    On the flat I am renting, I pay £35. That is for one combi boiler and a gas hob.
    It's arranged for me through my letting agent and I don't charge the tenant extra for it. It is part of the rental expenses and the landlords legal responsibility.

    Certificate must be issued by a registered Corgi gas engineer every year.

    This is useful:

    I also provide carbon monoxide indicators for the tenant - it's not a legal requirement, but it's added back-up.

    We do an appliance service at the same time as the Safety Certificate, and if there was just a gas boiler at the property the charge would be 65+ vat. (an extra 20 for a gas hob or cooker)
    There will be a copy for the tenant, and a copy for the letting agent/private landlord. There will be the engineers GasSafe registration number on the Certificate so you would be able to check this if necessary.
    Most letting agents have their own favoured engineers/companies but I would doubt that the 35 price would include servicing so you would have to find someone else to do that or pay extra.

    We were quoted 67.50 inc. vat by our letting agents, and that was for a boiler and a gas cooker. However, I did find a quote for 50, which is the cheapest I found.
    That's in Lancashire.

    I charge 55 for the boiler/first appliance, 30 for a fire, if done at the same visit, 10 for a hob/cooker and 5 for the certificate, all plus vat.

    Gas Safety Certificate
    I use British Gas - I pay 15 a month for gas servicing and breakdown and the 24 for a gas safety certificate. Takes all the hassle out of it.

    Update,
    Everything went fine, work completed as expected, no problems with gas but I knew that anyway. slightly rushed but professional independent who did the epc and gas certificate in one go at a price I couldnt find anywhere else.

    Would recommend.

    Hi Karen,
    I thought that I should issue a personal thank you to you and to the gentleman who I used for my gas safety certificate and landlords energy performace certificate.

    I called the company he came out the next day. I wasn't at the property at the time and I asked if the keys could be collected from the estate agents. They were without issue and I have since been issued with an invoice to pay.

    I will use this gentleman again when I sell my current property and need a EPC. It was value for money I must say.

    Sorry if this sounds like a testimonial.

    Thanks Karen and thanks Mr AJ.

    (he told me that he has seen this website)

    sorry I cant post links so had to edit your post a little, sorry

    Anyone in Mid Cornwall do a reasonable quote please ?

    I have 2 apartments that have a gas boiler, (& poss a gas fire in same room), in Bodmin.

    Everything else is lectric.

    There are 15 units in the block, I can try to get more custom for later.

    cheers all

    ooooooops - apologies for hijacking - will start my own

    although its spam, thats a damn good price for a gas safety check

    some1 mentioned rushed, but its not hard to do the checks.

    the hard part is the qualification

    i have family in the trade, and they charge me 40 quid.

    he used to want more til i started going elsewhere

    by the way, hi every1. im new and not a spammer
