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

Domestic Fault Find EICR | Leigh-on-Sea | Essex | SS9

Leigh Electrical Contractors were called by a local landlord in Leigh-on-Sea, Essex they needed a periodic inspection carried out in a house that they owned as it was about to run out. A fixed wire test or EICR is needed every 5 years to comply with the councils landlords responsibility this is a legal requirement and must be followed.

A fixed wire test is needed to make sure that the property is fit for purpose and that its safe for continued use by the tenant. Every circuit in the fusebox is tested and then a sample of sockets and switches are also checked and a report is made stating any non compliance’s. Any remedial work is noted down on the test certificate and booked in at a later date.

This is essential especially in rental properties as the installation can deteriorate over time and they can cause hazards which can impair the safety of the occupants.

Leigh Electrical Contractors carried out the previous EICR so most of the non compliance’s had already been rectified however the regulations are ever changing so there was some minor work to do to bring the property up to the current wiring regulations.

As well as carrying out the fixed wiring test Leigh Electrical Contractors also carried out the domestic smoke alarm test using a smoke canister. The existing smoke alarms were installed by ourselves and unlike the EICR which is tested every 5 years the smoke alarm test is carried out every year.
