How much is it to move an internal non load bearing wall?

Hello, I was wondering if you could provide me with a rough estimate as I am looking to buy a flat but one of the bedrooms is slightly small and was wondering whether it was worth trying to increase the size by moving the wall into the living room by about 0.5metres.

*** edit. Sorry size of wall is 2.1m wide. Height is probably about 7foot? Normall ceiling height. There is a light switch on the wall also

you dont say size of wall ????? i would say be realistic and allow yourself about a grand to include removing wall, rebuilding wall ,replastering ,redecorating , new flooring ,new skirting ,removal of rubbish ,500mm doesnt sound much but actually will make a big difference ..good luck

It depends on length of wall, if any doors in the wall, also any electric sockets that may need to be moved, if the wall is to be moved 500mm Approx, there may not be excess cable, so they would have to be extended. Also taping, filling and re-decoration. Allow yourself approx £750

For that size of wall you would be approx £500, hope this is useful to you
