Hello

New to the forum and looking for some advice.

I have purchased a house that requires a full rewire as it has old rubber wiring, spurs on spurs and a 13-amp socket drawing current of a light fitting! I've had some professional electricians round to discuss what's need and provide quotes, but each is saying different things are required of the new wiring, leaving me unsure which is giving the best / correct solution.

The property is a 3-bed semi-detached and I am looking at having:

Downstairs - 8 double sockets and 3 light fixtures in the living room, 4 double sockets and 9down lights in the kitchen with an oven and built in microwave; a hob and a hood. Also need a double socket and light to a conservatory and the same to a garage (both attached to exterior walls of house).

Upstairs - 10 double sockets and 4 light fixtures spread between 3 bedrooms and landing. A shower, towel rail, and six down lights in the bathroom.

I also need to have electric heating through-out and a water heater as no gas supply.

I've been told different requirements from having one ring main for all the sockets and one lighting circuit, up to five ring mains (downstairs, kitchen, upstairs, heating and external) and 3 lighting circuits. Each has said separate circuits for the shower and the oven.

I'm hoping I can get a consensus of what the best installation would be so I can hire the right electrician.

Thanks in Advance
