What is an Electrical Certificate?

An electrical certificate is a document that is issued to you after a thorough electrical inspection and testing have taken place on your Wembley property. All the electrical circuits and electrical installations will be tested to ensure that they are safe to use. The electrical testing will highlight:

  • Any deviations from current electrical standards such as loose or damaged cables.
  • Any inadequate or missing safety devices that are required on circuits.
  • Any potential health and safety risks or fire hazards such as defectives that could cause electrical shocks.
  • Any inadequate or missing earth bonding on water and gas main supplies.

Once these series of tests and inspections have been completed, the qualified electrician will present an electrical installation condition report which will detail the findings of the electrical testing. The electricians at Lola Electrical can clarify all the findings to you in addition to explaining what (if any) remedial works need to take place to ensure that you can receive an electrical certificate that certifies your electrical installations in Wembley as safe.


What is Portable Appliance testing?

Portable appliance testing (PAT testing) is the testing of all portable electrical appliances and devices within a property or building. It is required that electrical portable appliance testing is carried out:

  • Where appliances are used by employees.
  • Where the public uses electrical equipment in places such as schools, shops, hotels etc.
  • Where the appliances are supplied or hired.
  • Where electrical appliances are repaired or serviced.

Portable appliance testing is recommended as part of our electrical testing Wembley services for landlords but isn’t a legal requirement.

We get many questions from customers when enquiring into our electrical testing Wembley services and we’ve compiled an FAQ section to help answer some of these questions:


How much does an electrical safety certificate cost?

For a four-bedroom property, the average electrical certificate cost will range anywhere from £100 to £250. Here at Lola Electrical, we charge a low £90 for a studio, £100 for a 1-3 bedroom property and £120 for a 4-5 bedroom property. This is an exceptionally low price, especially for the Wembley area. Our commercial electrical certificates range from £120.


How much does a PAT testing certificate cost?

Our PAT testing prices come in at a low £90 for 40 appliances within a domestic property and £100 for 40 appliances within a commercial property.


Do landlords need electrical safety certificates?

Landlords are required by law to ensure that the electrical installations within a property are safe when the tenants move into the property and are appropriately maintained throughout the tenancy. Due to new laws coming into effect soon, it is mandatory that landlords receive electrical testing services every 5 years to ensure that their electrical certificate is valid.


Do you need an electrical safety certificate to sell your house?

You are not required by law to obtain an electrical safety certificate when you sell your house. However, it is highly recommended that you receive one every 10 years or when you sell your property; whichever one comes sooner. However, if there have been any alterations or additions to the electrics within your property since 2005, then you are required to obtain a Part P Building Regulation certificate before you can sell your property.
