Hi I have just been to do a EICR just some of the points I found in 30 mins CU old with on RCD only held on wall with 1 screw
all sockets surface mounted at least one screw missing out of most no earth to any of the sockets at all on earth to the CU.
Looked like their was a earth but if their was it was in 2.5 mm and could not get any reading from it at all. One light switch with 3 core but only 2 used one still live.:banghead:

Could not get earth reading from 3 sockets on 1st floor No bonding to pipe work any or meters.
Extra sockets run all over the place Shower 8.5 kw on 6mm. extra lights and stuff run all over the place began to think it was a wind up needs complete rewire to sort if you ask me.

Broken cpc then , just takes a while to trace
No bonding to pipe work any or meters. needs bonding then ?
Extra sockets run all over the place hardly unusual
Shower 8.5 kw on 6mm. sounds fine

.........needs complete rewire to sort if you ask me. not really , just a bit of time and effort to work through the defects

no worries , just charge the customer for the inspection and move on.
life can be alot easier when you only do the PIR's and not the remedials.
