Re: Proof of safe electrics before we buy house

The actual law is that houses must have their electrics checked every twenty years. However, if a house is being sold and it has not been checked within the past 5 years it must be checked again. There is no stipulation as far as I could make out that the seller must pay, although that certainly sounds like the most sensible course of action.

The law itself is called:

Ordonnance du 7 novembre 2001 sur les installations électriques à basse tension (Ordonnance sur les installations à basse tension, OIBT)

and the reference number is: 734.27

Can be looked at here:
