I have already said I can't carry out works unless this is corrected but just wanted to make sure. Just hope nobody else comes along and changes the fuse board for her

Peter, in all honesty and please dont take offence, but this is the most important part of ANY installation and its a question that you really shouldnt have to ask!

If they wont pay for bonding installation or upgrade then it is in your best interest to walk away.

After all, its your name on the certificate and you in the dock if it ever came to court.

Of course, you could always price for the CU change and include an amount to cover the bonding.

Also agreed ! imagine if this job is one of the ones the NIC chose to inspect on an annual ! :( sods law it will be ! Id remind her of the dangers that could happen and show her the regs book and if she wants she can call Building control or NIC etc
