Re wire of a house

I am considering having my kitchen re done and I will need the electrics checked. If I need a rewiring job how much will it cost and approx how long would it take, or is it possible to just have the kitchen area rewired. The house is a 3 bed terraced.

If your wiring complies with current regulations there is no need for rewiring .If not then the relevant circuits in your kitchen can be disconnected and terminated/made safe , then new circuits can be installed to your new kitchen via a new add-on consumer unit with RCD protection . If however you prefer a full rewire then this would take approx. 5 working days and cost around £2,500.00 dependant on the quantity and types of accessories you require.

the cost can be depentand of the switches sockets and light fittings used etc but assuming it is a basic rewire with white plastic fitting the cost would range between £2,500-£3,000 and would take around approx 3 days to complete assuming clear unhindered access is available

be aware it is not always nessercery to fully rewire the house i would advise having a periodic inspection first this will cost around £60 it could save you a fair amout of money

Why not start off with an Electrical Installation Condition Report ( EICR) for all the installation then you can get an idea of what you can do in the future. Good luck.
