My EICR summary says that the installation requires improvement and does not meet the needs of the modern user and recommends a rewire. Does this mean it is unsafe?

Left double quote

If the property does need a rewire, the EICR should have several items with a C1 or C2 classification code

Answered by Sarah, Electrical Safety Expert

If the property does need a rewire, the EICR should have several items with a C1 or C2 classification code. The summary does not make this clear so you should ask the electrician who carried out the inspection for further clarification in order to justify the rewire.
