Re: Proof of safe electrics before we buy house

Hi
I have just had a reply from the Commune and this is what they said, it was in French but I used Google translate
Hello,

'The seller is responsible to carry out the inspection of the electrical installation. Indeed, it is mandatory to obtain a certificate of a licensed electrician for your records.

You can submit this certification to control if desired. The information comes from our Vice President who made those checks in his professional setting. '

I have emailed the Notaire and he emailed me back saying we will have an official inspection and he isn't going to hand over any money unless we are happy, eg got the certificate.
We are getting there, thanks everybody
Swinburne
