    Gas safety inspection in tier 3 area?

    Does anyone know whether gas safety inspections can still go ahead in a tier 3 area? The town has just been moved into tier 3 and inspection is due tomorrow. Don’t want it to be an issue with the tenants. It’s fully agent managed, I’m going to drop them a line but in the meantime if anyone knows I’d be grateful to hear.

    There's no tier rules anywhere in the UK tomorrow? England is still in lockdown 2.0, while Scotland, Wales & N.I. have national restrictions or Levels.

    But to answer your question, gas safety inspection was still required during the original lockdown & shielding when restrictions was stricter, so don't see that not being the case.

        There are no tiers in England tomorrow. But there are in Scotland.

              Had British Gas visit a property yesterday and they carried out GST, engineer simply wore PPE and asked tenants / myself to do the same as he said he was at high risk.

                When I have arrange Gas Safety Checks, the tenants have n't objected. However, I do advise them to open kitchen window and turn on extractor (which air vent outwards). To vacate the room and allow exchange of air. I also tell them to wear masks. Other members of the family (e.g. should be in other rooms).

                I also suggest they wipe down any surfaces where the engineer has been. I do n't know if this is Government advice, but this is what I tell tenants. I have told them, if the engineer turns up without wearing a mask, then they should be refused entry.

                  When Tiers are in operation, Tier 3 areas are allowed to undertake essential works. Gas safety is essential in anyones definition I would suggest
