A potential buyer may feel more at ease knowing the electrics are secure if you obtain an electrical installation condition report (EICR). Having all the paperwork on hand might hasten the selling process!
It is legally necessary to give an electrical safety certificate selling house in the UK as part of the safety assessment before enabling renters to occupy a property if you are a landlord or rental agent. An electrician with registration and professional experience must conduct the test.
As evidence of the inspection, retain the Electrical Installation Condition Report. Keep your receipts at all times and keep them with the rest of your documents. You must ensure you have all the necessary paperwork before listing your house for sale on the real estate market.
The Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC), which confirms whether the electrical installation work done on the property complies with building rules, is a crucial document. It is against the law to sell your home without providing this certificate. You must also safely keep other corrective reports as they include important details you may require at the time of selling the home.
What exactly is an EICR?
A periodic inspection check, or EICR, ensures the building is electrically secure.
Identification of the following is useful:
1. The wiring’s integrity and deterioration.
2. Verification papers to show home improvements and modifications are secure.
3. Damage to electrical components, such as switches and sockets.
