Charge out rates can vary depending on experience, expertise and the quality of work completed. By law, you are required to use a registered electrician as they have to provide a Certificate of Compliance or Electrical Safety Certificate for any electrical work completed.
Registered Master Electricians have a duty of care to ensure that they safely wire your home. This includes evaluating the safety of your home even if it was not completely safe, to begin with. If you have an older property, it may no longer have ‘safe’ wiring, especially with electrical standards improving and updating over time. In order for electrical work to be compliant, you may need to pay for additional electrician costs to make your property safe.
