    ive just had a text from my customer which follows:

    Cal, you need to power up the hob mate, first thing in the morning, its part of your remit, should be on the cert, see you there.

    Weve just finished a full rewire there, all tested, all good and passed, hob working, (its electric FYI) certs handed over. i dont quite understand what hes asking me to do, SHOULD i have written on the cert that the hob fires up ok? ive never had anyone ask for this before....

    it is an insurance job so maybe its for that??

    the bloke chatters rubbish half the time anyway but hes the man i get my money off so i need to make sure hes happy after all.....

    *EDIT*

    I best mention that the hob was on the certificate lol

    I didn't realise connecting up appliances was part of the schedule of results sheet, I thought we were only responsible for actual circuits, perhaps you are responsible for kettles, fridges and microwaves as well haha

    Who supplied the hob? I wouldn't put it on the cert but if you supplied it and it all works ok maybe just put it on the invoice, sounds like a strange thing to ask though, i would say your remit ends at the end of the circuit

    If it speeds up payment for you then get it done and put on cert hob tested and functioning correctly,job done payment in due course,some clients do come out with blurb but keeping them happy= quicker payment,then no arguments,all happy

    hob came with kitchen i think. I didnt get it anyway. the only thing i can think of what he might be on about is if ive put cooker on the cert instead of hob *school boy error*

    i cant be bothered going to the van to find the copy though, its cold out....

    I doubt i did tho i triple checked all was good on it, hes a scary customer when things arent right so id of noticed that ha........

    OH WELL.....

    You dont.
    a cert contains details only relating to the final circuits and its purpose / destination.
    who actually supplied the hob is neither here nor there , if the circuit checks out ok then by default the equipment can be connected and energized , nothing else needs to be recorded.
    Dont for 1 second be harrased by the customer as to what gets written on the cert , your the professional not him.

    thats for notes about the installation on a periodic or whatever it is called these days, not for explanations about connected appliances surely.

    I would say who supplied it counts, if i supply goods and fittings and when energised they don't work its my problem and a reason not to get paid but if the customer has supplied something and it don't work thats their problem, you still get paid because you've done your job and installed it for them
