    3years ago we got 2 electrical sockets moved by an electrician about 1.5m further along the wall. They also installed a fused spur for an electric fireplace. We never received a minor works certificate for the work. We are now moving house. I can't get in touch with the person who did the work. Do you have to have a certificate for this sort of work? If so, can I get another electrician in to test it and provide one? Thanks.

    Unless it's brought up by anyone just forget it, cross the bridge if and when you need too.

    Very unlikely anyone will query the position of a socket, how would they know it wasn't there when the house was built?

    Lots of contractors don't bother with minor works certificates, not right but thats life. The kind of paperwork solictors are looking for is the certification of that new kitchen, fuse box change or extension wiring, no one is fussed by a light point change or an extra socket. Its not a notifiable work so falls into the scope of DIY, you could have done it yourself, and technically should have tested it yourself, but very few of the millions of DIYers do.

    Just leave it and forget about it. Hope the house sale goes smoothly.
