the fucker had his head and shoulders up in the attic where its clearrly visible on the edge of the hatch opening and on the joist just up on the inside. he must be blind if he couldnt see it.
ineptitude at large. mr exterminator said he's successfully helped people take cases aginst poor pre-purchase surveys in the past and that we'd have a strong case.
only problem is is that our solicitor recommended him.
holy fuck, no earths installed is a massive risk to injury / life / fire. shit that would have you up in front of a judge.
yep - some of the plugs were earthed locally at the board, but not properly grounded outside. none of the lights were.
The worst thing is we had another electrician in after we moved in, who would have installed/moved various things. he said or did nothing about the earths. We only found out when we had a local decent guy in who fixed it. I mentioned at the time was there a process to report the guy who saw the mess and left it as was, but he (the good guy) was pretty cagey about it
