New surveys for sellers.........
As of November 1st 2007 any property being sold with a fixed gas instalation will need to provide a gas installation survey.
I have just spoken to CODEC, a local company who are the main surveyors in this area. They tell me that a fixed instalation is one where the cooking or heating appliance is connected to a mains gas supply or gas bottle via a fixed pipe.
Unlike a lot of gas hobs that are connected to a gas bottle under the sink vi a flexible gas pipe. These do not require a survey.
