    Got a call from a customer, electrician has condemmed the electrics and they wanted a second opinion.
    Got on site and apparently there was a fault on the lighting circuit, the electrician they called out said it was dangerous and unscrewed all the light fittings and and just snipped the wires leaving bare cables poking out of the ceiling.
    He left saying that they will sent them a quote for a rewire and the work that needed to be done.
    As all the light fittings has been cut off I am unable to test the lighting circuit for the fault.
    Personally I would just disconnect the lighting circuit from the CU and remove the fuse wire as it's rewireable fuse.
    I haven't been in this game long and I've never issued a danger notice, but isn't this a bit extreme??
    What would be the best way to condem the electrics?

    the guy wants locking up. the customer should sue him. he has no right to sabotage the customer's installation in that way, touting for work. remove the fuse, yes. then it's up to the customer to decide whether or not to refit it.

    I've put in my price for a rewire but this company is going in at a silly price, customer said about £1000 for CU and rewire but that could also be the customer trying to blagg it. It's a 3 bed house.

    I wouldve called the police as he was cutting them fittings down, He has no right to do that and that in my opinion is definately criminal damage, it's bullying and scaremongering on the upmost level.
    So have they still got his number? please tell me it wasnt just a mobile?? and who is he registered with??
