Yeah happened to me, supprisingly only once and i've done a fair few CU changes. on the one I was doing i was doin an all RCBO board, so simply put both lighting circuits on MCB's informed client that its not right, and wrote on cert. there not bothered cause there lights work the same, but at the same time i cant start rewiring circuits on a CU change, plus they dont want the decor spoiling.
