Following on from a recent EICR inspection at this property, one of the recommendations was to upgrade the current consumer unit (fuse boxes) to 18th edition metal clad dual RCD consumer units.

Carrying out this work would bring the installation up to the current B.S 7671 wiring regulations, the work was also received well by the tenants which gave them peace of mind that the property and the landlord was keeping the installation safe and up to date.

Once the work was agreed by the landlord, Fylde Coast rewires liaised with the tenants to book the work in with the minimum amount of disruption and disturbance. In total there was to be 8 consumer units replaced along with some fault finding and remedial works that had also been uncovered during the initial EICR inspection.

The day before the work was to commence, an FCR representative offered the tenants a booking option over the two days the work was expected to be carried out, on the first day FCR replaced five of the eight consumer units. On the second day, the final three consumer units were installed along with the remedials.

Now the work has been completed, Fylde Coast rewires are able to offer installation certificates for each consumer unit along with the relevant Part P documents and an up dated EICR certificate.

It is important as a landlord to keep your property up to a good standard and also within any current regulations, since April 2021, it is compulsory for a landlord to carry out an Electrical Installation Condition report every Five years or less.
