    There's no issue with posting a picture of a fusebox, not sure where that idea came from?

    Not really.

    Why won't the moderators let us post pictures - very odd

    I'll pm you

    One electrician asked me to send him a picture of the fusebox - which I did.
    He has said that the Fusebox must be replaced so that it conforms to the 2021 wiring regulation18th Edition RCD protection, which will cost me for £450 including a Part P building certificate.
    How can he establish this just from a picture?.

    problem is you could make changes to things you think are needed but only the inspector can really define the codes and issues

    Thanks.

    In order to better the chances of getting a satisfactory EICR report, is there anything a DIY novice ( myself ) can do before the plug sockets / fuse box is checked ?.
    ( eg. replacing a blown internal fuse ). One of the cooker plug socket holes is black - I think it might have blown a fuse

    yes, that part of the installation should be inspected imho

    Thanks guys.

    If there is an outhouse in the back garden which has plug sockets, is it compulsory in an EICR inspection to have that tested also? (even though it will be locked and any tenants will not have access to it ).

    lack of anti surge or spd is a C3 or comment

    But the remedial work to get a satisfactory certificate could easily cost £1000! You may well need a new panel ("fusebox"), anti surge devices, all sorts of other work potentially depending on the age of the installation.

    ask around but I would budget £200

    had somebody call me earlier ... he had been quoted £76 and for his flat I indicated a provision minimum charge of £150

    once I pointed out what was required and the detail you need to go into he’s probably going to use me

    what ever you decide, do a google search for the electrical safety council best practice guide no 4

    its full of guidance on what codes should be used for different types of faults - which should avoid the situation of the cowboy inspector applying C1 and C2 codes to issues that should only be C3’s

    Thanks Neelix. Approximately, how much should the cost for an EICR inspection and report be, for a three bedroom house?.
    ( I know that some charge over the market rate )
