Basel - Light Fittings...

Hi all,

I am looking to get some lights fitted in our apartment. Is it law to have a certified electrician to do this (ie. For insurance validation etc?) or can I do it myself? At the same time, does anyone have any recommendations of someone who could help me out? We had an offer the other other day from a local electrician which was very high. Much more than I expected, even after 4 years of being used to rates for services in Switzerland!

In total 5-6 light fittings in an attic flat - 1 is a bit awkward to access over stairs, in Gundeli area.

Cheers in advance

Alan

No, there's no need to get an electrician to do this, as long as you can do a competent job yourself.

Yeah, just when you let your guard down you get Switzerlanded all over again.
