On the otherhand seeing as the local authrority was the vendor & would have carried out such work themselves - it may be a case of Caveat venditor Let the Seller beware

Hmm.....shall I see what the outcome of this will be for tomorrow and let you know what they say ?
Just need a bit of guidance really where to take it from there, but to be honest it doesn't look too promising on the records side of things not when they informed me on the phone the last time I spoken to them that they only have information going back to 4 years......

I will let ya know and thanks so much I appreciate all your feedback..

Cheers.
Di.

hmmm interesting conundrum here.

Terminator is our resident Council expert so pay attention to him Di.

Part P certification didn't come into effect until 2005 so any work done before that date isn't covered by it.


Now the date that fuse panel was replaced is important, also is it a fuse panel or does it have re-settable trip switches? I would expect any competent electrician replacing a fuse panel/consumer unit to do a full insulation test and notice aging cables.

A basic house buyers survey probably wouldn't show up electrical faults other than blown bulbs or faulty switches.

Lefty is refering to the solicitor or legal firm that handled the legal side of things when he mentions conveyacing.

Hi and thanks for your reply.

I have just checked out the fuse box and which is based in an understairs cupboard where you basically have to crawl to get to it, but there are no dates whatsoever on the unit, and its just the unit with several switches such as for each room, with a trip switch based on the side.

As I mentioned in our earlier post, we moved in, in 2001 and had 2 days to do so where this is what they had added as informed.

Now regarding our solicitors what particulars should we have due to this when we purchased in 2003 ?
Thanks.

Di.

I'm not referring to Part P Certification which is now a statutory requirement. I'm referring to insurance certification which any competent tradesman will have & should have been asked for

Right no phone call or emails today from the council as promised.

I left a message where I was informed someone would get back to me and rang a few times and left emails.
Perhaps the emails are slow getting to me I don't know but will check again tomorrow and ring again otherwise.

Received a phone call yesterday with apologies due to them going over the deadline of 20 working statutory days.
They informed me because of the office move they had to wait for the files to come through.

Should know something by tomorrow, hopefully anyway.

Will post as soon as I hear.
