The issue of costs that are the responsibility of the tenant?16:06 PM, 30th July 2019

Today the electrician came to do a 5 year routine test. Twas rewired 5 years ago, brand new plastic fuse board, “it’s safer mate”.
Now “it should be metal, fire risk!, or you could just put in RCBOs, but 4 of those will be about the same cost. Must be done in bathrooms, you have a heated towel rail, a shower, a wall heater, lights”.
So is it safe? “Yes, unless it is under the stairs, or there is a bedroom above, or it’s a fire escape route, and of course if you have any electrical work done in the future, it will have to comply then.”
So I says, do you give them a backhander to keep changeing the Regs? LoL.
Then we mentally go through the other properties, where are those fuse boards located……….?
