eicr cost

So, same question, there is a company doing an eicr report (domestic) for £169 with VAT. Is this an OK price and are the same checks used for landlords and also buying and selling house or should I get a difference certificate for electrics?

Is this quote fair?

    Same question, similar answer...

    There is a thread here you should take a look at:

    https://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/discussion/5855292/gas-electrical-safety-certificate-buying-selling-home-buyer-report/p1

    Quite a few members on here have used that company (including me) and they offer simple pricing (although I am pretty sure their prices have gone up a little since 2018) and they do checks for landlords, buyers and sellers.

    Home Buyer Report – Standard £189

    Includes:
    Gas Safety Certificate
    Electrical Installation Condition Report
    Add Boiler Service +£30

    Landlord - Standard £79

    Includes:
    Gas Safety Certificate
    Boiler Service

    Landlord - Bronze £129

    Includes:
    Gas Safety Certificate
    Boiler Service
    Energy Performance Certificate


    ....slightly cheaper prices than what you are finding... D


    P.S. Let us know how you get on...

    It's very cheap.

    What is included and excluded depends on the extent and limitations agreed between the Contractor and the Client.

    I paid £150 for an EICR when I was buying my house a few years ago

    Prices have gone up a lot in a few years. This is a socially deprived area here, and I have been charging more than £150 for that for many years.
