Home Buyers - BUYER BEWARE!

Between 2014-15 it is reported by Electrical Safety First that there were nearly 2.5 million residential sales.

However, research carried out by Electrical Safety First found that only 37% of buyers had the electrics checked before purchase.

One in five believed that electrical checks were included in the recommended home survey report and just under half were unaware that checks were needed at all.

Over a third of home buyers then went on to discover electrical problems that they were not aware of before purchase - something that could easily be avoided by getting a registered electrician to inspect the electrics and issue an Electrical Installation condition Report.

Their article goes on to explain how Sean had bought his first house last year and was thrilled to get onto the property ladder.

However, he then goes onto explain that his excitement was short-lived:

"A few month after moving in, my fuseboard started sparking, so once I had managed to switch it off, I calle an electrican over for some advice.   Ive now had to fork out almost £10,000 to vcover the cost of the damage, and to rewire the entire house.   I can't help thinking that all this could have been avoided if I had just had an Electrical Installation Condition Report done before buying my home."

I needed a job done really 'sooner rather than later' and at a weekend too! Karen came out, assessed what needed to be done and set to work straight away. Job done, cleared up and on her way within the hour! Not often you get that service! Certainly will keep her number on my mobile and recommend to anyone who needs an electrical job done!

Our timer on our central heating went and my husband was miles away at work,it was early evening when I phoned karen, but straight away she told me not to worry,to send a photo of the timer and she'd sort it out,and she did, an electrician came out with a new timer fitted it and was gone, brilliant service from start to finish, will definitely use them again and would highly recommend them

Di, Paddock Wood

I had a number of light fittings that weren't working and, on a recommendation from a friend, called Bright Spark. Karen called in to evaluate and price the work the same day and sent one of her colleagues, Peter, to carry it out before the end of the week. It was a very impressive response and the work was done to an excellent standard. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Bright Spark and it's reassuring to know such a reliable firm exists the next time I need an electrician.
