Top 6 Reasons to Need an EICR

Common Reasons for an EICR

Private Rented Property

Rental properties in the UK require an in-date EICR at all times.


Maintaining your in-date certificate improves safety, reduces the risk of electrical fires, reduces the risk of unplanned loss of power or maintenance, avoids the risk of fines & complies with building insurers' standards.

Business Premise

Businesses also require an in-date EICR certificate for the protection of employees, customers, members of the public & property. In the UK, ignoring this requirement can carry legal action & possibly cause insurance to be invalid.

Property Sales

An EICR for a property sale is subject to an agreement between the buyer & the seller; doing so has become increasingly popular as a means of protecting those purchasing property from unknowingly taking on a property in a dangerous electrical condition.

Holiday Lets

Holiday lets need an EICR for the protection of their guest & compliance with legal standards.
