I’ve lost my gas/electrical certificates; will that stop me moving?
There is no legal imperative for you to provide either the gas or electrical safety certificates as the seller; you are required to provide a gas safety certificate on an annual basis, however, if you are planning on letting the property out. The Institution of Electrical Engineers recommends that an electrical certificate be updated at least every ten years or when the property is transferred to a new owner (every 5 years if you are letting the property out).
However, this usually means that this is the responsibility of the buyer with the onus on organising an inspection for a new certificate falling on them.
