Home buyers pre purchase electrical reports, inspections and surveys

Multi-trade provide home buyers pre purchase electrical reports in London, anywhere in London - North, South, East and West London. In fact, anywhere inside the M25.

What is a home buyers pre-purchase electrical inspection?

The clue is in the title! A home buyers pre-purchase electrical inspection is sometimes called a visual electrical inspection. It is a visual survey of a domestic electrical system and a subsequent report. It's a quick and cheap way of identifying any defects, damage or deterioration of the electrical installation and to determine whether it complies with the current BS7671 electrical safety standard. As this type of inspection does not involve any circuit testing, it can't determine whether the installation is completely safe for continued use.

So, why would I want a this type of electrical inspection and report?

If you're thinking about buying a home, you might want to consider a pre-purchase electrical inspection. This quick and relatively cheap report can give you a reasonable indication of the state of the electrical system in the property. And this information can help you to make an better informed decision on whether the electrical system will need repair or upgrading in the near future. You might want to take this into account when making an offer - or not as the case may be!.


Pre-purchase electrical survey & report

This survey and report is most useful for potential home buyers. It can save the expense of a full electrical safety certificate, technically known as a Periodic Inspection Report or (PIR). Producing a PIR is a far more time consuming process and therefore considerably more expensive. As you might not purchase the property, it simply not cost effective to purchase a PIR for this scenario.

  • Safety of the electrical system

Testimonials

TestimonialI recommend that everyone gets a pre-purchase electrical report before they exchange on their property because it saved me several thousand pounds. An estate agent friend (not the estate agent I was dealing with for the property in question) at Kinleigh, Folkard & Haywood suggested that I get one of these reports because I was purchasing an old house. I found Multi-trade on Google. It was a Godsend and uncovered a massive amount of electrical problems. I got a quote from them for a major electrical re-wire. I still purchased the property, but it enabled my to secure a large discount from the asking price. I am very grateful to Multi-trade for this report!
