Your Edinburgh Electricians Guide to Landlord Requirements, Testing & Certification (EICR)

Your Edinburgh Electricians Guide to Landlord Requirements, Testing & Certification (EICR)

With the Summer break in full swing, now is a great time for Edinburgh landlords (especially owners of student accommodation across the city) to contact your local expert electrician team here at DC Electrical Edinburgh to ensure that all electrical testing and relevant certification is completed and up to date.

We fully appreciate how many things need to be considered when renting out a property & know that there is a surprising amount of things that need to be checked off to ensure your tenants are safe and you as a landlord are legally protected.Your Edinburgh rental property may need some electrical testing, maintenance or may need to be checked to ensure that it is up to the current safety standards. You can trust that all of our team here at DC Electrical Edinburgh are up to date with all the most recent electrical safety requirements and subsequent testing implications and as we are NICEIC registered contractors all our work is certified for that extra peace of mind guarantee.

As Edinburgh’s premier home rewire and electrical firm we also offer full service landlord packages covering all rental property requirements. Our Edinburgh landlord services cover everything from smoke alarm installation, PAT testing, EICR reports, emergency lighting, fuse board upgrades, fault finding, inspection and testing, storage heater and electric heating SMART upgrades, general maintenance and more so you can be rest assured that no matter what you need, we’ve got you covered!

As per the Landlord and Tenant Act 1985, landlords, or agents acting on their behalf, are responsible for tenants’ electrical safety. This means getting regular electrical inspection done every 5 years or at each change of occupancy. EICR (Electrical Installation Condition Reports) are a detailed and legally required electrical inspection service and an important part of ensuring your tenants safety. Our EIC inspection & reporting service will provide you with all documentation required and we can also carry out any necessary repair work should there be any issues post inspection.  We can also provide reports on existing electrical installations completing a thorough examination of your property’s electrical installation and comprehensive report detailing any necessary work.

Whether you have a whole rental portfolio or a single property, our friendly Edinburgh electrician team offers a full range of landlord services covering everything you need from EICR reporting, PAT testing and of course our first class home rewire services. We’d love to be part of your next project so get in contact with us today for your free, no-strings-attached visual survey and let us take it from there.
