Electrical Inspection Testing

Electrical Inspections Testing in London, Essex & South East.

What is electrical inspection testing?

‘Electrical inspection testing’ is an in-depth, detailed, methodical test and inspection of the electrical wiring in a property. It applies to houses, flats, offices and factories.

As a property owner or buyer you’ll need to arrange electrical inspections before you can be issued electrical certificates.

Who carries out electrical inspection testing?

Electrical inspection testing can only be carried out by a fully competent electrician who is qualified with the latest updates to the UK’s strict electrical regulations. Quite right too – electricity can be extremely dangerous when electrical wiring isn’t working as it should.

What is the purpose of electrical inspection testing?

The purpose of electrical inspection testing is to determine the safety of the electrical wiring in a property.

Once your property’s electrical wiring is checked and made safe, you’ll be issued an electrical certificate. If you don’t have an electrical inspection test, you won’t be able to get a certificate.

Why do I need electrical inspection testing?

If you plan to sell or rent your property you will almost certainly be asked for an electrical certificate. Most letting agencies will not touch your property without one, which is fair enough. The courts take a very dim view of property owners who let dangerous buildings.

If you’re buying a property it is normal practice these days to have electrical inspection testing before you make a decision. If you’re spending good money on a property you’ll be keen to make sure it’s safe.

What if I don’t have an electrical inspection?

If you don’t have electrical inspection testing carried out on your property, or on the place you plan to buy, you and the people in the building will be at risk from electric shocks and electrical fires. Both can be lethal.

Are there any legal requirements?

Although at the moment, with tenanted property, there’s no legal requirement for an electrical safety certificate, they are widely required by the letting industry.
