    Issues getting documents from house seller 16th Mar 17 at 10:56 AM
    Im not sure if im posting this in the right place really but hopefully someone can help!

    We are in the process of buying a house that is 2 years old. We have had a home buyers report done which has advised us that we need to get a copy of the electrical certificates which we have asked our solicitor to request.

    The answer we keep being given is that it is covered by the "Premier Guarantee" which they have sent us a copy of. However this does not contain a certificate to say that the electrics comply, it says they are covered.

    Should we accept this or is this likely to cause us an issue in the future?

    Thanks in advance!

    The cert is for older properties to say the electrics are up to current specs and safe blah blah blah.

    A 2 year old property is unlikely to be faulty or below spec since it's been signed of by the developer. Even if you have problems down the line, as the solicitor has pointed out repairs are covered by the guarantee.
