Hello,
We have been issued a bill for 158.62 inc. VAT for an annual gas safety check (1 boiler, fire & cooker), which is more than double what we paid last year & the previous year for the same thing from the same company. The bill states 'labour and material's, so I have written to the company asking for a breakdown, and they have written:
cost boiler service 50
fire service & materials 30
check cooker hob, landlords check and issue of cert. 55
totalling 135 & VAT 23.62 = 158.62.
Bill then states:- 'please note service charges are a separate thing from hrly rate work. It is very specialist work carried out. I have in front of me various prices from Corgi gas installers and also showroom prices all of which I do keep under as best I can'........

I have checked with the tenant and the inspection lasted 20-30 minutes. In our local area (Buxton), letting agents say that an inspection should cost c. 60 + VAT. I have tried ringing Trading Standards, but they say they don't deal with this sort of thing. Have you any suggestions?
