Would that mean an immediate fail for not...

    Hi I'm having some work done at my house and the electrician has said we need a full rewire. I'm a bit surprised given that we passed an inspection 2 years ago and it raised no issues at all. We've just been told that the wiring is illegal and needs changing. Maybe i'm not understanding the...

    Inspection Cameras Any Good?

    Hello all. Does anyone have any views on using cameras to send under floorboards etc? I was thinking about getting either a borscope or cable ferret.
