Did you know that…
The majority of surveys you pay for on a property do not go in depth when it comes to checking the electrical layout of the property and the person checking it does not even look at the internal wiring of the property.
More to the point the person checking it, unless a qualified electrician & qualified inspector, is not even allowed to remove electrical points or consumer unit covers to inspect the wiring and systems underneath. Why take the risk of buying a property you have to spend thousands on, when you can get the price reduce off the sale price of the property?
So far this year we have attended 54 homes in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, who have called me in to do work having recently moved in. Only to find the house actually needs a complete rewire costing anything up to £6000.00.
The house owners actually paid for a survey on each of these cases and each one did not recognise the fact the property needed totally rewiring. Only certain types of electrical contractors who have passed the highest graded technical exams and have extensive experience in the electrical industry can give a expert opinion and provide a written report on the electrical state of a property along with rectification costings.
A standard electrician cannot provide this so make sure you get the correct person for the job. An electrical inspector must view the property and this is the person who conducts the survey. I work independently of any estate agents. I work for you the customer and as such my report is not biased towards the sale of the property. It is factual, evidential and professional. Just what you require when determining whether or not to buy a property in this day and age. I am not on commission for the sale of the property as I work for you for the fraction of the cost of a regular survey conducted by estate agents.

Rewiring a property
Imagine moving into your new house in Harrogate that you think all is well only to find that it needs a complete rewire which involves:
- Walls & Ceilings being chased and damaged
- Decorating ruined
- Skirting boards being removed
- Carpets & Laminate floors being lifted up.
- Floorboards being taken up.
Why has this happened?
This happened because anyone can put a new style socket and light switch on a wall and cover up a potential mess of non earthed wiring underneath. It is only until you check underneath the surface that you find the errors which can cost a small fortune to put right. As a 17th edition electrical inspector I am qualified to say in writing the electrics inside a property have to meet a certain standard. If they do not then my written reports save you money off your new home as I make written estimations on correcting the wiring. That means you can take my report back to the estate agent and inform them your offer is now going to be less due to the amount of corrective work needed to make the electrics correct. That means you do not have to shell out unnecessary funds and force the home owner to correct the work.Or you simply do not buy the property.
Contact me today 0800 7797472 / 0770 3020260 and I will arrange through your estate agent to visit your potential new home. I will thoroughly inspect it and provide you with a written fault list and a professional estimation on how much it will cost to put it right.
