I am moving a partition wall in a new-build home by approx 1m - the wall currently has a plug socket on it.
When I move the wall the wiring to the socket will now be too short. Is there a way to extend the wiring so that I can keep the socket on the wall that is acceptable for a DIY'er to do...or will touching the wiring at all require someone with PartP? Would the electrics need assessed before trying to sell the property?
As a safety engineer I am familiar with the regulations in terms of keeping the wiring vertical/horizontal behind the plasterboard I just don't know whether the regulations specify a difference between installing a new socket and moving/extending an existing socket.
