Landlord Domestic Fixed Wire Test EICR | Leigh-on-Sea | Essex | SS9

Leigh Electrical Contractors carry out hundreds of fixed wire EICR tests for local landlords every year, electrical testing is needed so that the landlord knows that their property is safe for their tenants to use.

Periodic inspections of the electrical system is needed so that the property is up to date with the current IET wiring regulations so that the landlord complies with the local councils tenancy requirements and responsibilities.

We have been carrying out maintenance, smoke alarm installation and EICR periodic inspection and testing for many years for him through the estate agent that manages his properties.

The landlord had recently bought a new property and wanted an EICR test carried out and all the remedial work done on the same day as the estate agent had a new tenant lined up to move in on the Monday. We assured the landlord that even though it was Friday afternoon when we got the keys we could have it ready before the deadline.

Leigh Electrical Contractors keep pretty much everything that could be needed for any sized job, which means we can cover most out of hours or weekend work without needing to go to a wholesaler for parts, this is why we are trusted by so many landlords to get the job done!

When we arrived at the property we realised that the job was going to be a lot bigger than we first thought, as the fusebox straight away failed as it was the old fusewire model. There was also no main earth or any bonding to the gas or water, and the property also had no smoke alarms, these are all requirements to rent out a property.

Luckily being a local company we put out a distress call to the team and managed to get another 2 engineers to the property to help on the ever growing job. Whilst the EICR test was carried out one electrician ran in the bonding and installed an earth rod under the floor, the other electrician wired in Aico smoke alarms in the hallway, landing, lounge and put a combined Aico combined heat and carbon alarm in the kitchen.

All of the test results were satisfactory so we agreed with the landlord that the fusebox would be updated to a new Amendment 3, metal clad, board with RCBOs and a surge protection unit for added safety.

The board change was carried out over the weekend and with some other small remedial electrical work  the property passed the EICR test and was ready for the new tenant to move in on the Monday morning.
