ELEC­TRI­CAL work in the bath­room should rarely be at­tempted by DIYers – you may be break­ing build­ing reg­u­la­tions, as a bath­room is re­garded as a ‘spe­cial lo­ca­tion’ for elec­tri­cal in­stal­la­tions.

Play safe and use a qual­i­fied and rep­utable elec­tri­cian who will make sure the work’s safe and le­gal.

Al­though you can em­ploy a build­ing con­trol in­spec­tor from the lo­cal coun­cil or a pri­vate firm, the eas­i­est op­tion is to use an elec­tri­cian who be­longs to a ‘com­pe­tent per­son scheme’, such as NICEIC (niceic. com).

They can self-cer­tify that their work com­plies with build­ing regs and should pro­vide the com­ple­tion cer­tifi­cate you need.
