The Problem.

In less time than you may think, the electrics in your home can become damaged or worn through general wear and tear. Government statistics show unsafe electrical installations cause more than 750 serious accidents and 12,500 fires in homes each year.

Very few homeowners in the UK have their homes regularly inspected for electrical faults, or have a proper maintenance schedule in place; as a consequence nothing is done until a serious incident occurs adding to the statistics above.

Old wiring, faulty outlets, poorly installed DIY projects all contribute to a failing electrical system, some of the signs are obvious while
many others are not and may only be identified by a trained electrical engineer. You should be extra cautious if the property is old as it runs a higher risk of having faulty wiring. Don’t put your life or your investment at risk.

The Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), advise clients (buying property) to be very cautious if the electrics look suspicious because of the potentially high costs of putting things right. You can’t see what’s behind the walls so it’s best to get a trained electrical engineer to inspect and test it.

An electrical survey, also known as a Periodic Inspection, looks for possible electric shock risks and fire hazards. The electrician will carry out tests on wiring and fixed electrical equipment, identify any faulty electrical work and highlight if all required safety measures are present. After the inspection, you are given an electrical survey report (Electrical Installation condition Report). The report identifies the overall condition of all the electrics, stating whether it is satisfactory for continued use or any work which might need to be done.
