    Parents got a sparky in to add additional circuits and replace old wylex fuse box with modern metal CU. No certificate of any kind issued. This is in Scotland, is this correct?

    In accordance with the Wiring Regulations (BS7671) All electrical work should have a certificate of some sort.
    Additional circuits and a new CU requires a full Installation Certificate that details the test results of each and every circuit.

    When was the job done? Give them some chance! Quite often, when busy, invoices get sent via accounts dept (or wife), but certificates can take some time to process and forward on.
