An electrical installation condition report (EICR) is produced following an inspection of a property’s electrics including wiring, sockets, and fuse box. Whether you are a homeowner, landlord, or business owner, having an EICR carried out by a professional electrician ensures your property is safe for occupants.
Certain types of installations require more frequent electrical safety checks. For example, inspections should occur every 3 years for industrial installations and annually for hotels and restaurants.
EICR rates mainly depend on the following factors:
Examples of Code C1 include exposed live wires that are accessible to human touch and conductive parts that have become exposed.
Examples of Code C2 include the absence or a reliable earthing, and when a metallic pipe is used for flammable liquids like gases.
Examples of Code C3 include the absence of a \'Safety Electrical Connection - Do Not Remove\' sign, and socket outlets mounted incorrectly.

Below are the average EICR costs for different-sized homes:
The rate for commercial properties also depends on size but expect to pay £15-20 per circuit tested, excluding VAT.
A commercial EICR will generally cost more than a residential report. This is because commercial properties are larger and have more complex installations than a standard home.
A periodic inspection must be carried out when selling a previously owned house, or if the property is a house in multiple occupation (HMO).
