Rang my local LABC today about notifying the rewire i have to do, they said they want either 150 quid + an additional inspection fee + i have to provide them with drawings of where everything is going, or that i should just get someone to self cert it for me, which begs the question should these folks be giving advise?

Im no closer to being able to start thanks to the inept people at LABC, no spark in their right mind would sign off on anyone elses work, even if i have already tested it all myself once.. dont know how people are supposed to get jobs ready for assessment when the replys you get from the people in charge is as clear as mud.

Our BC just use a nominated local spark to inspect, not much different to getting someone to do it for you. May even be cheaper. You could always use a green if you feel good enough and qualified enough to do it.

u can still apply even though u do not have ur 17th edition. as long as u will have it within (i think) 6 months there should be no prob.. just check the NIC web site

Some council tenants are really nice and considerate!!!!

They leave metal foil trays, fish & chip papers and dirty nappies on the floor to collect the brick dust. :(

Their homes normally look cleaner after I finished the job than before I first started. :^O

Anyway hope all you peeps are good as I havent posted on here for a while.

Amazing really isnt it how the supposed enforcers dont even have a clue... just puts me out having to tell them how to do their own jobs and delays me getting started, which will inevitably make me look a prat to the customer.

He also said they wouldnt accept any C&G certs/jib cards as proof of competence.

tell them its upto to them to arrange I&T, but you will meet them half way and issue EIC (which you should be doing anyway)

Going to call them back tomorrow and state what the circular says plus the guidance given to LABC on page 11 of Approved Doc P. EIC will be issued because i havent given up and bought a horse and 10 gallon hat yet. (didnt include price of carrots in the quote either ROTFWL)
