Domestic Installation Certificate

When there is something electrical installed in a property, a domestic installation certificate is needed in order to comply with Building Regulations. This is needed in order to prove it is safe and to also reduce hazards or injury caused by any faulty electrics. This may be needed by your surveyor if you are selling your property as evidence of these installation certificates.

Domestic Minor Works Ceriticate

This type of certificate is an electrician accepting responsibility for any work they have carried out. This is required for smaller installations or alterations to a domestic building. Any section of rewiring, installation of electrical appliances will need to have a minor works certificate to state that they are safe to use and also been correctly carried out.

Portable Appliance Testing (PAT)

We also carry out Portable Appliance Testing (PAT) for landlords, businesses and individuals in order to make sure that electrical products that you use daily are safe. For businesses these tests are mandatory by law, we also advise that testing is done on your own personal appliances. Faulty appliances can cause fires or electrocute the user.

Periodic Inspection Report / Electrical Installation Condition Report

This is an electrical survey which is able to tell you the general condition of your electrics, it can also flag up any issues. For example, it can reveal when circuits may be overloaded, any problems with installation or wiring and also if there is any lack of earthing or bonding. It is natural for the quality of electrical installs to lessen over time this is why PIR’s should be done at regular intervals. For home owners we advise for it to be done every 10 years or when you are selling your property. These reports should be done more often for letting agents and landlords. The recommended time between PIR’s for rented properties should be every 5 years, or when the property is being leased to a new person to ensure the previous tenants didn’t damage the electrics. Although these are not compulsary, if something did go wrong with the electrics in your rented property, you may be liable if you are not able to prove they have been tested. These reports may also contribute to lowering your insurance premiums
