Part P, implications for householders

We here at Hampton Electrical Systems Ltd are fully part p registered and have full approval with the NICEIC for our electrical contracting business in Stroud.  

Householders are legally responsible for ensuring that work carried out in their homes complies with the Building Regulations.  The onus is on them to be aware of the need to employ only tradesmen who comply with the requirements of Part P and other relevant Building Regulations.  Ignorance is no excuse in the eyes of the law.  In addition, householders may encounter difficulties in selling their properties if they are unable to produce documentary evidence that electrical work complies with the Building Regulations.  The facility now exists for searches to be carried out on all building work in dwellings to ensure compliance with the Building Regulations.
