There are very few events in anyone’s life that are quite as significant as moving house. However, it is also precisely because of this, with prospective homeowners often being pushed for time as they seek to complete their property purchase transaction, that certain very crucial aspects of the process of moving home can sometimes be overlooked.

If you’re looking to purchase a home right now, for example, have you had the gas and plumbing installations checked by a trusted and capable professional, so as to avoid any nasty surprises?

Why might you request a home buyers report?

As highly reputable Epsom, Lewisham and Balham plumbers here at PGS Plumbers, we’re accustomed to undertaking tests on the gas and plumbing installations of all manner of residential properties around London and the Home Counties.

The reasons why you may ask our plumbing and heating engineers to carry out this work are several. First of all, with a property likely to be the biggest purchase you make in your lifetime, you will naturally wish to feel fully informed about exactly what you’re getting for your money. This very much extends to the condition of the gas appliances and the plumbing pipework and installations.

However, it’s not just a desire for peace of mind about what you receive in return for your investment that should motivate you to ask us about our comprehensive home buyers reports.

That’s because there’s also the imperative safety angle to consider – you won’t want to put yourself or your family in avoidable danger, simply because you ‘didn’t get round’ to having those sensitive appliances and installations thoroughly scrutinised by a professional.

Don’t place your faith in anyone else for this specialised service

While it’s generally important to have the gas and plumbing installations in a property tested before you go ahead with the purchase, you should also make sure the right people are carrying out this work for you. After all, you won’t want any faults or issues – whether current or emerging – to be missed.

Navigate to the relevant page of our website for home buyers reports, and you’ll see that our Greenwich, Tooting and Balham plumbers really do undertake this work to the very highest standards. We apply honesty, impartiality and attention to detail when providing this service, to help to ensure you know exactly what condition the property’s appliances and installations are in.

One especially important part of this work is the official gas safety inspection that we will undertake for you, as we are qualified to do, thanks to our status as Gas Safe engineers. Then, once we’re done, we’ll email you the home buyers report together with a digitally generated gas safety certificate.

To learn more about this vital – but often overlooked – service, and to arrange a visit from one of our highly capable and seasoned engineers, simply call 0203 370 0066 today.
