A home buyers gas safety record written report could be grounds for a buyer to negotiate a lower purchase price if remedial works are required.
A home buyers gas safety record written report, is identical to a landlord CP12. It is important to note that this is a gas safety “record” and not a certificate. It is a record of the observations and operational test results that were found on the day on which the Gas Safe Registered(Corgi) engineer makes a decision on whether or not the installation and appliances are safe.
No guarantee can be offered or implied as to the future operational lifespan of any gas appliance. A home buyers gas safety record written report could be grounds for a buyer to negotiate a lower purchase price if remedial works are required.
Please be aware that a gas safety check does not in any circumstances prevent issues from occurring in the future, its findings are what is found on the day and could result in your appliances being found to be not safe/at risk or immediately dangerous to use, however payment will still be due for the work in that event.
This work is basically like a car MOT test situation, you take your car to a garage test center to have its MOT test carried out. If it fails as a result of faults found then you have the option of getting the car repaired and then re-tested for the MOT test. But you still have to pay for the initial MOT test plus in addition you have to pay someone, either the MOT test center or another garage to have the faults rectified.
Inspections can normally be carried out within 2 – 4 hours, depending on type and number of gas appliances.
