EICR – Consumer Unit installed by unqualified electrician?Make Text Bigger
I hired an electrician to do an EICR who found the Consumer Unit needed to be replaced. I then gave the job to him to complete.
However, after the job was completed, it turned out he isn’t qualified to register the installation with Building Control at the local council, so called Part P Certificate (Building Regulations Compliance Certificate), which is required by law for a noticeable change such as a new consumer unit.
I initially agreed to pay him £500, which isn’t a low price, but at the high end for such a job if anything.
What’s my best approach here?
Should I pay him? Should I move to another qualified electrician to re-do the job?
