    white council style switches/sockets needed asap

    we are moving and our current home has all chrome switches in (that we put in), we obviously dont want to leave them behind, do any of you have any old ones you no longer need? we need the following;

    7 single light switches
    1 double light switch
    6 single sockets
    13 double sockets
    1 cooker switch with single socket on it too
    8 ceiling pendant style lights
    1 bathroom light fitting

    many thanks x

    best bet local diy store or screwfix next day delivery

    screwfix.com/cat…nge

    To be honest its best to get them all new and matching. You don't have to spend a fortune get the value range, alot of buyers will notice odd switches etc and will think the place needs completely new wiring and electrics and will offer less for the house.

    Or you could try your local freecycle.

    think they mean cheap white basics, although i believe there isnt a specific one for council houses - lol

    wilkos is still quite a lot, as there are lots i need, im looking on ebay at moment.

    my house is council, so we arent leaving them for the next people who live here - they cost a lot!!! and yeah, you can improve a council home as long as you get permission 1st!

    try CPC they are quite cheap there

    That's what I was wondering, I thought all fixtures and fittings that are not staying would need to be itemised? I'm sure if I bought a house and noticed they had all changed I wouldn't be too happy and would probably query it

    im council not private - as long as you get permission and replace them if you take them when you leave its fine - some councils may differ tho
