DH is of the opinion that both appliances should be separate. The hob would work on 13 amps, but probably not if you've got all four rings on at the same time. As for the oven, its just not right. There's no way it should be on anything less than 30amp. He also doesn't think you need a part p, thats usually only for new builds, not just kitchen refits. Hope thats helped a bit.

My internet went down too!

The Part P isn't as important as the 2391, I would want someone who can test and inspect, the min qualification for domestic installation is Part P but ideally you want better than that, JIB registered. And yes the person who did the work should have been qualified. As for the cost it depends what he has to do to get to the wiring and how easy it is to put another ring in.
I would charge at least £125.00 but i guess it depends on the area you're in as much as anything.

Anyone installing in a domestic property needs to be able to test and inspect their own work, builders can't sign off and issue certificates, they can do it and get an electrician to sign it off, but if you were then killed as a result the electrician not the builder would be charged (excuse the pun) so not many will put their names to other peoples work.

If you google NICEIC Testing & Inspection, those are the sparks I would want working in my home, they have taken the 2391 course (sorry should have explained that).

Yeah take photo's and report them to trading standards.
Totally unacceptable.
