Hello, I hope this isn't a silly question, but if it is, please bear with me as I'm not an electrician and I've only started learning about these things recently. Along with the other three residents, we're jointly responsible for the maintenance of the common areas of my block of flats. Electrically, there's not much in the common areas - some lights, one 13A socket and a door entry system. In looking around the basement, it seems that the electricity supply for the common areas comes via the meter into the bottom of a metal box, which I gather is called a cutout. This box looks to be iron (as it looks rusted), has a metal up/down switch, has its cover missing, and has two ceramic 15A fuseholders - one for live and one for neutral. And directly above, three cables are connected - 3 live wires to live terminal, 3 neutral wires to neutral terminal. These cables are the lighting/entry circuits - there is no consumer unit. From what I've gathered, I should phone UK Power Networks and they'll come out and replace this whole setup with something more 21st century. However I'm concerned that when they come, they might say that what is on our side of the cutout is unsafe, and as a consequence disconnect us from the mains. So I guess I'm basically asking two questions: - Is our side of this setup safe/within regulation? - And secondly, if something is wrong, will the engineer cut us off? If this is probable, should we first contact an electrician to fix our side before involving the DNO? Thanks for reading this, and all advice will be much appreciated.
