Complying with the strict laws set out by Health and Safety at Work legislation and Electricity at Work regulations is absolutely essential.

We provide highly-qualified and experienced electricians that you can rely on to complete work that's on time, on budget and that meets or exceeds the required standards.

Electrical Installation Condition Reports

From 1st June 2020, new legislation in The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 requires landlords to hold an Electrical Installation Condition Report prior to starting any tenancies in new rental properties.

It is also highly advisable to inspect existing rental properties in order to demonstrate building safety.

Alpha Electric provide quick, efficient testing of your rental properties so that you are compliant with legislation and have the correct documentation to prove that you are meeting your responsibilities as a landlord.

Commercial Inspection, Testing & Certification

For commercial premises it is recommended that periodic inspection and testing is carried out at the following times:

  • 5 year intervals for rented properties
  • At least every 5 years for business premises

On completion of the necessary inspection and testing, an Electrical Installation Condition Report will be issued, detailing any observed damage, deterioration, defects, dangerous conditions and any non-compliance with the present day safety standard which might give rise to danger.
