Electrical Inspection in London

What is an Electrical Inspection?

An electrical inspection is where an electrician will perform a thorough check on the electrical installations within a property or building. These inspections take place to ensure that the electrical installations and equipment within the property or building are safe to use without a health and safety hazard being a risk. An electrical inspection will:

  • Reveal if any electrical circuits or equipment are overloaded.
  • Find any hazards that may potentially cause an electrical shock or an electrical fire.
  • Identify any defective electrical work that has previously taken place.
  • Identify if there is any earth bonding missing from water or gas supplies.


How Often Should You Get an Electrical Inspection in London?

You should have an electrical inspection in London carried out every:

  • 10 years for a property that you own and live in.
  • 5 years for a property leased out to tenants.
  • 3 years for caravans.
  • 1 Year for a property that has a swimming pool present.

You should always have an electrical inspection before you let tenants move into your property and before buying or selling a property.


What Happens During The Electrical Inspection?

The electrical inspection in London must be carried out by a certified electrician with the relevant qualifications and skills. The electrician will perform a series of tests on all the electrical installations and circuits with the relevant equipment that is required. If there is a major defect within the installations that is a high health and safety risk, then the electrician will perform the necessary remedial works then and there.

Once the inspection has finished, the electrician should provide you with an electrical installation condition report. This report will detail any deviations that were picked up and the necessary remedial works that need to take place and their urgency. If your electrical installations are all safe, then you will be provided with an electrical certificate. If not, then you will receive an electrical certificate after the necessary remedial works have been completed.
