Hi all new to the forum go easy,
I’ve been asked to finish a job off (going to look at it tomorrow to see how visible the install is) just wondering how we go about this? Obviously i will test before anything would be done but what to do after just issue a PIC and tell the customer to notify building control? Or just walk away
As far as I’m aware this other spark has been a major let down and not what they were after and Has since left not to return I’m told it’s first fix and that’s about it

If it's only been first fixed, you should be able to give it a good coat of looking over. See what you think and judge accordingly. If you feel happy, go ahead.

Be aware that the other reason the other spark didn't come back is that he didn't get paid.
Worth looking into it first?

This is an interesting conundrum and one I come across at least once a month.
if the job is barely started I adopt as my own and more or less start again.
if the job is further progressed this is where it gets interesting , as you either have to adopt it as your own without seeing the cable runs etc
or issue an eicr for the house once you tie up the lose ends and that’s about all you can do...

Cash up front from the home owner if the job smells fishy

from what I’ve gathered he’s had money up front to cover first fix gear and some labour ect and has just took the Micky with the whole job and they don’t want him back and I think it’s pretty covered up as plasters outta there Friday so could be a can of worms

There might be too sides of a story, on this.

you can IR the new cables if you are concerned about damage etc

I took on half Finished rewire a few years back and I spent the first half a day IR testing all the buried cables and popping up floor boards to inspect the cabling.
it can be done

If I take a job on there and then. I would ask the customer the bacs a payment in the bank after you done the testing. you never no, Just in case they knock you. Never trust a customer when they we had to get rid of him, blar blar.
