There are an increasing number of people using gas in their homes, whether for a stove or fireplace, however, while there has been much talk of all the compliance certificates (electricity, water, etc) needed for the sale of a home, they do not have up to date gas compliance certificates. 

Should there be a fire in a home with a gas installation in it, and if there is no up to date compliance certificate, the insurance company could possibly reject the claim.


A little known fact is that if there were to be a fire in a home with a gas installation in it, if there is no up to date compliance certificate, the insurance company could possibly reject the claim. 

The majority of insurance companies would require this certificate to prove that the installation was safe and had been serviced regularly. 

According to an insurance consultant, gas certificates should be renewed every year, and all the safety aspects of keeping gas in a home need to be adhered to strictly. 

Gas canisters must be in a metal cage if they stand outside and if any gas canisters are left unattended in a holiday home or garage, these must be empty or should rather be taken away from the premises if the home is to be empty for a time. 

There is maintenance or repair work done to a gas appliance, the owner of the home should make sure they use an accredited gas company, which is registered with the Liquid Petroleum Gas Safety Association (LPGSA) and the person that does the actual repair needs to be registered as well. 

As with gas, Steward says electrical compliance certificates are also needed to ensure safety compliance, but these certificates need only be renewed every two years. Any electrical repair work or maintenance must also be accompanied by a certificate of compliance.
