Moving home is one of the most significant and exciting – but also stressful – transitions that anyone can make in life. If you're currently in the process of buying or selling a property – or both – we're sure you'll have been through a long 'to-do' list. But have you remembered to take the precautions necessary to ensure the safety of the property that will be changing hands?

Sadly, all too many homeowners and prospective property purchasers fail to do so, despite the risks that unsafe appliances can pose, such as fires, explosions, gas leaks and carbon monoxide poisoning.

Ask us about our home buyer reports and inspections

One way you can ensure peace of mind about the safety of the property you are looking to buy or sell, is by getting in touch with our Bromley, Camden or Walton-on-Thames plumbers about having the home's gas and plumbing installations tested.

This is an undertaking that surveyors and solicitors tend to recommend to their clients regardless, and it is one that we would urge you not to overlook – not least given the potentially considerable cost of correcting any problems that do arise.

Our engineers here at PGS Plumbers are Gas Safe registered, which is the status that any professional must have if they are to be legally permitted to undertake gas work at a property.

We can test your property's gas appliances using the same procedure and certification that apply for landlord’s certification. This means we will inspect all of the home's gas appliances, meter and visible pipework to confirm that they comply with regulations and are safe.

It is as part of this service that we also check a property's plumbing pipework and installations, so that we can provide advice in relation to any pre-existing or potential issues.

Don't take the risk, when you simply don't need to!

Amid all of the excitement of a house move, it can be easy to forget the importance of checking those gas and plumbing installations in what might otherwise seem to be a dream property. But the often hefty expense of putting problems right should certainly make you alert to this!

Turn to PGS Plumbers' Fulham, Teddington and Walton-on-Thames plumbers – to name just some of the areas of London and South East England in which we are active – to carry out these crucial inspections, and you will receive the reassurance of a detailed home buyer report and extensive gas safety tests.

It's as straightforward a process as calling 0203 370 0066 and arranging a visit from one of our qualified plumbing and gas engineers, for what you are likely to find to be a highly reasonable price.
