Hi, thank you for choosing Just Answer, my name is ***** ***** I will help with your query today.
A house can be sold with 16th edition wiring, you only come unstuck when you want to make changes (put in additional sockets, extra lights, build an extension or loft conversion), since at that point the wiring for the house has to be at the current standard, and obviously having them at 18th, in a few years when 19th is standard would still mean work is required, but the lights will already be on an RCD (for example) so there is less to be done.
I personally wouldnt worry about your wiring, tell the buyers the electrics are still safe, as you could then argue the water isnt up to standard since you dont have flow restrictions on taps, or reduce flush button for toilets etc.
Please let me know if you need anything further.
No problem, should they come back with anything in response to the electrics come back to me and assist you further.
