I'm in the UK and in the process of buying my first house (early 1900's victorian terrace). I paid for a home buyers report which came back with some areas for improvement, one being the fuse box. The surveyor noted the following;
The fuse box is located in the front living room. The fuse box is dated. The electrical system was not tested. It should be tested by a competent electrician, NICEIC registered, the condition ascertained and any necessary work carried out.
Please see below for a picture of the fuse box (apologies for the bad quality);
- can someone confirm what i'm looking at?
- am I any any immediate danger or need to upgrade this?
I know the small white box on the ground is the keypad to enter a code when electric is purchased - that's as far as my electronics knowledge goes :)
I know absolutely nothing about electrics, hopefully someone here can help!
