Fixed Installation Testing or Electrical Installation Condition Reports, should be carried out on domestic electrical installations every 10 years or at change of occupancy. These tests are done to make sure the electrical installation meets current standards and is safe to remain in service.
The inspection involves visually checking the condition of all wiring, sockets, switches, light fittings, fuseboards, earthing and bonding.
Electrical testing is done to measure the adequacy of all wiring and Circuit Protective Devices (fuse, circuit breaker, or RCD) to promptly disconnect the supply under fault conditions.
For more information on why you should test your electrics visit:
It is the Landlords responsibility to maintain the electrical wiring of the property and to ensure continued complience with the current regulations. To achieve this, the property should be inspected and tested every 5 years or between each re-let, and any faults identified should be rectified.
Many lenders insist on an electrical inspection being carried out on the property prior to them committing to the loan. It is often requested that an NICEIC registered electrical contractor must carry out this inspection.
As a consequence of the inspection, dependant upon the outcome, you may be in a position to negotiate a lower purchase price.
