Recently changed plug sockets and light switches. Have noticed before this was done we were burning through light bulbs.

A few of our plug sockets are high voltage 250 -270.

Any ideas

If you have 270 V between live and neutral then yes, that is a little high. How did you measure this?

250V is normal for the UK, this is what most substations are set up to supply.
270V is above the normal limits and if this has been measured with an accurate calibrated meter you should contact your distribution network operator ASAP to report the fault.

It was supposed to be a joke. Sorry you two don’t have a sense of humour :(

You and your neighbour both need to contact your supplier. Let us know what they say.

Its k I know I'm not an electrician. Just trying to figure this out as we have been trying to solve it all day and beginning to wonder if it's a larger issue

That's not HV, just higher than normal LV voltage, what were/are you measuring the Voltage with?
