Your Edinburgh Electricians Guide to Electrical Certification for Landlords

Your Edinburgh Electricians Guide to Electrical Certification for Landlords

When embarking on any electrical project, it is important that you work with an expert electrician team you can trust. All reputable Edinburgh electricians will be able to guarantee & certify any work they complete and electrical certification will give you that extra peace of mind guarantee. 

Professional electrical certification exists to ensure that all work carried out by a professional Edinburgh electrician is completed to the highest possible standards and that these standards are of the highest level consistently across industry.

Now you know that your electrical installation project may require professional certification but what are the different types of electrical certification available and which ones apply to you? The type of electrical report of certification you will receive from your Edinburgh electrician once your project is complete, will depend on the type of electrical testing or inspection that has taken place.

When any Edinburgh electrician completes work on your property you need to ensure that you both receive and keep any relevant paperwork that relates to the completed electrical installation or home rewire work. You will also need to keep a record  of anything that relates to electrical testing or periodic inspection. All reports and electrical certificates ideally need to include test results, dates and schedules of all inspections that have been completed by your trusted Edinburgh electrician.

As NICEIC registered electrical contractors, all the work carried out by our expert Edinburgh electrician team is fully certified. EICR (electrical installation condition reports) are a detailed electrical inspection service and one which our team here at DC Electrical Edinburgh, are experts at carrying out. The tests completed and standards met via the EICR reporting system are vital for ensuring your Edinburgh property’s electrical safety. These safety checks which are carried out as part of the EICR testing are also of the utmost importance when renting out your Edinburgh property to a tenant or if it is being used in a commercial capacity. The Landlords and Tenants Act of 1985, outlines that the electrical safety of tenants is the responsibility of the landlord and property owner. Landlords or property agents who act on behalf of a property owner will also be responsible for the electrical safety of tenants. A full electrical inspection is required with every change of tenancy or every five years (whichever comes first).

Along with EICR (electrical installation condition reports) inspections and reporting, our friendly Edinburgh electrician team also offer minor work certification, emergency lighting certification, fire alarm certification, and PAT testing. PAT testing stands for portable appliance testing and is a term electricians use to describe the process of examining electrical equipment and appliances to ensure that they are safe for use.

Whether you are an Edinburgh homeowner, landlord, property developer or business owner our friendly, expert Edinburgh electrician team have got you covered! Why not contact us today for more details of our full range of electrical testing and certification services.
