There are two kind of electrician licenses and task : Installation and inspection.
An electrician company is not allowed to do the very first inspection of its own work, whereas an inspector is not allowed to fix things during inspection.
An inspection of the installation is around CHF 350. By law it must be done every 20 years for residential buildings.
Pet architect says that it should be done every ten years for private individual houses and within a set period of a building changes hands through sale. And for a rental property should also be done at change of tenants.
There's a rule somewhere on admin.ch but I can't find it!

The set up under the sink is borderline acceptable as long as the sockets aren't directly under where the water pipes exit the walls, or are above that point. But he personally wouldn't accept that in one of his buildings. And the mimimum distance was 90cms, but that norm doesn't exist anymore!

So ask your landlords for sight of the last inspection certificate.
