Re: Proof of safe electrics before we buy house

Thank you for that, I worry because I do not totally trust the owner and he is bound to get the bare minimum done before he hands over the house. I do not know the electrician that he used, but I know he was local and I have checked to see if he is on the register for the approved electrical inspectors and he isn't. I am sure the Owner just wants us to take his word for it that everything is OK. Before we signed the Acte the Agent knew the electrics were dodgey in the Chalet so he made sure that a clause was written in the acte that the electrics had to of legal standard before we took on the Chalet. This I presume means that if it isn't done by the 1st April we could get out of the agreement or hold money back until it is done.
I have emailed the Notaire telling him that we want an independant inspection done and given him the url of the registered electricians in the area. I will let you know what they say when they get back to me.
Thanks again for you help
