Hi. I am having a new kitchen installed and have questions about electrical work please.

I am having the work done to sell so I would like to keep the cost to a minimum.

I hope to understand more about the following please:

- i have a gas oven/ hob with electric ignition ( only). ( which I would like to move but would prefer to plug into 13 amp socket rather than installing a new cooker circuit - the cooker wire currently needs relocating to the other side of the room)

- Can i have the cooker wire surface mounted to relocate it rather than needing the floorboard removed upstairs?

- I am happy to plug appliances into 3 point sockets where access allows

-I would prefer to keep any existing sockets ( one will be too close to the new cooker position and it is linked to another socket and both are controlled by the same fused spur - is it possible to keep just one?)

- Can I wire a new socket off of the wires to the older socket that will be too close to the cooker and install a nes socket from that which is in a better position from the cooker?

-Can i buy and supply my own sockets for the job?

- How much should i expect for an electrician to install new double/ single sockets and fused spurs if the wires are all ready hanging out of the ceilng ( and ready to make good into the consumer unit?

- Are the electrics installed before or after the cabinets are installed if the switches will be inside the cabinets?

Any help is greatly appreciated

If you are doing up to sell then do it properly, surface mount wiring looks naff and will put off some potential buyers. A separate 32Amp radial circuit for oven/hob is an essential IMHO as is wiring for an extraction hood.

As for price get a few quotes. Impossible to give an accurate figure over t'internet.

Before is better, that way they can be chased into the wall.

You do not need a "cooker circuit" it's a gas oven and hob, it can be plugged into any socket.

Why are you asking us? we are not doing the job, your electrician is.

As wine~O said, you really need an electrician to visit site, see what it is you want to do then he can give you a quote, you can also ask any other questions you have, such as does he have tea or coffee (That one sounds daft, but it really goes a long way)

Working on anything electrical? have you got a multi meter? why not? Would you hit a nail with a shoe?
