EICR

Electrical Installation Condition Report

We conduct numerous Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICRs) annually, serving both residential and commercial properties. Our clientele for EICRs typically includes landlords, homebuyers, and sellers who seek a comprehensive assessment of their electrical systems.

With our extensive experience, industry qualifications, insurance coverage, and proper registration, we are fully equipped to deliver reliable EICR reports. It's crucial to ensure that your chosen inspector meets these essential EICR requirements.

Our EICR inspection and testing approach revolves around delivering transparent assessments at a competitive price. We are proud to be affiliated with NAPIT (National Association of Professional Inspectors & Testers) and adhere to their EICR coding guidelines.
