    Hi there,

    I have this godawful mess of an electrical cupboard that was half done by the developer of a period property we bought last year.
    I guess I need a qualified electrician to touch anything in there but could such a person exist who could also finish it?
    A board on the back, cabled pipes and painted to look nice. Removing the old piece of wood it currently sits on also.
    I'm in St Albans - message me if you think you could do the job or knows someone who could.

    that should not of been done like that the consumer unit should be fixed to the wall and all cables coming from top and bottom to maintain fire rating you should call them back in and demand its done properly with certificates.

    I'm pretty sure that's not going to be possible as the main incoming is fixed to that...
    Unless you're prepared to pay a lot to the grid supplier for your area!

    I say that as a DIYer, so I'm open to correction.

    My energy company installed the smart meter a month ago and replaced and the main box and inspected everything so I'm sure it's safe enough.
    Surely someone can remove that unit and put it back on the renovated area?
