Filling in this form  will instantly give you estimates for an Electrical Installation Condition Report on your property.  These estimates will come directly from Electricians who work in your local area.  You will also be provided with their full contact details, all within less than a second.  You can then contact them directly to discuss prices and service.  If you decide to place an order you can deal with them directly.  There is no middle man.


There are many different reasons for commissioning an Electrical Survey and you will need to discuss your requirement with your chosen Electrician.

If you are purchasing a relatively modern property you may require a full inspection with testing to confirm that the electrics are in good working order.  The format of the old Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) has been superseded and you will probably now require an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).

If you are considering the purchase of an older property which has old wiring it would be wise to seek expert advice on whether the building needs a complete rewire or only a minor updating.  In the case of very old wiring, it is likely that the Electrician will advise a full rewire and therefore thorough testing of the electrical system would be unnecessary - there is no point in testing something that you are going to replace.  The report in this case is more likely to concentrate on estimating the possible costs to rewire.

If you are purchasing a more modern property then you might require a full inspection with testing to confirm that everything is in good working order.  In the past your requirement would have been for a Periodic Inspection Report (PIR) but this report format has been superseded and so you will probably now require an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).

If you are a landlord then you may require testing of your property and an Electricians Report to meet legislative requirements.

If remedial work is required to upgrade an Electrical Installation and make it compliant with current standards, your chosen Electrician may be able to help you with this or alternatively you could run a listing request for local Electricians in your area.

Completing the form above will instantly provide you with a list of Electricians who can provide the service you need.  In addition to their contact details you will also see details of their qualifications to help you make a choice.  It is important that electrical installation work is carried out only by persons who are competent.  Such persons are those that have the necessary knowledge, training and experience to enable them to avoid dangers to themselves and others that electricity can create.  It is strongly recommended that you use an Electrician who is registered with one of the government-approved schemes to carry out any electric installation work that you need doing.

Registered Electricians will work in compliance with the UK national standard, BS 7671 - Requirements for Electrical Installations.  They will issue a safety certificate for their electrical work to confirm that the installation has been designed, constructed, inspected and tested, in accordance with the standard.

You should ensure that your chosen Electrician is registered with one of the following organizations:

BRE Certification Ltd

British Standards Institution


NAPIT Registration Ltd

NICEIC Group Ltd

SELECT (Scotland)

I was contacted by Don Walker-Johnston Business Development and Compliance Manager Southern Drain Services Ltd and they provided an electrician and lights and carried out the work satisfactorily. The cost was very reasonable and I would use their services again. They carried out the work and cleared up and followed up that I was happy with the finished job. Thank you for your assistance.
