Posted By: djhPosted By: Ed DaviesIt might take a while to find an electrician who'll actually sign, though.What are the rules on what lighting you must provide? Can you fit lots of 5A sockets and plug regular standard lamps in to them whilst it is signed off? Then plug something else in afterwards
Posted By: borpinDon't actually need to plug anything in for it to be signed off.

Posted By: rhamduIt is now possible for the electrician to meet the regs by fitting cheap LED or CFL bulbs, which the householder immediately whips out and replaces with halogens.
