can you please advise who i can contact to seek advise
I am on a static caravan site which i have been on coming up 40 years
the site has been owned by Tingdene for the past 8 years
all owners were asked to have a gas and electric tests on their caravans and produce certificates
they are now telling owners a gas safety certificate has to be produced every year
owners of caravans do not sublet and some may only use their caravan twice a year
where may i seek advise as to whether it is legal to require caravan owners to produce this yearly certificate at a cost of approx £45
as far as i am aware gas certificates on caravan sites are only required for caravans which are sublet for payment
please advise

We have a static caravan in our garden and get an annual gas service and check for safety reasons even though we don't rent it out. £45 a year seems a small price to pay to make sure it is safe.

Less than a quid a week looks like a bargain to me compared to the possibility of an unexpected flying lesson...

Even if you only use your van for only a few times an annual safety check ensures that it is safe.
As static caravana are connected to gas bottles via flexible Pipes which are exposed to the elements they can deteriorate quicker than those on a tourer.
Safety is foremost.
