Periodic Inspections in London

The team at J & P are skilled and carrying our periodic inspections of domestic and commercial properties. These inspections take place to accurate assess the condition of an existing electrical installation, to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against the national safety standard for electrical installations.

Our periodic inspections will:

  • Reveal if any of your electrical circuits or equipment is overloaded
  • Find any potential electrical shock risks and fire hazards in your electrical installation
  • Identify any defective DIY electrical work
  • Highlight any lack of earthing or bonding

Tests are also carried out on wiring and associated fixed electrical equipment to check that it is safe.

Why Would I Need a Periodic Inspection?

According to Government statistics, each year on average 10 people die and about 750 are seriously injured in accidents involving unsafe electrical installations in the home.

Without exception, all electrical installation deteriorates with use and age. It is therefore absolutely essential that the person responsible for the maintenance of the installation take the necessary steps to ensure that the safety of users is not compromised and that the installation continues to function in a safe and serviceable condition.

How Often Should They Take Place?

It is recommended that periodic inspection and testing is carried out at least every:

  • 10 years for a domestic installation
  • 5 years for a commercial installation
  • 3 years for caravans
  • 1 year for swimming pools

Other instances when a periodic inspection should be carried out are:

  • When a property is being prepared to be let
  • Prior to selling a property or when buying a previously occupied property
  • Where there is reason to believe that damage has been cause to the building such as flooding or fire.
