What is an Electrical Certificate?

Electrical Certificates CroydonAn electrical certificate is a document which deems the electrical installations within your property or building as safe to use. When you receive an electrical certificate, it is valid for a maximum of 10 years and once it has expired, you are required by law to obtain a new valid electrical certificate. These rules are applicable to landlords, people who are buying and selling a property or have a commercial building which is open to the public. Lola Electrical can present you with valid electrical certificates Croydon has available after you have passed an electrical inspection with us.


What is an Electrical Inspection?

An electrical inspection (also called a periodic inspection) is where a certified electrician or another official body will perform a series of thorough checks on the electrical installations and equipment within your property or building. Many people often get these inspections when they believe that there is a fault within the electrical installations, however, electrical inspections should be carried out more frequently to prevent a fault from happening. You should have an electrical inspection every:

  • 10 years for self-owned properties that you live in.
  • 5 years for properties that you have leased out to tenants.
  • 3 years for caravan homes.
  • 1 year for properties and buildings that have a swimming pool.

You also need to have an electrical inspection on the premises when:

  • You are buying a property.
  • Selling a property.
  • Renting a property to new tenants.
  • Your electrical certificate expires.
  • When a flood or fire has taken place on the property.

Our electrical certificates Croydon services will cover your electrical inspection, electrical installation report and your electrical certificate if the electrical inspection is a success.


What is an Electrical Installation Condition Report?

An electrical installation condition report is handed to you after the electrical inspection has taken place and will detail information such as:

  • Whether there were any health and safety concerns such as loose or damaged cables within your electrical installations.
  • It will clarify whether your circuits have the correct protection devices present in full working order.
  • It will highlight any defectives within the installation that could pose as a health and safety risk such as a fire hazard or an electrical shock.
  • Whether there is any earth bonding missing from your water or gas main supplies.
  • The next recommended electrical inspection date which is dependent on the current condition of your electrical installations.
