Absolute cowboy, rushed the work, gave excuses for everything he done wrong and in the end I had to get someone else out to sort his mess, I would not recommend to anyone.

I was given misleading information about the requirements for earth leads to be 'retro' fitted on a 70s property's plastic central light fittings when I wanted a safety inspection certificate made for renting. I was asked for a £400 cash bribe in order to be given the certificate to avoid a costly rewire. I called the IET to check the info regarding this requirement and was told it is advisory only!

I've used this service when I was buying a house and needed electrics checked in a very old house. Not only did they find a fault but it helped me get a price reduction and better yet a trusted person to safely and properly make it right. I'd recommend Halls electrical to anyone. Its friendly and very professional so I think I found our family electrician for life. More...

Be very very aware!!!!
I booked Mr. Hall to do landlord Electrical safety Check. He quoted a low price. He attended as booked but have ZERO awareness of Covid safety measures and despite been told to bring and wear a mask he didn't. My tenant provided him with a mask and he doesn't know how to do social distancing. I had a 16th edition fuse box which he failed and was trying extremely hard to sell me a new fuse box at a cost of £450 to which i refused as i have been told by another electrician that 16th edition fuse box is still satisfactory and he shouldn't have failed it. He is clearly creating unnecessary works for himself. All he needed to do was a 15min job to move one of the light fuse for bathroom to the RCD side and pass the box and issue certificate. But no he kept saying all sort of things which was totally misleading and inaccurate. I had also done my own independent research on the matter in advance. He then argued that he needed new parts and then come back to change it. Two weeks on despite a number texts and promises he failed to turn up. I have since called another more professional electrician to come out and just move the fuse to the RCD side and issue certificate and stated that everything mr. hall had said was inaccurate.

I would seriously check and double check anything he says. He took his £100 and didn't issue any invoice, or even didn't provide failed certificate. His report had no serial number on.

Therefore, make sure you don't fall for his hard sell strategy and say you need a new fuse box. All older fuses boxs are still satisfactory and should put C3 “ improvement recommended” not C2 “potentially dangerous”. Although the new regulations says everything have to have RCD but this doesnt apply to older installations as long as still safe.
Mine was in a cupboard and had a fire door hence his argument of having a metal frame doesn't hold either.

My tenant also complained about his attitude that was unprofessional.

My request for 4 EIRC landlords CERT was only answered by Mr Hall . These certs take on average 4 hours each to complete . He quoted a very low price. Alarm bells.... but as the only Elecrician to answer. We went with him. On meeting him, he wear no mask and did not sanitizer his hands when asked too. I supplied a mask which stayed on minutes
My request for a VAT Was not fulfill. But I have found it , no copy of receipts was taken for his records .
Mr halls complete the 4 reports traveled to each house and sign off the electrics on our new extension. In 4 hours. Impressed ? He failed all 4 houses and then asked for cash. The next question did we want him to change fuse boards in each house. While we discussed this. He told us of his dad death Of his 23 year old niece death We said we would let him know later. As there was no other opinions we called him to give the go ahead He then asked for £600 cash for the parts we replied,send us the invoice and we would pay it .
A fortnight later when we had not heard from him. We called. He did not remember us and admitted he had forgotten about the work
He would come next week. What were the address again ?
Did he ? No . Apparently a old lady had died
So he was due today 9th March. Last night at 7.50 a text to say he’s not feeling well , if we think he is messing us around and want to get someone else he would understand 🤣🤣.
So today a professional look at one of the house and the paperwork left by
Mr Hall. He stated most of the c2/3 points were incorrect, eg labels on fuses and the box should have passed. But as a landlord we should put safety first . We agreed and he is replacing all 4 fuse boxes
What the word I’m looking for to describe Mr Hall....
Think Jessie James

We needed an electric safety check carried out on a house we are purchasing. Mark was extremely helpful in both organising the check and then carrying out work that needed doing. He was quick and efficient and gave a good price. Communication was brilliant and again very quick to get in touch and keep us filled in with what was being done. He gave us full paperwork which provided clear information. Will definitely use him again in the future! More...

Positives
Came on time
Was clear on what needed to be done.

Negatives
Was patronising when I asked questions about the works.
Reluctant to put the quote in writing.
Could not continue to completion, received an unprofessional message which ended the agreement.

Everyone seems to have had different experiences with Mark. This was mine.
