Postby Andy750 » Wed Dec 28, 2016 6:05 pm

Hi all, would someone kindly give me some advice on moving a double electrical socket please. I would like to move a double socket to a higher position on a stud wall in my kitchen in order to mount a TV bracket and TV but because I'm am not moving the socket to another wall would I need to get tje work signed off by a qualified person? Thanks.

Is there a reason why you would not want the work signed off?
The building regs are different in England, Wales, Scotland and NI.
So depending on where the work is located nationally would dictate the process required.

But I would always recommend that any electrical work is tested and proved to be safe.
You will also need to consider safe routes of cable and the possibility that additional protection via RCD maybe required to comply to regs.
