Just tell her you are a DIY person and that you are not qualified to issues certificates.
If she is not happy tell her you will put them back to where they were.
Because if you doing professionally, then you should have made tests before starting.
Making tests afterwards could open a can of worms.
I would in your situation plead ignorance and you did it in good faith.
Did you do for free?

sounds like non-notifiable work so is nothing to do with the council really.

i was under the impression that i didn't need to issue a certificate
should still issue a Minor Works Cert i'm afraid...

aint you got access to a meter and you can test it yourself?

oh, and where abouts were the sockets?

kitchen would be notifiable, l/room wouldnt.

and bathroom would mean you got one mutha of a bathroom and a good working knowledge of the 17th edition:D
