Beware DIY Work When Buying a House

Those looking to buy a new home need to be very careful if they spot any signs of DIY work having been done. The advice given by ratedpeople.com especially applies to any heating, gas or electrical equipment which might have been installed.

They suggest getting an independent professional in to check any work which has been done to ensure it complies with regulations. Incorrect installations can lead to potentially costly and even lethal consequences according to the sales director of ratedpeople.com, Ottokar Rosenburger.
