    Defect listed on gas safety certificate 12th Mar 18 at 2:00 PM
    Hi MSE-ers. I'm moving into a new rental property soon and have received the gas safety certificate along with the other paperwork from the estate agents. All seems fine on the certificate, except that in the "Defect Identified" section, it says:

    Bayonet fitting too low, hose touches floor

    The "Remedial Action" suggested is:

    Advise altering supply to cooker

    This may have already been done, but if not, do you think I should ask for it to be done? I don't really know how much this matters/doesn't matter from a safety perspective. The document says a warning wasn't issued.

    It's just a recommendation. If the hose touches the floor, it's at risk of physical damage. If there was an actual issue, they'd not have issued the certificate.

    As above. Its like an advisory on your MOT. Not a failure.
    Eat vegetables and fear no creditors, rather than eat duck and hide.
