complete lack of – maintenance can be a contributory factor.
To protect both landlords and tenants from the above risks, NICEIC recommends that an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is carried out every five years, or when there is a change of occupancy. It also recommends that the work is undertaken by a NICEIC-approved contractor, so why not give MS Electrical a call on 01353 665106 to book your next EICR?
We are fully accredited by NICEIC, giving you and your tenants greater peace of mind that the properties you let have the highest standards of electrical safety. And as well as carrying out EICRs, we also undertake fixed wire testing and PAT testing in Cambridge, so please contact us to request a quotation.
We have been extremely pleased with the service provided by MS Electrical. In all our dealings with them they have proven to be efficient, reliable and a pleasure to deal with. We would not hesitate to recommend their services.
