The report will cover the results of the tests carried out, the condition of the installation, a list of recommendations, and a conclusion stating that the installation is safe or unsafe. Any unsafe installations will be isolated and warning signs placed on it prior to the engineer leaving site
A home rewire would be needed if the electrical wiring in your house is old or inadequate, otherwise over time this could cause an urgent safety matter. The first sign to check is the colour of the cables – if you find black sheathed cables entering the consumer unit then this is an immediate sign that the wiring needs checking professionally

For Home Owners
There are several sources of potential risk in the home when it comes to electrics, and in many instances electrical work should be undertaken by trained, qualified professionals. This is particularly relevant when dealing with your council’s building control department
Many electrical faults cannot be detected at a visual/operational level, and inspections surveys and periodic inspection are the only way to uncover any latent defects.
It is recommended by the Electrical Safety Council that households have their electrical installations tested at least once every five years (shorter intervals may be required depending on condition of installation) for signs of deterioration
We offer a full inspection and testing service covering your electrical installation, as well as appliance testing (PAT Testing). From these reports we can recommend any and all improvements that may be required to ensure your household is electrically safe.
Accidental fires of electrical origin in home (2007)
If you let a property in the UK, you should ensure that the electrical systems and all appliances supplied are safe
In the event of an electrical fault causing death or injury, landlords can be found negligent resulting in financial and custodial sentences.
The Electrical Safety Council (ESC) has provided a report giving guidance for landlords that can be obtained by its website. The guidelines outline four key activities that should be undertaken by landlords, that include:
Visual checks – checking for visible damage/flickering lights
Electrical installation condition reports (EICR) previously known as Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) – recommended every 5 years, or at the change on tenancy
Portable Appliance Test (PAT) – frequent inspection is necessary, but varies for different types of appliances
Fire Alarms and Emergency Lighting – correct selection, testing and maintenance
Full guidance notes can be obtained by visiting ESC website
