    Commercial condition reports and electrical surveys near Betchworth

    As part of our commercial electrical services in Betchworth, Reigate, or Buckland, we offer complete commercial condition reports. Our electricians complete a series of visual inspections, as well as live and dead testing to ensure any electrical installation and associated outlets, including wiring, switches, and sockets meets the safety standards set out by the IET Wiring Regulations.

    All electrical installations will degrade over time; sockets and switches can sustain damage, connections can become loose, or certain parts of the system may no longer meet latest regulations. Old and faulty wiring can be the main cause of electrical fires, electric shocks, and overheating. If you are a property manager or owner of a commercial property, it is your responsibility under the Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 to ensure that the installation within your property is safe. This legislation places a duty of care on employers and commercial condition reports must be cone at regular intervals to ensure compliance.

    A commercial EICR will:

    • Look for any defective electrical work
    • Highlight any fire hazards or shock hazards
    • Look for any lack of earthing or bonding
    • Assess and evaluate the Residual Current Devices (RCDs)
    • Ensure the presence of the correct identification and notices
    • Look at the condition and any deterioration to sockets, light fittings, and switches

    RH1 electrical surveys: The questions to ask

    Whilst there is a legal duty placed on commercial property managers and owners, it is also recommended that EICRs in Reigate are completed every 10 years for owner occupied homes, or when a property is being bought or sold. Landlords will need to ensure their rental property’s electrics are inspected every five years or with each change of tenancy. There are various reasons why EICRs may need to be completed more frequently.

    • Are you concerned about your electrical installation for any reason?
    • Is your property being bought or sold?
    • Are you know and understand your legal duties regarding your property?
    • Do you have an EICR that is due to expire?
    • Are you about to put a property on the market?
    • Are you about the rent your property out or welcome new tenants?
    • Are you reviewing your electrical maintenance plans?

    After your survey has been completed, any departures from current guidelines are given a code from C1 (the most serious) to C3 (which means that changes are recommended). Any reports with a C1 or C2 code will be ‘unsatisfactory’. If there are any problems with your system, our electricians will always be able to give a quick and fair quote for fixing the problem. The code F1 indicates that further investigation is required.

    Reigate home buyer electric tests

    Nova Electrical regularly completes pre-purchase electrical surveys in Reigate on behalf of potential buyers, estate agents, or surveyors. Buying a house is a massive commitment and investment, so it makes sense to ensure that it is a sound purchase. Many people believe that a normal house survey will take into account the state of the electrics but this is not the case. Only a professional electrician will be able to inspect the system in any great depth. It is important from not only a safety point of view but to ensure you are not left with hefty bills due to rewiring or other issues, shortly after moving in.

    Landlord EICRs and electrical safety certificates in Reigate

    Did you know that more than half of fires start in a household are as a result of old wiring? Being a landlord can be very rewarding but it is a significant undertaking and requires compliance with various rules and laws to ensure the safety of your tenants.
