Extension leads are out of scope for a periodic inspection unless specifically requested. However, if they are being used as a result of too few sockets in a property then this should be reported on the Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR).
If you are using extension leads, follow our guidance for using them safely and never overload sockets. You can find out more here.
You can find a registered electrician to carry out a periodic inspection here.
