What relevance is NICEIC though? I thought they were just a guild for
electricians, they still work to BS7671 which is the UK standard for
electrical installations? (or am I missing something).
I would argue that the NHBC has its place, given that the mortgage lenders
seem to regard it as a necessary to ensure any defects are rectified. Don't
forget if the builder is registered, and folds, NHBC conducts repairs etc
should they become required.
I don't however assume it covers everything, I called them (NHBC) up about
the wiring, and they were quite vauge, and just referred me to the BS7671
spec as being required to be met.
