As the rules came in, we all obviously had to have EICR’s done on all of our properties. Unfortunately, one of my properties failed its EICR. It was issued with a ‘Fail’ EICR … for context, the house was built in the early 1970’s and predictably needed a new consumer unit and a couple of other upgrades. The test cost £200 + VAT … and the remedial work was quoted at £1200 + VAT. Not ideal – but fair enough – I expected it would need work doing.
When I was quoted for the remedial work the Electrician (medium sized local firm) … quoted for the work, including the issuing of an updated certificate.
Now the work has been done, and they have given me a certificate of Installation for the consumer unit – but not an updated EICR!
They are suggesting that I don’t need an updated EICR as the work has been done, but what am I supposed to show the tenant? A copy of the failed EICR plus an installation certificate for a new consumer unit and an invoice for the remedial works? Surely that can’t be right?!?
I read the rules, but felt they are a bit ambiguous (ie. you must evidence that you have had the remedial work done from a failed certificate) – but as my quote was for an updated certificate I am feeling a bit cheated!
Anyone had similar – I cannot understand why they just don’t re-issue another EICR with ‘Satisfactory’ stamped on it!
Not paid them yet.
Any advice greatly appreciated!
