Another classic issue today. Did the inspection/test few weeks ago, gave the owner of the building a report/quotation today on what needs to be attended to before a valid CoC can be issued. His reaction?
Remove all unsafe/non-compliant wiring. I politely declined. He informed ever so politely that I must do another inspection on Monday, as he will remove all the non-compliant wiring himself, as it is his property, and as per my report/quotation.
No I ask with tears in my excrement brown eyes, what does the "electrical installation" consists of on Monday? If he removes/disconnects/go mad with a side cutter the existing wiring/fixtures do I quote to re-install? Or do I inspect the existing (remaining) installation?
