The Power Service - Newcastle

Home Inspections

With the introduction of the Home Information Pack (HIPs) we have seen an increasing demand for Electrical and Gas inspections on properties, whether it’s for a home or for a buy-to-let.

Home owners are getting the reassurance of objective inspections
from The Power Service, knowing they can rely on the
quality of our independent inspectors with a wealth of
experience in our field. Our fully qualified engineers can carry out
inspections and provide reports to Corgi and the NICEIC standards.


The Power Service can provide the following services:

  • Electrical inspections of private homes and buy-to-lets
  • Gas safety inspections of private homes and buy-to-lets  
  • We can provide estimates for remedial work

Home Information Pack Regulations are now withdrawn

Home information Packs were withdrawn by the government with effect from 21st May 2010. The requirement for Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) is to continue as part of our committment to reducing carbon emissions under european legislation. EPCs for house sales are now valid for 10 years, bringing them into line with EPCs for residential lettings.
