    Hello,

    I've been asked by an estate agent to do a electrical safety check on a rental property. I have never done one and wondered what is involved and what paper work was needed.

    Can anyone help?

    If you gotta ask, you gotta question whether you should be doing it.

    If it involved something I had not done before or been trained to do then i would seek help/assistance from someone who did.

    Well you know then, a PIR/ EICR/ landlords cert (not that that exists) is what it is. Just do it as per your qualifications

    PIR should be done by a competent person (not sure what you make of that term) and I have stumbled upon this link when I did a search for sample PIR form http://osborneelectricalservices.co.uk/Documents/Sample PIR.pdf
