    just in the process of having a new CU in the house and also some new circuits. the work is been done by contracters on behalf of the council i believe.

    should i get an electrical installation certificate. asked the guy who's doing it and he avoided the question a bit.

    is it actually a reg that they should issue one?

    Or who ever operates the housing - not always the council. (assuming council house?).

    If it's grant work, and you own the house, you will get the cert.

    The part P cert may go to either you or the council/housing dept......or if the spark coughs up the £1.50 duplication fee, both.

    Hi I'm building a kitchen extension and have been told by the council inspector to get a electrician that has a P cert.

    Can i get a sparky to do the wiring and then call out some one to give it a check over and give me a P cert ? and how much does one usually cost ?

    Its best to start new topics for your questions. If you use a Niceic approved contractor then they will be qualified to do the work. They'll do the work and issue you a certificate.

    That would be the simplest route. What did you tell the council you were going to do about complying with Part P when you submitted your building notice?

    No.

    But if you are going to use an electrician anyway, what possible reason would you have for not using one who can self-certify?

    andy you are an apprentice in training aren't you? have you done the work? the cert will go to the council if its a council house, so you wont see it, probably. you could ask the council for a copy, council sparks usually know their stuff.
