As for the comment regarding the fusebox being metal to protect it from a fire in the property, total uniformed tosh!
The new consumer units are metal to contain a fire when the poorly fitted internal components start to burn.

Why wouldnt you ask the proffessional you paid to do the report. If you had he would have been able to guide you to the table in guidance note 3 of the wiring regs that give the frequency for inspections If you are to comply with those regulations, which from the thread it now appears you need to then you cant pick and choose the section of a sentence you like and ignore the rest. He has correctly quoted the recommended frequency as per the wiring regs. The recommended next inspection refers to a full inspect and test at 5 years, the change of tenant requires you to inspect for damage and test further should you find anything amiss. So he's not pulling a fast one just covering his arse (by quoting the regs) incase your 1st tenant creates a danger and you dont take due dilligence before moving in the next. You should at least be doing a walk around visual inspection of all sockets, switches and light fittings when your tenant leaves, and unless you are having a report done you need to keep a record yourself....
