Gas flame

Does a qualified surveyor go into detail on the serviceability of the gas supply?

This will mean gas related areas such as the gas pipe route for example, in addition to gas related appliances e.g. fixed external ventilation hearths. However, the Bishops Lydeard RICS surveyor won't remove external fittings or housings and won't do any tests of any kind on the serviceability of the system. Most people are aware that gas can be unsafe, if you have any concerns about gas fittings, call a gas safe engineer.

Regulations stipulate that all landlords are legally required to carry out appliance and installation inspections every year. Non compliance penalties include heavy fines .

Shocking Electrics

When I viewed a property I am meaning to purchase, it appeared that there is evidence of an overload of the fuses; does the Bishops Lydeard surveyor report on the general state of the electrical system?

A Surveyor should also report back on things like ascertaining the condition of any fixed electrical appliances such as electric showers or the state of miniature circuit breakers.
