I had a phone call from my brother yesterday saying he got a job to fit an electric shower for someone and he wondered whether I fancied the electrical work.

Well I do the odd job here and there, im very picky and only do non notifyable work, but really with the work im getting asked to do things have to change.

I have no problem doing the work all to 17th, I normally borrow a fluke 1651 from work to test (will buy one eventually) now thinking about this job it could possibly be a job I can get assessed for by elecsa etc.

Now obviously it will be notifyable work so I will need to get in touch with BC and pay the fee, will the customer pay? or do I do a very cheap job to factor this in? is this work ok for assesment?

I dunno quite scary!! not the work at all (god the stuff I do everyday, fitting a shower is nothin!!) but the red tape etc

If you are thinking of using the job for assessment have a chat with the customer, with your brother there. Inform him of the legal requirement to notify the work to building control and the cost implecations of this.
If he is ok, which I should think he is likely to be, charge him a fair price for the actual work and tell him the reason you are prepared to do it at a reasonable rate is because you wish to use the job for a professional assessment.

Thanks :)

Yeah thats preety much what I plan to do, obviously its unfair to charge anymore for the work just because I cant self-certify.

I will go through it with the customer and if they are ok i'll go for it

How do I go about it lol, I have no idea costs etc

If you ring building control about this job they will tell you what the charges are. Ask them to send you a copy of their scale of charges too as some local authorities scale their charges according to the cost of the work being carried out.

Hi Monty. The above applies to Weymouth and Portland BC. The cheapest fee is for work of less than £1000.00 and is £100.00+VAT.

If you send me a PM i will walk you through the process.
