Any one come across a waterproof IP65 or similar replacement for a standard 2way switch in a 35mm recessed back box?

Just been sent this by a customer who was charged £250 for an EICR for a property they are thinking of buying.....The customer didn't understand it and wanted a second opinion.

Hi, Sorry to bother you all. Last year I visited a 4 star hotel (part of a chain) and found a shaver socket in Zone 1. It was to the left of the sink but directly above the bath. I could definitely see a risk for a small child standing in the bath.

Hi can anyone give me some advice on this. Ive been asked to convert a storeage room into a downstairs cloakroom for a diabled family member but the room contains the mains intake and meter for the property. Could this be boxed off or would it have to be moved?
For my billionth question today, does anyone know what happens if you pull the fuse on a top-up style electricity meter (you know, the one with the card or fob and you buy credits from paypoint or whatever), would the customer lose all their credits?
I read in this forum some days ago about the amended 17th and a new book. So, we have to buy a new 7671 book, a new on site guide and of course the guidance notes as well? :eek:
