It's one of these jobs, if you wern't registered you would just do it, but being a reg spark makes you think. But work is work at the moment.

Going to find out tomorrow, would have to be cash no paper work that is for sure, going to suggest rcd sockets for the ones that could provide for outside,
and i will do the bonding.

also going to check with my governing body what they say

Nothing wrong with old Wylex boards and they were permitted under 16th. New for old seems OK.
I personally would not do the Job if the Earth bonding was not up to scratch.
I would also say this Job requires a minor works cert were you can make comments on installation RCD etc.
So unless he is happy to bring the Earth bonding up to current standards (and with no RCD that includes cross bonding as well) Don't touch it with a barge pole.
