House Buyers Assessments

Our Projects on House Buyers Assessments

With an estimated 1.3 million homes purchased in 2022, it is important that you, as the home buyer carry out the relevant checks using NICEIC and Gas Safe registered, competent electrical and heating engineers your home surveyor is not a registered electrician/heating engineer. Surprisingly only 37% (Electrical Safety First) have the electrical system checked before purchase. Members of the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) recommend that electrical and heating reports are carried out prior to purchase. SWG M&E offer home buyers competitively priced Electrical Installation Condition Reports (EICR). Carried out by our NICEIC registered electricians, an EICR is an inspection of an existing electrical installation. Also known as a Periodic Inspection, our engineers will test to reveal any actual and potential problems. Some mortgage applications require a Mortgage Electrical Survey which is essentially as EICR. From this inspection our engineers can provide you with a no obligation quote to rectify the faults found. Our Gas Safe registered installers offer home buyers a competitively priced gas safety check. Under building regulations all newly installed heat producing appliances must be notified to your local authority to obtain a Building Regulations Compliance Certificate. If your seller is unable to provide this along with an annual gas safety record (gas safety certificate) contact us at SWG M&E to carry out your gas safety check. Check your future home is safe by contacting SWG M&E today.
