Part P Notification required ??


Postby theCoxwellinn » Tue Jul 17, 2007 11:12 am

Hi everyone, just found this website and have a question to pose:

On a house we are purchasing we have just received the list of fixtures and fittings that are included/excluded.

Apart from being a bit surprised to learn that the vendor intends to replace all the light fittings and light switches with standard (their words) I am wondering whether the extent of these works needs a qualified electrician and certification.

Ant thoughts anyone ??

IF THE WIRING IS NOT ALTERED AND THE REPLACED
ARTICLES IN THIS CASE STANDARD FITTINGS AND SWITCHES ARE
CONNECTED AS EXISTING FITTINGS AND SWITCHES R THEN THIS IS
NOT NOTIFIABLE PART P WORK.
HOWEVER IT WOULD BE WORTH CHECKING WITH THE VENDOR IF
A PERIODIC INSPECTION OF THE WIRING HAS TAKEN PLACE BEFORE THE SALE. THIS WOULD INDICATE THE CONDITION OF THE WIRING
AND ANY REMEADIAL WORK REQUIRED BEFORE SALE IS COMPLETED.
AS FOR A QUALIFIED ELECTRICIAN DOING THE WORK AND PRODUCING
A MINOR WORKS CERTIFICATE FOR THE LIGHTING , YOU WOULD BE
WELL WITHIN YOUR RIGHTS TO ASK FOR THIS TO BE DONE AGAIN
BEFORE SALE IS COMPLETED. YOU AT LEAST HAVE AN INTREST IN
INSISTING THAT ANY ELECTRICAL WORK CARRIED OUT HAS BEEN DONE
IN A PROPER MANNER WITH DOCUMENTATION TO VERIFY CHANGES.

Thanks Blakey,
The house was only built in 2004, so it is fair to assume that the wiring is in good order :!:
However getting a small works certificate from a qualified leccy sounds to be good advice.
