A Visual Inspection Report (VIR) is a check to identify any visible signs of defects, damage or deterioration.
On tenant changeover or your annual visual inspection, you should be checking all accessories and the fuse board for any signs of electrical hazards.
If you don’t know what size cables should be in each fuse, and are unable to identify any minor signs of burning, then do the right thing; instruct a competent tradesperson. You may be held liable for hazards that are not identified.
You have a duty of care to ensure you use the correct skilled tradesmen for your maintenance. Failure to show you have instructed the correct trade could render you liable.
A VIR is supplementary to the Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR), which is required for pre-existing tenancies before 1st April 2021, and for any new tenancies.
Visual Inspections should be carried out yearly to guarantee your legal duty of care to your tenants is fulfilled.
