when i had my house rewired about 5 yrs ago i ask the spark to run a new cable for a cooker so that it would be ready to connect to a new cooker when we came to remodel the kitchen, this in now sat in the ceiling void ready to be chased in.
We have finally saved enough money to do the kitchen but i am now wondering if an electrician will be able to finish this job as the cable is the "old colours"
I suppose although the cable has been in situ for a number of years but has never been used that once it is connected at both ends it will effectively be a new wiring circuit .
I am aware the crossover date for using old stock wiring has long gone.
I am hoping the cable doesnt have to be replaced with new as this will mean either ripping up a newly tiled floor in the bathroom or pulling down a newly plastered ceiling in the kitchen
As i write this another point as occured to me - will an electrician be able to use the cable anyway as he has to sign for it and has no knowledge how it was routed ?
