Only for a new installation if there isn't an existing line there already. This would then be notifiable under Part P Building regulations.

You can replace the fitting yourself if you are competent to do so.

LOL @ Sassie not being able to change a lightbulb.

You probably know this if you fitted switches/ceiling roses before but the lighting circuit will still be live even though you have it switch off at the light switch so make sure mains is switched off or fuse is off....

Whether the existing ceiling rose can remain in place depends on your new light fitting...

Not in bathrooms and kitchens. They come under different rules due to the water/electricity risk and ALL work has to be notified to BC. Screw Part P anyway, I completely rewired my old house :lol:
