I was asked to EICR this 6 Bed house as part of the selling process and although much of the installation was in good condition the consumer unit was in a poor condition and really inacessible. The supply was inadequate given the size of the house and its modern energy requirements.
In fact the whole inside of the board was floating around and there was no means of isolation other than the supply fuse. So after discussion with the existing owner and buyer we agreed to move the DB and install a new supply.
The additional slack in the supply cable at the meter point was left intentionally as the new ownder intends to move the meter rightwards to create so they can develop the area for parking.
