NICEIC Condition Reports
NICEIC electrical installation condition reports are a detailed report of the existing electrical installation. It is recommended that a property that is rented should be periodically tested every 5 years.
It is not currently a legal responsibility to have an Electrical Safety Inspection and NICEIC Certificate as with gas. The Electrical Equipment (Safety) Regulations 1994 and the Plugs and Sockets etc. (Safety) Regulations 1994, however, enforce the obligation of a landlord to ensure all electrical appliances and wiring in their rented property are safe.
Landlords are bound by legal responsibilities to ensure their tenants are kept safe. Failure to comply can lead to severe penalties or even a jail sentence. If there is a liability case, landlords need to be able to demonstrate ‘due diligence’, meaning they have taken all reasonable steps to ensure tenant safety.
To demonstrate due diligence, it’s important for a landlord to:
Regularly check that appliances supplied are in good working order.
Ensure plug earth tags are in place and that plugs are of an approved type.
Ensure all fuses are of the correct type and rating.
Supply operating instructions and safety warning notices with appliances.
Make sure your tenants know the location of and have access to the main consumer unit, fuses and isolator switch.

Just wanted to thank you for the installation of the heaters. It was a job well done and I am very pleased with them. The two men involved in the installation were very amicable and left the place spotless. I will be very happy to recommend you to others.
I was suitably impressed with the works carried out and Dan and Liam were friendly and professional. It is great to see there’s good companies out there still! I will ensure you get future electrical works.
Your men were great. Checked everything out with me, cleaned up, were polite and made every effort to do what I wanted (whilst not damaging floorboards!). So nice to be able to feel trusting that the job will be done properly. The whole experience has been positive, so many thanks.
We moved out of our house for 9 months whilst it was completely refurbished. They carried out all the electrical installation inside the house and fitted the lighting for the newly designed garden. They listened carefully to what we wanted and were always friendly and courteous.
Thank you for your help, I would like to pass on thanks to Liam and Josh who worked quickly and efficiently to get the job done in a very quick time for me.
Thank you, I was very impressed with the professional and expert service
First class service. I have been using Cobb Electrical for about 5 years now and I can recommend them 100%. They are polite, smartly turned out and turn up bang on time. The invoices are very fair and detailed. It’s nice to support a genuine, local family firm. A pleasure to deal with.
Thank you so much for the excellent work that was done and the absolutely superb customer service! Really appreciate it and I will definitely use you guys again.
Please thank the guys for all the hard work they have put into my home in Hove. I am thinking in particular about the kitchen ceiling! All of them are a pleasure to work with and very professional.
Jack did a great job. very pleased with the work!
