Greenserve Electrical Superviser Darren Pennington talks about the importance of hiring a qualified electrician to carry out the electrical inspection and any electrical work in your home.

All electrical work on domestic and commercial properties need to be carried out in accordance with current British electrical safety standards and certified to comply with the British Building regulations. Having a registered electrician carrying out electrical work on your property ensures that your electrical installation is safe to use and that you receive a NICEIC certification for any electrical repair, extension or maintenance work undertaken in your home.

The NICEIC certification is important because it is the only way you could access your home insurance in the case of damage to your electrical installation but it is also good to have in case you want to sell your home, as not providing electrical certificates to the home buyer might devalue your property.
