cost of chasing out and re-wiring

Postby matt48 » Sat May 15, 2010 12:58 pm

Hi All,

I am soon moving into a medium sized 1950's, 3 bed, ex-council house. It has old, surface mounted electrics with conduit and surface boxes all over the place.

I want to get rid of this as soon as pos but was wondering what the likely cost of chasing out and re-wiring would be?

Only looking to see if anyone can chuck a an average cost at me until I can get in to start to get some real details?

Depends where you live but could cost anyting between £1500-3000.
I would ring around and get some quotes, have them visit your property not a quote over the phone.

I'd have said more to the tune of 3 - 5 grand myself.

or trading standards 'buy with confidence' web site, or even 'trustmark'
