A full rewire of an existing property can be disruptive but sometimes is necessary to ensure the electrical installation is safe for use, there is nothing more important than that. You would normally discover a rewire is necessary for certain reasons, such as:
Observations and discoveries made by others, possibly while work is being carried out at the property
Faults occurring due to old wiring, light fittings or sockets
As a result of an electrical condition report/periodic inspection report being carried out on the property
Sometimes you may find that not all the installation needs rewiring, it may be that a partial rewire of certain faulty circuits and a consumer unit upgrade could bring the installation up to current standards and ensure it is compliant with the current IEE wiring regulations (BS7671). The only way to establish the extent of rewiring needed would be to carry out a periodic inspection report. We recommend having these reports carried out first of establish the condition of the existing electrical installation in terms of electrical safety.
If a full rewire is required it is best if at all possible to have it done while the property is empty, perhaps before the new property owners move in or when the client is on holiday perhaps, but ‘lived in’ rewires are possible too.
