One of the main causes of electrical fires in the home is faulty and / or old wiring. Landlords can directly reduce the risk of a fire damage or even destroying their property by regularly checking the condition of the wiring. This is where an electrical condition report (EICR) comes in.
EICRs are nothing new, however a recent change in legislation has now switched on the legal requirement for all landlords in England to carry these out. Prior to becoming EICR’s, they were known as a PIR (periodic inspection report) and ARK have been carrying these out since 1997.
