Is there such a person as an electrical wiring inspector?
I mean someone who will check on not only the safety of the wiring but
also the general structure (ie whether it's likely to cause electrical
problems in the future such as tripping fuses and the like)?
And more to the point, do they charge much? :)
I've recently moved into a property that has one one major problem
with the wiring and still has the odd 'hiccup' (a light in an
out-building, when switched on, blows a trip switch; intermittent
slight flickering of lights in the house itself; and the mysterious
case of a tripped fuse on the lighting circuit this morning).
All in all, I think whoever wired the place bodged the job a bit (some
of the wiring is obviously new, and some a bit older).
I am somewhat loathe to call out an electrician to do the inspection
as, knowing my luck, I'll end up with one who recommends the maximum
work when all I want doing is the basics to ensure that we don't get
any more wiring problems and that it's safe.
I live near Carmarthen in Wales if it's of any relevance, out in the
