Defect Notice Rectification

In an inspection of your home or network, a defect notice may be issued if your electrical installation does not meet safety standards or if the electrical service main cables, brackets, or other fittings are deemed hazardous.

It is important to be aware of the dangers associated with defective work or wiring. Burnt out switchboards, faulty wiring and broken electrical brackets are all examples of fires waiting to happen. Don’t leave power issues to chance and have your electricity connections checked regularly.

What Does a Defect Notice Mean?

A defect notice may be issued if the insulation on your cabling is damaged by the sun, or UV damaged mains, wiring is incorrect or faulty, trees or branches are too close to electrical wires, electrical brackets are damaged, connection boxes are loose or if your fascia board is rotten.

The defect notice requires a level 2 electrical contractor to fix the listed defects within 21 days. If you fail to complete the required work on time, your electricity supply can be cut off.

If the work was completed, contact one of our Level 2 electricians for final repairs. The power will have to be reconnected and the repairs have to be reported to the power supply company.

Benefits of Defect and Rectification Service

Our services include installation of additional safety switches, rectifying damaged overhead or underground power lines, metering inspection, electrical appliance upgrades and the repair of other level 2 electrical hazards.

It is important to note that if an electrical inspector finds any non-compliance with the wiring installed during an initial home inspection, this may result in the disconnection of the power supply, damage to the property, loss of insurance and even injury or death as a result of an electrical fire.

Ensuring Safety
Defect notices are issued when electrical systems or components in your home are found to be non-compliant or potentially hazardous. Rectifying these defects is crucial to ensure the safety of your family and property. By addressing the identified issues promptly, you can mitigate the risk of electrical accidents, fires, or other hazards.
Compliance with Regulations
Compliance with electrical regulations is essential to meet legal requirements and industry standards. Ignoring defect notices can result in penalties and potential legal consequences. Rectifying the identified defects ensures that your home adheres to the necessary codes and regulations, giving you peace of mind and avoiding any compliance-related issues in the future.
Preventing Further Damage
Defects in electrical systems can worsen over time if left unaddressed. Ignoring defect notices can lead to more severe issues, such as electrical failures, circuit overloads, or short circuits. Rectifying the defects early on prevents further damage to your electrical infrastructure and minimises the risk of costly repairs or replacements in the future.
Protecting Property Value
Resolving defect notices promptly is essential for maintaining the value of your property. Potential buyers or tenants often conduct thorough inspections and may be deterred if they discover unresolved defects. By rectifying the identified issues, you demonstrate that your property has been well-maintained, enhancing its market appeal and preserving its value.
Peace of Mind
Knowing that your home's electrical systems are compliant and safe provides peace of mind. Rectifying defect notices ensures that you and your family can live in a secure environment, free from the worry of electrical hazards. It allows you to confidently use your electrical appliances and systems without the fear of potential risks or failures.

Have to say it's rare to come across any companies such as selectrical services these days. Their custom service is excellent and backed with prompt service. They would text you to inform when their electrician would arrive. When they promise something, they would keep their promise. We had really good experience having them to carry out electrical work.

Emergency call out today, our switchboard started to smoke and our power had to be turned off. With temperatures over 35 and elderly parents it was extremely stressful.

I will highly recommend you!
