This article has been written to assist in finding the type and cost of the gas certificate required. We only inspect Residential Properties with a residential gas meter, pipework and appliances. If you need a Commerical Certificate please contact us.
Below are several common residential gas examples:
Gas Safety Certificate – Gas Meter Only £35 inc Vat – This certificate is required if you have no gas appliances in the property, but still have gas running through the pipe work. This type of setup is common in Council flats where the primary gas pipe work is in the basement and the gas pipe work is integrated into the building structure linked to a secondary meter, consequently even if the gas is capped off at the secondary meter, active gas pipe work may still be in the property. All the appliances could be electric, but because the pipe work in the property has gas still going through it – a gas meter test is still required to check if it Safe. Also some property owners still want to keep the Gas Pipe work active as at a later stage may want to install gas appliances. It is important that a gas meter or tightness test is performed every year to ensure there are no gas leaks in the property.

Should all my gas appliances be Tested?
By Law, all Gas Appliances in a property have to be tested in an inspection, owned by the landlord. You cannot pick and choose which appliances to test, even if you had a new appliance installed within a year. A gas safety engineer can only certify a gas certificate or deem a property gas safe, if all the appliances in the property have been tested on the day.
