Councils using ‘Intelligence’ to track down low EPC properties and fine £5,00015:08 PM, 29th March 2021

I have a building in multiple use (shop and a couple of flats) that I have recently had a fire risk assessment carried out on. One of the recommendations is a full electrical safety inspection which is going to take 4-6hrs.
Whilst it is possible to isolate each individual unit from the main incoming supply into the building, the electrician tells me he will need to turn of the main supply (killing the power to all three units).
One of the flat residents has marine fish, tens of thousands of pounds worth, (probably enough to buy the flat outright, bizarrely) and is insisting I provide a generator, which I do not have and the inspection is tomorrow morning.
Does anybody have any comments about what the legalities of this situation should his fish die?
