Partial rewire & full rewire
When is Rewiring Necessary?
If a property has not already been rewired within the last 25-30 years, the chances are it will need upgrading at least in part in order to bring it up to current standards. The wiring may be potentially dangerous and may not be able to cope with the demands of modern living.
If you plan major remodelling work that constitutes a material alteration as defined by the Building Regulations, it is likely that you will need to rewire part, if not all, of the property, including upgrading the consumer unit (fuse box).
If you are extending your home, or converting an attic or garage, this will constitute new work and therefore all of the new wiring will have to conform Part P Building regulations, and all existing wiring will have to be improved to ensure that it is able to carry the additional loads safely, it is earthed to current requirements and that equipotential bonding is satisfactory.
Where you are extending or remodelling, the rest of the existing wiring does not have to be upgraded, except where upgrading is required by the energy efficiency requirements of the Building Regulations, i.e. central heating controls.
If you are in any doubt, assume that a total rewire is required and budget accordingly or get a report EICR from a electrician. It may be that the system can be improved for less money by upgrading earthing or installing a upfront RCD.
