    got any old original floors?

    be specific about damage limitation.
    maybe get a joiner in to lift the boards

    My parents had the house rewired when I was a kid, but that was to replace the rubber insulated wiring the house had when it was built which had degraded. PVC insulation lasts much longer. I very much doubt you need to have it all replaced. It's more likely that some switches, sockets and lamp fittings have worn out or you have poorly tightened connections which have become corroded over time.
    You could get an electrician to replace these at relatively little cost and disruption. He'd tell you if there was any good reason to replace the wiring.
