This should include a non invasive examination of the accessible sections of the wiring or fusebox as well as concerns such as checking

the type of electrical fittings in shower rooms or reporting on the condition of any visible wiring a representative sample of switch gear. A check for the documentation from a test on the condition of the electrical installations handled by an electrician should be part of the survey.
