Shocking Electrics

When we visited a property we expect to acquire we think we noticed that there are doubts as to then safety of the electrical system - does a the surveyor report on the electrics?

When preparing a Leatherhead Home Survey your surveyor will usually comment on the state of the electrics if it is clear that they are in a less than satisfactory condition.
