If a property has not already been rewired within the last 15-20 years, the chances are it may 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 are planning a renovation then it is likely that you may need to rewire part, if not all, of the property, including upgrading the switch board.

If you are extending your home, or converting an attic, garage or granny flat, this will constitute new work and therefore all of the new wiring will have to conform to AS3000:2018 and the existing wiring will have to be improved to ensure that it is able to carry the additional loads safely.
