One of the most expensive purchases of any person’s life will be buying a new home or investment property. It is standard practice therefore for Home Buyer’s to have a surveyor access the general condition of the property before they commit to buying it.

Surveyors are however usually not trained to do a proper survey of a home’s plumbing or gas system and will often suggest you contact a Gas Safe registered firm like ours.

We offer a Gas Safety and Plumbing Inspection service for Home Buyers. This provides you with a honest and independent assessment detailing pre-existing or potential problems with estimated costings for the works required to rectify any recorded defects.

HOME BUYER’S GAS & PLUMBING INSPECTION £95* (inc. VAT)

When we do our inspection we will test the property’s gas boiler and flue (or one alternate gas appliance) using the same statutory form as we do our Landlord’s Gas Safety Certifications (CP12). We will also inspect the meter and visible plumbing pipework to confirm compliance with regulations and safe operation.

When we visit the property we can also assess and quote you for any upgrade work you want done to the property (e.g. a new power shower, modern taps, a replacement bathroom suite or more energy efficient boiler). We will alert you after our visit if we notice any reasons which could prevent your “dream” improvements from going ahead.

* We offer discounted rates when you ask us to check multiple gas appliances at any one property during any one visit. Please note that we charge an additional rate to service any Back Boilers as in effect we will be servicing TWO Gas Appliances. 

TO USE OUR SERVICES PLEASE KINDLY LEAVE US YOUR FULL DETAILS ON OUR LOCAL RATE PHONE NUMBER (01234) 856262 – ONE OF OUR ENGINEERS WILL BE IN TOUCH TO BOOK YOU AN APPOINTMENT. THANK YOU.
