Electrical Installation Condition Reports in Twickenham

An electrical installation condition report is a series of inspections and tests that are performed in accordance with the current government regulations.

  • Any missing or inadequate earth bonding that should be present on water and gas main supplies.
  • Any missing or inadequate protective devices that should be present on electrical circuits.
  • Any defectives within the electrical installations that could cause a health and safety risk or a fire hazard.
  • Any loose or damaged cables in addition to deviations from current electrical standards.

  • Every year for a property with a swimming pool


Emergency Lighting Testing in Twickenham

Nearly all commercial buildings, industrial buildings and HMO properties are required to have an emergency lighting system installed. If you have an emergency lighting system, you have a legal duty to maintain the system on a regular basis. Here at Lola Electrical, we can perform your routine electrical testing Twickenham services to ensure the functioning of your emergency lighting system. We recommend that you get these tests completed every 6 months.


Portable Appliance Testing in Twickenham

As with electrical installations, electrical equipment and appliances will deteriorate with use and time. As electrical equipment deteriorates, there is an increased risk of injury, damage or an electrical fire. If you own a commercial, an industrial or a HMO property, then you have a legal obligation to get your electrical equipment and appliances PAT tested annually in which you will receive certification as proof.


Buying a New Property

Costs of rewiring or upgrading an electrical installation within a property can be expensive and a mortgage surveyor will only make general comments on the condition of the electrics. Having a qualified electrician inspect and test the electrical installations within the property before you go ahead with the purchase is always strongly advised. If it’s identified that the electrics within the property need rewiring (there is a strong chance if the electrical installations are over 20 years old), then this can be used to reduce the property value before you buy.
