  • Gas safety certificate

    Hi all
    I need to get a gas safety inspection done on a flat I own in SE London but am having real problems finding a company who will deal with a single property. Can anybody recommend anybody at all? And let me know what is a fair price for this?
    Many thanks for your help

          Do a search for a gas heating engineer on the flat's post code and ring them up, offering lots of money. You will soon find someone (if you offer them enough to get off their backside)

            cant recommend anyone but price wise, the corgi man that has done mine for many years charges £40 for each one although i have been quoted £200 - each but london prices are no doubt much higher
            Opinions given are mine, They are not necessarily correct, as the more I learn the less I know, You should always seek professional help.

              I know someone who does them. I'll try to contact him later and let you know. Mine's due soon and I think it was £100 last year.

                To all landlords: Don’t forget to check that the engineer is currently registered by CORGI. You can do this by asking the engineer for their number and then punch it into the Check Installer Registration website.

                    I have a gas service contract with British Gas and they service the boiler and hob (the only gas appliances in the property) once a year, have 365 days a year callout if anything goes wrong with the boiler or central heating, and issur my Landlords' Safety Certificate for around £295 p.a. and you can pay monthly.

                      Hi,
                      I have a one bed flat that is let out at the moment. I asked an electrician to change the fusebox to a consumer unit and asked him for a cost of changing my battery smoke alarm to a main conntected one.

                      What he told me is that I need two alarms, one smoke alarm and one heat alarm...

                      on a side note... I'd be a rich man if I had a quid for every time a builder has mentioned CO2 detectors.

                      Agreed. My use of open flue was wrong. The theory of the legislation is that the annual inspection and the well controlled nature of the fuel should mean that a problem is detected before it becomes dangerous, but there is no inspection regime for solid fuel.

                      Not to be pedantic but CO alarms are required in rooms where there is a solid-fuel appliance. So an open gas fire would not require one.

                      Is this becoming 'a thing'?

                      I have had a run in with a, well, I don't know what he was, to be honest! Not an electrician, not a surveyor.. his card said something like "Property Inspection and Surveys" - so had assumed he was a clerk with some of the other possible certs added...

                      Sorry if this has been asked before, and sorry for posting rather than waiting to see what happens !

                      I have just had my gas appliances serviced, and safety inspection carried out (for a landlords gas safety certificate - CP12).

                      There was a fault which the engineer classified...

                      Just for interest - I once had a (personal, not BTL) house where there was a smell of gas near the meter. Called the gas company, instructed (obviously) to turn the gas off at the meter - smell continued.

                      Was told to leave the property IMMEDIATELY and they had someone there within 15 minutes....

                      Don't 'think', do your own research. FB is a good place to start.

                      Battery operated alarms are fine for a non-HMO unless Council Registration is poss required. Suggest LL replaces batt alarms every 3 years, as detectors deteriorate. Mains powered alarms should replaced every 10 years...
