MOT your home

MOT your home

New research from the NICEIC has revealed that homeowners are risking their lives by not getting their electrics fully checked, leaving potentially deadly faults lurking in thousands of homes.

The NICEIC survey revealed that nearly nine out of ten homeowners don’t really think about getting their electrics fully tested with a professional safety check, with eighty eight percent (88%) confessing that getting their gas boiler checked is more important to them.

Over a third (31%) admitted that they have never had or even thought about having the electrical circuits in their home fully inspected and tested.

That’s why NICEIC has launched ‘MOT Your Home’ - a national consumer safety campaign warning landlords & homeowners about the dangers of electrical DIY and general negligence. The new campaign encourages landlords & homeowners whose property is over 10 years old, to employ a registered electrician to carry out a Periodic Inspection Report (now known as a Condition report).

This change came into effect from the 1st January 2012, and acts like an MOT for the property. It is recommended that this inspection should be carried out every 10 years.


Even though it’s tempting to try and save a few pound where possible at the moment, a simple home MOT could save lives. To help homeowners ensure electrical safety in their home the NICEIC have put together some simple tips and advice to protect families and homes from electrical fire risks.

To ensure any report or electrical work carried out is safe and complies with Building and Electrical Regulations, it’s advisable to employ a registered Electrician.
