Can RH help with re-wiring my entire property?
Yes, re-wiring is a good idea for safety and flexibility especially with period properties that haven't been updated for a while. Modern electrical regulations are a lot safer than previous standards and itís unlikely that a wiring job done, say thirty years ago, will have enough sockets to satisfy the amount of devices in use around the house today. Lighting has got more sophisticated too, with fewer people happy to rely on just a central light fitting in the ceiling in each room.

What could be causing my breaker to keep tripping when I use my toaster oven in the kitchen?
It may seem unlikely that a small appliance like a toaster oven could trip a breaker, but it's not all that uncommon with overloads. Your toaster is plugged into an outlet that is supported by the circuit that leads to the breaker. Using just one extra device can overload the circuit enough to trip the breaker.
