Hi Everybody
I can't believe how kind and helpful everybody has been about this subject, Your advice had been very useful. I have emailed the commune and asked if a letter from the electrician will be enough proof that the house is electrically legal or do I have the get an independant in to check aswell. I will let you know the outcome as soon as I get a reply.
Thanks so much again

An electrician that is certified to do these inspections is what you need. So when you say "can the electrician do it" vs "should an independent do it" your are sort of missing the point. Generally they are independent electricians who have been certified to do the inspection.

For example, we bought our house from an electrician. Not that I would want him to do the inspection, but even if I did ask him to do it, he couldn't as he hasn't been certified to do so.

Hope that makes sense.
