this is relatively easy to deal with.
Write to the company and tell them that unless you get the
electrical certificate by Friday, 25 October 2013, you will, without further

provide you with the necessary certificate and you will seek the costs from
them and pursue them through the County Court if necessary.
I would head the letter "Letter Before Action. Urgent Action
Required. Legal Proceedings Imminent". It is of no legal effect but might focus
their mind or wake them from their slumbers!
Sometime after 25 October, if they have not got back to you with
the certificate, I would arrange an electrician to come round to inspect and
test, pay his bill and then ask them up for the money. I would give them seven
days in that letter and if they don't pay up, I would issue Small Claims Court
proceedings against them without further notice which you can do quite easily

PS. I use voice type, voice recognition typing because I only
type with two fingers and it would take me ages. Sometimes, a computer does not

sense. It is me losing it, not you. Just ask if anything is not clear please.
