Yes, if you obey the 80% rule (your circuit should be rated at 25% more than the load), you are very safe. If there is any question, grab a cheap (<$20) IR Thermometer, run the charger for an hour and check the temps everywhere.
Your house is probably 15 amp breakers for wall outlets. JLR's EVSE is 10 amps. You would still be very safe at 12 amps. Building codes have some overkill built into them. A 15 amp circuit will take almost double that in ideal conditions. They must allow for MFR variations in components, very hot weather, multiple hot wires in a conduit, etc.
But on old outlets, especially GFI, I like to replace them high quality brand new outlets (cheap and a do it yourself project, or cheap for an electrician) for EV use since very few plug in devices run for more than 1 hour constantly, and as a wall outlet get older, the blades inside lose their tension and build up tarnish and carbon.
I'm paranoid, which is why I like to do my own wiring.
