I would like some advice please.I recently purchased a house and wanted the
power cable moved obviously the cables had to be extended.I had several
electricians in to give quotes etc around 1 1/2 to 2 days work but none of
them could fit it in with their schedules all were busy.I ended up having
someone who quoted four days work had to be completed by the time the power
co came some three weeks away.
this chap to cut a long story short did not complete his brief spent most of
his time out of the house.when it came to his bill asked that it be reduced
on the grounds that he failed to complete his brief and that he spent very
little time at the property.I had to get some one else in to do finish the
whilst he was there I replaced a lot of the old sockets with smart ones same
with light switches.he now is threatening to report me under the part p of
my question is.
I was under the impression that as long as u did not go into the consumer
unit u could replace sockets and switches is this so or is it illegal.
A new CU is notifiable. Moving one may not be. I would suggest that as he
has extended cables to the CU it should be notifiable as the new cables do
not follow (ie cannot follow) the route of the old ones.
