Default Annual Gas Safety Inspection for Subletting

As many on here use your caravan for sub-letting, an excellent way to bring in extra income and help towards ground rent, I thought I had better remind you all that you require a Leisure Industry Landlords certification.
This is a legal requirement the same as if you were to rent out a flat or house.
I know many of you more experinced owners will be on the ball when it comes to this but many new owners do not realise this and I cannot stress enough the importance of getting this done.
As a static caravan service provider this is something which I am able to offer and costs start at 45.00 inc vat. We are fully CORGI registered and insured our CORGI number is 232289. This is for a full inspection of all appliances, flues, pipework and certification, though if any repairs are needed this is an extra cost of which a quote will be issued for you to OK prior to any work being carried. Small repairs will be carried on the day and depending on the cost could be included in the cost of the inspection.
We are currently taking bookings for 2009 and if you would like more details or to book a specfic date and time please contact myself, Ian, on 01206860746 or 07817730981
Why not ask about our portable appliance testing (PAT Testing)for your electrical items as well.

Dan, have you noticed the date of the thread??
It might have gone up since then-but probably not by that much!!
I'm toying with the idea of having it done, but I'll have to check if I have to go through my own site to get it done...

Hi Angela,
Our prices have remained pretty level, even since the date of my original thread. We like to stay pretty consistant. If there is a group of you on the same site who require a gas safety inspectiion, both for subletting or just because your park requires all owners to have an up to date certificate, we may even consider dropping the the price if you were all to have the inspection done at the same time.
Ian

Hi, our site charge 65. but a corgi LPG registered plumber does most private vans for 35. Parkdean have now said non hire vans must also have yearly test.

I have just had an annual gas safety check done in a rental property. 65.00 but this was to check all appliances, central heating boiler, and seperate boiler for water. I would appear that static owners are charged top whack for everything! This is something I pay for personally incidentally, not the tenant. Does it apply to owners who dont rent out?

Its not law for owners to have gas test just another way for sites to make money

Nope no work done, checked the hob, gas fire, water boiler, oven/grill and central heating boiler. Just checked the flame colour, pressure tests and smoke bombs up the flues. Most I have ever paid anyone for an hours work. Lesson learnt.
