selling house no boiler certificate

My house was for sale for only 3 weeks and best and final offer accepted my me for more than £20k over asking price. Buyer was happy with everything but now they say solicitor needs paperwork for boiler but it is not new. Boiler was installed 5 years ago and done properly but not serviced. My solicitor advised getting up to date safety check plus boiler service. I am happy with that because boiler is fine, even though it is old and I want to finish this sale without buyer pulling out.

Any company that can help please message me privately.

I have same questions with electrical certificate that I have been asked to supply. Also happy to pay and get paperwork finished and sale completed

    If you're in Devon then I can certainly recommend good tradesmen to you. And by the way, you won't get a boiler 'installation' certificate now- it's been 5 years. The best thing is to follow the advice of your solicitor and get the gas safety certificate as a minimum and possibly the boiler service if it hasn't been done for a while. Manufacturers recommend servicing your boiler every year, otherwise, amongst other things, you will have warranty issues if it ever breaks down - not that a decent boiler should ever be breaking down in the first 5 years.
