Electrician didn't pull permit for electrical panel upgrade and left it 90% completed. Now what?

I hired a family friend who is an electrician to upgrade my 100 amp, 16 switch panel to a 200 amp service and separate out the switches to all singles (many were doubles and triples). He also ran a new outlet to a treadmill in the basement.

To upgrade the panel he had to cut into the foundation out by the meter and there is a sizeable hole left now where he had to tunnel in the new lines/upgrade the meter, get things above ground and run new/additional grounding wires. My house was built in mid 70s so the lines were below ground level and I guess that isn't allowed anymore, so he had to run it differently.

I haven't been able to contact him now for weeks. Luckily he left me with power, a unmarked fuse box, and just a big hole in the foundation of the house where the old wiring was.

I checked with the city and he never pulled a permit. When he left he said he would schedule inspection/call the city to get things taken care of on that front, but now he is a ghost.

How can I go about getting his work inspected/approved/permitted with the city and fill the hole properly? I don't have any paperwork from him or plans as he was a friend of my sisters and it was a side job that I thought a trusted friend was doing for me.

Also, do I need to call the energy company to get the line from the house to the pole upgraded? Someone mentioned to me that in order to get a true 200 amp service, this would be required, and after inspection the inspector would tell me or contact the energy service provider for this. Is this true or somewhat true?

I would appreciate any advice.

Edit: he said he was a master electrician and would pull the permits through his employer/boss. He doesn’t work for himself.

Edit 2: pictures of the work. here

Electricians couldn't add outlets to these bumpouts in my old house. I needed power in these areas for lighting and electronics so I used cord channels to conceal extension cords going to distant outlets. The channels (circled) follow the trimwork and look like part of architecure. No visible cords!

Electrician cut my power after I asked him to wear a mask

So basically what it says on the tin

Living in a rented property in London. An electrician came around to do some basic checks, and stormed off after I asked if he had a mask.

5 mins later the power to my flat (and only my flat) has been cut, and I then recorded him driving away immediately after that.

The new electrician sent around by the landlord has been unable to fix the problem for several hours (I won't pretend to fully understand the technicalities, though it seems the first chap has taken something from the main fuse board or the building to intentionally cut my power).

The letting agency has been dealing with it. I have the details of this guy's employer company. I'm just wondering if there's anything a bit more formal I can do than lodge a complaint with the employer.

.... As an aside, his van isn't taxed. πŸ€·β€β™€οΈ

Edit: thanks everyone, some really great advice here! Another electrician was able to sort everything out for the power, and I'll be taking some steps about the electrician in the morning.

Stay safe!

Son Wants to be an Electrician

My high school son is asking me a lot of questions about how to become an electrician. My thinking is that he should just go on a day before his senior year to our local IBEW office and talk to them and avoid non-union construction businesses.

Two electricians

So I have two electricians that quoted a job for around the same price. One guy wants half up front the other guy has had really slow responses to my messages. How comfortable do you feel with paying half the cost up front for materials? The guy who wants pay up front is younger and seems responsible enough. The other guy is older and seems to be more experienced.
