To minimise disruption set some ground rules with your electrician before work begins:
Within 30 days of the work being completed, you will also receive a certificate that confirms that the work complies with Part P of the Building Regulations. If you used a NICEIC electrician, the certificate will carry the NICEIC logo and the name of the firm you used. It is a legal requirement to comply with Building Regulations, so you should ensure that your electrician is registered with a government-authorised Part P scheme. If, during the course of the work, you require alterations or additions to the installation, request a fixed price. Finally, check with your electrician if the local Public Supply Authority will be required to disconnect and re-connect the electrical supply to which there may be additional charges.
Most electrical installations carried out in a property are now notifiable - the local authority building control must be notified prior to the work being carried out. The exception is if it is carried out, and certified by a person registered with a government-authorised competent scheme such as NICEIC. Failure to comply with Part P is a criminal offense and local authorities have the power to require the removal or alteration of work that does not comply with regulations.
