Electrical safety certs - legally whose name should they be in?
We have suggested that rather than the vendor pay an independant electrician to provide a report, that we would pay half towards an electric safety certificate, reducing the cost for the vendor, yet also saving ourselves having to pay full price for a cert.
The estate agent has stated that the certificate would have to be in the name of the vendor as she is the owner of the property at the point it is carried out. I would like the certificate to be in my name. Is the certificate still valid in the someone else's name or would I need to have a new certficate issued in my name once I complete on the property?
Any advice on this would be appreciated. Thanks
