Reconsider Gas Safety Regulations alongside changes to Section 21

Gas safety Certificates. In my opinion annual gas certificates are too often. Unless the appliance is not room sealed and or is in a bathroom. then modern appliances now have so many safety/cutoff features this annual testing is a waste of money and time consuming

All new appliances should clearly have a installation date and certified Then for first 4 years say no annual certificate is required then bi annual

Bad advice and penalty fee for HMO let in Newham?

For me I wouldn’t rush to appoint a solicitor of any kind yet. Their fees will cost you more than their claim even if u win!!! First invoke the agents dispute procedure and see were that goes.

I also say he was wrong to think u can apply for planning consent retrospectively. If he failed to warn u of the risk of refusal and the implications of (financial) of a Planning Breach Notice. Weather ur agent is qualified or not he gave you negligent advice. You might have to counter sue. I would wait for him to serve a Summons. First though the agent should have a despite’s procedure

Frankly you seemed to have taken short cuts/risks that have not gone your way. Did not any alarm bells ring!!!... Read More
