I’ve got a major worry at the moment regarding my electric work in my BTL. Essentially I’ve had work carried out in terms of having radiators installed (ex council house) and electrics sorted in terms of adding new plug sockets into the kitchen and installation of smoke alarms. In addition the installation of correct lightning has been used in the bathrooms. My contractor provided me with a gas safety certificate and electric certificate.
I had a contractor come over today and he told me the work for the electrics should not have been passed. There is an extractor fan with a pull cord just on top of the bath. He said that this is against regulations and I would need to take the fan out as it’s a health and safety issue due to it potentially being in contact with water.
This is the first time I’ve heard about this being an issue, nor did my original electric contractor advice or highlite this may be an issue.
I was wanting to install a tap with a shower mixer.
I may be worrying for no reason but I’m mot sure what to do.
