At the very least, rewiring a house means removing the old wires and replacing them with newer ones. It's likely that there may be other upgrades too, like replacing sockets and installing new power points. Wiring is often difficult to access and we may have to run wiring through difficult areas.

A skilled electrician will be able to undertake the task of rewiring a single circuit or just one room. A partial rewire might be necessary if one circuit is damaged and making that circuit electrically unsafe. You can do this but it will cost more per room and connecting new wiring to old wiring is not recommended.

Remove all you can, such as any carpets or old furniture from the previous owner, because wires will run underneath floors, walls, across ceiling.
