Re: Proof of safe electrics before we buy house

Hi Everybody again,
I think I am going to email the Notaire today. To date what has happened is that the owner has appointed a local electrician, he had done the work that is needed but I can't see that he is registered to do the inspection. The Agent has asked me to get proof that the work has been done by writing a letter to the electrician myself. Really the owner should be producing the proof, I should not have to try an find it myself. The Owner is a Belgian so he might not know the form.
I am going to ask the Notaire that we want an official inspection from a registered electrician and we want to see the cert before we hand over any money.
I think what was going to happen was the Owner was going to say he has done the work and that we take him on his word. This is not enough for us so thank you everybody for your comments and advice, you have set me on the right track.
Thanks
Swinburne
