    Gas boiler insurance

    Hi all,

    I'm due the annual gas safety and wanted to ask does anyone take out any insurance based gas boiler service product.

    as I'm thinking i spend around 60 for the certificate but if it was say 100 for the insurance PLUS a certificate very year that might make sense to me.
    Just wondered if anyone had any experience with such insurances ?

    thanks

    The problem with such insurances is that they always seem to discover spurious problems when they carry out your service.

      I'd be surprised if you managed to get a policy for £100, plus they will ask how old the boiler is, I spend around £350 on getting the policy, it's piece of mind, and if they do have issues they always happen during winter when the prices of a local person goes up, and you don't have to spend 3 days trying to find someone. It wont be covered if there is an existing problem so better to get it when it's working.

        I have a British Gas policy on one of my lets at £23.50 pcm. It gets me unlimited call outs and a gas certificate. The particularly difficult but good paying tenant was convinced my plumbers were trying to kill her and her children and she would never agree a time to let them in yet want endless repairs to a newish boiler. BG seem to have solved all this for me. I put the rent up to cover the cost. Well worth it.

          A hidden benefit of BG's cover is that when they can't get an engineer straight out (most autumn seasons) the tenant tends to blame them rather than me.
          When I post, I am expressing an opinion - feel free to disagree, I have been wrong before.
          Please don't act on my suggestions without checking with a grown-up (ideally some kind of expert).
