got any pictures you can post. Does the homeowner have an EIC, LABC notification?

sounds like you've done your job then, remember we're not the police. Just got to put down what we find and give a expert opinion.
Must admit I've had times when I wish i could say more on the cert but cant, lol

no didn't take any pics, customer got elecsa cert but circuit details on cert don't match circuits as connected in c/u. a real messy job but all test results are ok

It depends on the plumbing TBH....this is a case where plastic inserts make a difference. If there is a break in continuity on the stopcock side of the bond in the airing cupboard then effectively the water main is not bonded(there may be an unbonded extraneous conductive part).May possibly warrent a C2 under those circumstances...or possibly a C3 with a further investigation requirement.
