Domestic Electrical Installation Condition Report

An inspection checks the condition of an electrical installation against BS 7671, the UK standard for the safety of electrical installations.

The inspection aims to identify:

  • electrical circuits or equipment that are overloaded
  • potential electrical shock risks and fire hazards
  • any defective electrical work
  • any lack of earthing or bonding

Landlord Electrical Safety Obligations

For rented accommodation, the maximum period recommended between installation and the first periodic inspection and test is five years.

Periods between subsequent inspections will depend on the condition of the installation at the time of the preceding inspection, but it is recommended that inspection and testing is carried out at least every five years or at the end of a tenancy, whichever comes first.

If a change of tenancy occurs shortly after a full periodic inspection then a Visual Test may be sufficient to confirm that the property is safe to re-let.
