I have recently applied for selective licensing as required by the council. After submitting relevant documents, the council have rejected the EICR as the contractor is not registered to carry out inspections, only domestic installation.
I have subsequently managed to verify this too with NICEIC who have asked me to supply them with a copy of EICR with their trademark to warn him not to use it for EICR, only it’s too late now as I’ve paid the contractor for EICRs on 3 properties.
I now have to have the properties inspected again by a registered contractor, as the ones I hold are apparently invalid.
I would like to know if the unregistered contractor has behaved unlawfully and whether I can take any action against him?
He is now ignoring my emails etc.
Any advice would be most welcome, and beware!
