The Cost of a Gas Safety Certificate

Gas Safety Certificates costs are not fixed. There is not a one size fits all when it comes to pricing. This is because a number of factors affect the price of a gas certificate. These include:

  • Where you live
  • The number of gas appliances you have
  • The type of property you live in

Do I Need a Gas Safety Certificate?

A valid Gas Certificate is a legal requirement for Landlords under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 . You must get a gas certificate from a qualified professional assessor. They will inspect your property according to the government-specified regulations. A gas safety check is required every 12 months. This ensures gas appliances and fittings in your property are working correctly.

How Much Does My Gas Safety Certificate Cost?

As mentioned prices vary depending on several variables. Some companies offer a fixed price service which includes checking a fixed number of appliances, usually a boiler and hob. If you have extra items this will cost you more. Other companies quote per item. This may or may not cost you more or save you money depending on your situation.


If you are shopping around and comparing prices, make sure you compare like with like. Find out exactly what is being checked for the price you are quoted. A cheaper quote may end up being more expensive if you have to pay for additional checks.

What Factors Affect the Cost of a Gas Safety Certificate?

The most common factors impacting the amount you will pay for a gas safety certificate include:

The Type of Property

Is your gas certificate for a residential, commercial, or new-build property? A commercial gas certificate costs more than a residential one. This is due to the time to complete the assessment. There are normally more appliances and the appliances are bigger. For example a large industrial boiler, heating several floors covering thousands of square feet, will take a lot more time to check then a small residential one heating a 2 bed house.

Where is your property located? Costs can be higher in some parts of the UK than others. Typically, big cities like London have higher gas safety certificate costs. Although if you live in more remote parts of the country costs could be higher. This is due to the difficulties in getting an assessor out to you. The transports costs and time to travel to you will be reflected in the price.

Number of Appliances

The number of appliances you have in your property also affect the price. The more appliances you have, the higher the cost. On average, the cost of a gas certificate for a property with 1 boiler, gas hob, and fireplace can range from £34 – £90. If you have a gas fire in multiple rooms, two boilers and a hob then you would pay more then someone who just needed their boiler and hob checked.

Multiple Gas Safety Certificates

If you are getting more than one property assessment some companies may offer a discount. By combining services for different property certificates such as energy performance certificates, boiler assessments, SAP, and EICRs can lead to lower prices being charged.
Some companies may offer discounts if you get your next 3+ gas assessments from them too.


It’s often a good idea when you get your annual gas safety certificate to also get servicing done at the same time. Many companies offer discounts for booking the two together. Servicing keeps your appliances in good working order and can prevent more costly repairs and emergency callouts later. By combining the two you save money over ordering them separately.
