Long story short - our electrician walked out 2/3rds of the way through a complete rewire including a new fuse box. Is it worth complaining to NICEIC? I've got another electrician willing to finish the job; NICEIC have said they can't help with my complaint if that's the case but if the original electrician doesn't come back (he's not planning to), then where does that leave me? Any advice gratefully received
 
The only way is for another spark is to give you a Eicr cause the new spark not going to give a eic test cert cause he has not done the job in the beginning a Eicr in sure it comforms.
The other spark would have told you before he picks up a screw driver for you.
Have you paid the first spark and why did he walk away there is two sides of a story.

No, this is a contractual matter and so nothing to do with the NICEIC.

The NICEIC assess a contractors work for compliance with regulations, best practice and industry standards, they also provide a system for certifying and registering completed domestic works.

Your issue, as you have described it appears to be around a broken contract, not compliance with electrical regulations.

Why did the Electrician walk away? your interference or what?
 
Next a forum members posts "I walked off a job" ..! But can the OP say what payments have been made to date etc . If the Electrician has not lost much , then either he is not getting on with the client or has been offered a much better paid job . I know many guys in various trades that are not confirming jobs at the moment until they can see which will earn them the most that week/day . Its viscous but they seem to do well

Not our interference (I found that question quite rude tbh). The fact that his team didn’t follow my very clear instructions and did their own thing is a completely different conversation and not the reason he walked out. Reading between the lines I think it was mainly a breakdown between him and our PM and we took the brunt of it. We’ve been left with a fusebox which has a sign on it saying not to turn on any more switches so no idea if it’s safe. All quite sad really
 
He would be taking orders from the PM Not yourself .As this is where it normally gets messy a lot .Clients not understanding the "Chain of command" .If its a couple .only ONE gets to gives instructions .Its always the best way and written down in quotes etc . We ask if what the issue might be as we do this day in day out .We know way more about what goes on and believe us, Customers can really be a pain ! And think they hold all the cards . If your PM has paid money out for work done pro rata then your loss is contained to some degree .If the PM has paid out more then the issue you have is with the the PM etc . Is there not a simple reason explained in a PM /email /call etc that at least lets you know whats in his head ?
 
Its like "Hunt the Egg" !!! Do you know the reason he wont come back ? But in reality it makes no difference as there is no issue to be had with NICEIC or anyone else .As its just a civil matter . So almost nothing more anyone can offer . Its a shame >No one likes it when situations like this occurs
