My electrician has given me a steep bill for second fix. It's a 2
storey extension with garden room on the g/floor + small utility room
and shower room, then 2 beds upstairs + landing. In all 16 double sockets, 3 single sockets, 1 fused outlet, 2 wall fans, 16 12v downlights, 9x 240v downlights, 4x 1 gang l/switch, 3 pull lsw, 7x 2 gang lsw, 2x 3 gang lsw. also fitting a 12way split load board and connecting the circuits + swapping the old consumer unit for a new 10 way s/load board ( this job took 2 hrs say 3 at the outside)

The first fix he did for 35hrs @ £32ph- electrician + 'apprentice' son.
The second fix he wants £1600 for £37hrs @ £25- (him only son now no
longer around) nothing out of the ordinary just connecting up to the tails that he left before the plasterer moved in. All the wall boxes had been cleared of plaster for him, all downlight holes cut, and all wires dangling out of the right holes/boxes.

Leaving aside the materials the labour hours seem high.
Does this sound right or does 2nd fix normally take as long as 1st fix??
also is is normal to charge for 8 hours and then take a lunch break out of that?
