An old customer has just rung me about her rewire ........... done by a spark who has failed to provide any certification or Part P notification

Her buyers want to exchange this week but won't without the necessary documentation

He's promised her certification for months now and a search on the competent persons scheme register suggests he's not registered and Linked in suggests he's now employed by a multi national company

So the only winners are the solicitors - who will make charges irrespective of the outcome of the sale ....

I suppose the only options are the seller takes out an indemnity policy or pays for an EICR.

The owner could get you to carry out a periodic inspection and give the EIC to the solicitor and take out indemnity insurance on the electrical installation the cover the missing part p registration/notification. Might be worth suggesting it to the customer so they can speak to their solicitor..... You might be able to save the sale for them.

Why is now down to them? The customer has now got in touch with Murdoch looking for a solution....Murdoch, if willing might be able to provide that solution.

I've offered an EICR but not for at least 2 weeks as I'm rather busy ....

Can’t you just pull up outside and do it from your van between jobs? :D

OOOH! You mean the system the surveyor used on my house when we bought it. He managed to spot the roof on the porch was incorrect - it was fine. He missed the perfect electrics - T&E melted into the wall above the CCU. The clever bit is the layers of company responsibility when you chase their lazy arse with legals.

Sorry - off topic and a personal rant. Off to boil a RIBA rep in oil
