Not that I am aware of but it would be a good idea for a buyer to request one. It would give them knowledge of the state of the present gas supply, pipework and appliance and allow them to negotiate for gas work if it was required. Safety is everything with gas in your new house and how would you know if it is safe without a report from a Gas Safe Registered heating engineer?

Sometimes the solicitor will ask for one I find. Sometimes they don’t. Some ask for a boiler service and not a gas safety check. Not sure why this is but I find it varies depending on who your solicitor is. But I would recommend asking for it to be done. I’ve been to many new home owners and the boiler. Needs replacing. The previous owner bodged it along to save the self money.

No, in short in legal terms. but actually yes you do on most occasions as the future owners and their Solicitors seek some assurances that the gas installation is safe and that the boiler is in working order. It is also down to the type of sale. where the seller may offer no suck assurances. Best solution is to get one from a safety point of view, but do speak with your sollicitor/law firm who are doing the conveyancing.
