Did you know that...
The majority of surveys you pay for on a property do not go in depth when it comes to checking the Electrical layout of the property and the person checking it does not even look at the internal wiring of the property.
More to the point the person checking it unless a qualified Electrician & qualified Inspector is not even allowed to remove Electrical points or consumer unit covers to inspect the Electrical Wiring and systems underneath. Why take the risk of buying a property you have to spend thousands on when you can the price off the sale price of the property ?.
So far this year we have attended 54 homes in Leeds West Yorkshire who have called me in to do work having recently moved in, only to find the house actually needs a complete re wire costing anything up to £6000.00.
The house owners actually paid for a survey on each of these cases and each one did not recognise the fact the property needed totally rewiring. Only certain types of Electrical contractors who have passed the highest graded technical exams and have extensive experience in the Electrical Industry can give a expert opinion and provide a written report on the Electrical state of a property along with rectification costings.
A standard Electrician cannot provide this so make sure you get the correct person for the job. An Electrical inspector must view the property and this is the person who conducts the survey. I work independently of any Estate Agents, I work for you the customer and as such my report is not bias towards the sale of the property it is factual, evidential and professional. just what you require when determining weather or not to buy a property in this day and age. I am not on commission for the sale of the property as I work for you for the fraction of the cost of a regular survey conducted by Estate Agents.
This is where we come in as part of the home electrical survey in Leeds usually for at the request of the mortgage company (mortgage survey Leeds) we provide a photographs pack for the mortgage survey, A 12 page electrical certificate, costings and written report detailing the state of the residential property post electricla survey.
"I want you the customer to feel that when you hire MPS Electrical Contractors Ltd to conduct your Electrical Survey you know that we work solely for you, not the Estate Agents and that the report you get will be from the highest qualified Inspector & Tester registered with the National Association of Professional Inspectors & Testers with over 25 years Contracting experience, I vow to you now if someone has covered up a Electrical mess in your potential new home we will find it before you sign, we will photograph it for you to see in my report to you"
MPS Managing Director
Imagine moving into your new house in Leeds that you think all is well only to find that it needs a complete rewire which involves:
- Walls & Ceilings being chased and damaged
- Decorating ruined
- Skirting boards being removed
- Carpets & Laminate floors being lifted up.
- Floorboards being taken up.
Why has this happened?
This happened because anyone can put a new style socket and light switch on a wall and cover up a potential mess of non earthed wiring underneath. It is only until you check underneath the surface that you find the errors which can cost a small fortune to put right. As a 17th Edition Electrical Inspector I am qualified to say in writing the Electrics inside a property have to meet a certain standard, if they do not then my written reports save you money off your new home as I make written estimations on correcting the wiring. That means you can take my report back to the estate Agents and inform them your offer is now going to be less due to the amount of corrective work needed to make the electrics correct. That means you do not have to shell out unnecessary funds and force the home owner to correct the work or you simply do not buy the property.
Contact me today 0113 3909670 / 07864 000951 and I will arrange through your estate agents to visit your potential new home, I will thoroughly inspect it and provide you with a written fault list, and a professional estimation on how much it will cost to put right.
Thermo Graphic Surveys
The Electrical surveys benefits in Leeds are:
- It is extremely useful for customers wishing to assess the possible fire risk from an electrical system that cannot easily be powered down.
- Provides valuable information about overheated components, not necessarily revealed by conventional electrical testing practices.
- Can be instrumental in containing insurance premiums.
- Offers good value-for-money and is usually cost-effective because large areas can be examined in a relatively short space of time.
- It is possible to view electrical accessories at a considerable distance and ascertain the surface temperature of each box to within a few degrees! Even the very advanced imaging cameras that we use are unable to 'see' through enclosed switchgear and panels have to be removed to view bus bar connections or similar items. However, the existence of a problem is generally indicated by an item's surface temperature, relative to that of similar components close by.
