Lack of Building Regulation documents for the heating
I'm assuming this is normal? Also, is there anything I should look out for? Or anything to beware of in the future?
As I wasn't sure, I have asked them to get the certificate for now. Can someone advise me on the process of getting the certification and how long it generally takes?
Thanks in advance
