Lets say, hypothetically, one was to complete an electrical installation as part of a refurbishment, and after completion of first fit a plumber drags his plastic heating piping through the joist holes so they snuggle alongside your T&Es.

You notice and rectify, the instal is no longer compromised. But this cretins plied his ugly trade on around a dozen or so now fully completed refurbs, for a builder you have a long term relationship with that you'd rather not compromise. These are all signed off and insured under your scheme provider.

Of course he'll swear blind he's never done it before but his casual indifference suggests you shouldn't trust him as far as you could throw him.

What would you do?

photograph after first fix.

all trades have to follow the reg's
if they have turned a safe install into an unsafe one, have the proof required to pass the bill onto them.

if you punctured one of the gas pipes whilst nailing cable fixings next to it, do you think the plumber would roll over and sort it for free when after some movement the customer complains of a smell of gass?
