What is a Landlords Electrical Certificate?

A Landlords electrical certificate is an electrical certificate that is presented to a landlord. An electrical certificate is a document that certifies the electrical installations within a property as safe. You can be presented with this certificate only after an electrical inspection has taken place where a certified electrician will perform thorough checks and tests on the electrical installations. After the inspection has taken place, you will be presented with an electrical installation condition report which will detail the findings of the inspection. If there are any major remedial works that need to be fixed that are listed on the report, then you will not receive your electrical certificate until these remedial works have taken place. Lola Electrical provide landlords’ electrical certificates in Wimbledon and South London.


What Happens if the Electrical Inspection Fails?

During the electrical inspection in Wimbledon, the electrician will check for:

  • Any loose or damaged cables within the electrical installations.
  • The correct protective devices on the electrical equipment and circuits.
  • Any defectives within the installation that could cause a shock or a fire.
  • The earth bonding that should be in place on all the waters and gas main supplies.

If any of these don’t conform to the current electrical standards, then it will be raised at the end of the inspection and you won’t receive your landlords’ electrical certificate in Wimbledon until these issues have been resolved as the electrical installations aren’t safe for use. Once all these fixes and upgrades have taken place, you will need another electrical inspection to receive your electrical certificate. If you choose to have your inspection and remedial works with Lola Electrical, then we will perform another electrical inspection completely free of charge. We will then send a PDF document of your electrical certificate within 24 hours of the passed electrical inspection.
