Hi all. I am not an electrician but greatly really appreciate some advice if possible.

I am in the process of getting a full house rewire and the consumer unit is currently under the stairs. The electrician is saying that to get the work signed off by building regulations the consumer unit has to be moved on the side of the stairs about 1.2 M high. I would prefer it to stay where it is but obviously have to stick by the regulations.

I looked online and it seems that the mounting height of over 1.2M only applies to new dwellings. Would that be correct or does a full rewire and new consumer unit mean that it would count as a new dwelling and will need to be mounted higher up?

Thanks
