EICR For Buying a new property
Why should I have an EICR before I buy a house
An Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is a thorough inspection of a property’s electrical system to assess its safety and compliance with current regulations. It is recommended to have an EICR before buying a house for several reasons:
- Safety: The safety of the electrical system in a property is critical. An EICR will identify any potential electrical hazards that could pose a risk to the occupants of the property, such as faulty wiring, outdated electrical installations, or unsafe electrical equipment.
- Compliance: An EICR will check if the electrical system is compliant with current regulations and standards. This includes checking if the electrical installations meet the requirements of the Wiring Regulations BS 7671, which is the UK standard for electrical installations.
- Peace of mind: Having an EICR before purchasing a property can provide you with peace of mind knowing that the electrical system is safe and compliant. It can also help you avoid any unexpected costs or issues that could arise due to an unsafe or non-compliant electrical system.
- Negotiating power: If an EICR reveals any issues with the electrical system, you can use this information to negotiate a lower price or request that the issues be fixed before the sale goes through.
Overall, having an EICR before buying a house is essential for ensuring the safety and compliance of the property’s electrical system and can provide you with peace of mind and negotiating power.
