Electrical installations like this main distribution board need regular condition inspections
We found signs of burning on one of the main distribution boards during our five-year EICR inspection. 
We recently completed a five-year Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) for a three-floor office building. 
The building was completely remodelled five years ago and is maintained to a high standard. Any electrical issues are reported to us immediately by the facilities team. 
We made our inspection visit to the site at the weekend to minimise disruption while we powered everything down.  
A house buyer's report doesn't include the state of your proprty's electrics
If you are moving house do you think an electrical check is included in your house buyer’s survey? Do you think it’s important? 
Across the country millions of properties are bought each year. According to government figures there were just over 11,000 residential property sales in Northamptonshire in the year ending March 2022. 
However, research carried out by Electrical Safety First found that only about a third of house buyers have their property’s electrics checked before they buy.
