Gas Safe Certificate Required- Potentially looking to rent.

Postby niallheeney » 08 Jan 2018, 20:26

Hello,

I am struggling to find a definitive answer to this as several sites say different things. Having recently purchased and renovated my camper, I am wondering whether I now need to get a gas safe certificate for it. The gas supplies the fridge and grill/cooker, the previous owner has all the pipes etc installed, but with me potentially looking to rent my van out to help with costs, I assume a certificate is neccessary?

Any help and information would be greatly appreciated.

Even if it's not a legality you would be negligent if you didn't have one and somebody got injured or died, not worth the risk, get one either way.

I am sure that this question has come up in the past - as it is in the course of business it is required. Can't remember if it was an insurance requirement or what. As above though, you would be crazy to not have certificates for everything under the sun in today's litigious society.
