My house was rewired 6 years ago, but an electrician has told me that the wiring is unsafe. What should I do?

If the house was rewired just six years ago, it should be safe

If the house was rewired just six years ago, it should be safe. 

You can get this confirmed by having the electrical installation inspected by a qualified electrician. They will issue you with an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) that will highlight any hazards with the current installation. 

If there are any problems with the installation, you should take this up with the electrician who originally carried out the work - if they do not respond to requests you can contact the scheme operator they are registered with and they can help you.
