    It is illegal for anyone who is not a licenced electrician to carry out electrical work yes, but you are not liable for anything the owner does on their own house while there. If the owner just wants to look, I don't see what the problem is, but anything they *do* is definitely not on your back as you're not the owner.

    the agent is confused, or there is a communication error between you.
