What Happens if I Don’t Pass the Inspection?

Many people can be put off from arranging a thorough electrical inspection Balham has to offer because they fear that their electrical installations might not conform to the current electrical standards. If there are any major defaults within an installation that can cause a health and safety risk, then the electrician will perform a temporary fix during the inspection to ensure your safety. If the property doesn’t meet the electrical requirements, then you won’t be issued with an electrical certificate until it does.

You will be informed of any remedial works that need to be completed to receive your electrical certificate. Lola Electrical can provide you with a free no obligation quote for any and all remedial works that need to take place. If you fail to get these changes made within the appropriate time limit, then you will not receive an electrical certificate which means that by law, you cannot rent out your property or have public use the electrics within a commercial building.
