The average cost of an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) is between £100 and £300.

How much you’ll pay depends on where you live, the size of your house, the condition of your electrics and the number of circuits being tested.

But whether you’re a homeowner, a landlord or a tenant, an EICR (also known as an electrical safety certificate) is a necessary step for ensuring the safety of you and the property.

The cost of an EICR generally depends on:

  1. The size of your property: The bigger the property, the higher the cost.
  2. The age and condition of your electrics: Older properties with outdated or faulty electrics typically take longer to test as more time is needed to locate and identify the necessary elements, as well as record the observations and recommendations.
  3. Where you live: Regional fluctuations in the cost of labour mean properties in London and the south-east will cost more to inspect.
  4. The number of circuits being tested: The more circuits you have, the longer the job will take and, in turn, the more it will cost.

The cost also depends on how an electrician conducts the inspection. Some electricians may charge a fixed fee for a whole property, while others may price the report per circuit. Similarly, some electricians may include remedial work within their rate and others may offer it as an additional fee. It is always important to ask what a quote covers.

That said, we’ve compiled a list of the average cost per property size. This should give you a rough idea of the price.

1 Bedroom Flat 

£100 – 150

2 Bedroom Flat 

£120 – 170

3 Bedroom Flat 

£180 – 230

1 / 2 Bedroom House 

£150 – 200

3 / 4 Bedroom House 

£200 – 250

5 + Bedroom House 

£300 minimum 

Prices are based on a 10 circuit consumer unit, excluding VAT.

An EICR normally takes between two and six hours to complete, depending on the size of the property, the number of circuits that require testing and if the property is empty.

For example, a 3 bedroom house with a 10 circuit consumer board (the norm) would take around 4 hours to complete.

That’s it – you now know the cost of an EICR.

For more information, we recommend our guide on Electrical Installation Condition Reports. It covers whether you need an EICR, what it involves, how often you should get it and what to do if you fail.
