Multiple Gas Safety inspection costs?

How much is everyone paying for Gas safety inspections?

I have 8 properties, all on the same site. All have gas combi boilers & 1 gas appliance, a hob. I routinely get the combi’s serviced at the same time. My gas engineer is charging 8 x £75 to complete the work & issue 8 certificates.

That seems a lot, considering he’ll get all 8 done in a day.

That’s £600 for a day’s work, especially as it’s routine & repeat business for him.

I know rates vary around the country. I’m in South Devon. It’ll be interesting to see what everyone’s paying up & down the land.

Many thanks

Piers

Sounds like a situation for getting some competitive quotes to me. If someone reliable with proper qualifications can do the properties for less than £600, put this to your main man and ask for a discount, especially if you have an ongoing relationship and can prove you are a reliable payer. Having a couple of days without travelling around between sites ought to be worth something to him too - and only one invoice to prepare! However don't push the price too hard: eventually you pay peanuts and get monkeys, and a value ought to be attributed to your own peace of mind as well as the apparent day rate.

I have got a single gas safety certificate for only £30. Check out here: https://www.landlordsafetycertificate.co.uk/gas-safety-certificate/
