EICR again - Which one is correct?

Reply to the comment left by Seething Landlord at 15/10/2020 - 19:22I totally agree! I bought two properties seven years ago and, before any tenants moved in, I had EICRs done on both properties. The work included one new consumer unit, earth cable upgrades and other C2/C3 remedial work. The electrician was pretty busy and the total cost was around £900. A few people I know thought I was mad "spending all that money." This year, in order to comply with the new regs, I had the EICRs done again (with tenants in residence) and it was simple and straight forward with no problems and minimal disruption. When it comes to electrical work never cut corners. You have no control over what your tenants plug into the sockets and if the right protection is not there and there's an incident - guess who is in the sh**te??... Read More

Be warned - Use your own electrical contractor?

For an EICR you should employ an electrician (competent person) who is registered with a government-approved trade association such as the National Association of Professional Inspectors and Testers (NAPIT) or the NICEIC. There may be other approved associations. In the case of NAPIT, the required competency is EIS. Plenty of information on the NAPIT and NICEIC websites. Fees for the EICR will depend on the number of circuits to be tested. For a 3 bed terraced house (NE England) I was charged £230 for up to 10 circuits by a NAPIT registered electrician. There was £70 of remedial C3 items. Anyone who tells you he/she can do the job for £100 is probably not going to do the job properly.... Read More

Labour Manifesto - Attack on the PRS

I voted to leave in 2016 and I stand by that decision today. The conduct of our EU "friends" during the last 3+ years together with my own research has me convinced that leaving the EU is still best for the UK. Corbyn won't deliver Brexit and, although I'm not a great fan of Boris, he still has my vote. All the people I know who voted leave are looking forward to Brexit...... Read More

Labour Manifesto - Attack on the PRS

Corbyn and his delusional extreme-left pals have been waiting all their sorry lives for an opportunity to do this to our once wonderful country. If they win the election, and I very much doubt that they will, we'll only have to endure them for one term! They'll wreck the economy and nobody will vote them in again. Unfortunately, it'll take much longer to repair than it did to destroy. For all the Boris haters - grit your teeth and vote for him as the alternative is altogether more frightening.... Read More
