Hello All at 118 Property, I have a question, I’m in the process of buying a house to let. The Electrical safety report done in 2017 highlights the Electrical enclosure of the power unit to be of flammable material. the report shows C3, Improvement recommended.
Does this mean that it will fail it’s next test when I get it inspected again? Should I raise this challenge with the seller.
Many thanks for the wonderful informative website and information.
A Code 3 means ‘Improvement Recommended’
Something has been identified that does not comply with the latest regulations but isn’t considered dangerous or present immediate or potential danger. However, it would result in a significant safety improvement if remedied. One code C3 on its own should not warrant an overall unsatisfactory report.
