Hi all

My sister is have a rewire of her house and the spark has put cables underneath the plaster in the kitchen which will be behind skirting as it is a solid concrete floor. Is this allowed and safe if not what should he do?

The kitchen is solid concrete but the rest of the house is suspended floors.

Thanks

Craig

SFAIA behind skirting is outside of permitted zones.

As wine-o says, it's not allowed. How is next owner to know they're behind the skirting. Very dangerous

Thanks for the answers that's what I thought from a quick Google. Can I just ask where the cable are allowed to run upstairs as I thought they had to go in a corner. But he has run up the wall between the front room and dining room doors about 1 foot wide. Is this allowed?

Have a look at this page http://www.ultimatehandyman.co.uk/how-t ... ring-zones

IF your "Electrician" is outside of those then he's chancing it (assuming he's bona fide)
