    I cannot begin to believe that you are happy to spend thousands on training and registration to cover the backside of an illegal installer who cannot be bothered.

    I hope you get caught.

    Sorry its taken a while to get back to you been busy signing boilers off 32 to be exact 60 pound a throw.
    Well in eyes of the hsc and the LAW I am deemed competent and like people say on here if I get caught I will face the music.The biggest law breakers are gsr ripping off the tradesmen who pay there wages .all they are are legal con man/woman.maybe I am a fool but a richer one at that.who are the bigger fools anyway giving thousands to gsr so you can go earn a living

    Hang on. I've rented out my own house at times and no Corgi (as it was) or Gas Safe installer has ever asked who fitted the boiler.

    So I fail to understand how Gas Safe means unregistered appliances are never inspected? Or is there some kind of national register against which all Landlord's Certificates are compared? If so, I can only assume my boiler was fitted by a registered installed because nobody has ever contacted me to say otherwise.

    How does the system work?

    Gsr charge 360 odd pounds plus vat to register for the first time than a futher 150pounds for every year.if you lapse a year they than charge you the initial fee of 360 again. now if that not ripping trademan off what is.they are the legal crooks.when corgi was 1st set up it was free I don t begrudge paying some sort of fee but they are judt a greedy organisations.that are taking advantage of the people that keep them in a job.yes ee all have over heads and they do need to make a profit and they are making a massive one.if I can help someone out and make abit of money in the process I will its what gas safe are doing to us.i would never sign something off if I thought it was unsafe.if its against the law so be it most people break the law everyday one way or another

    Mooney.

    I can see your point why you do commision others installs.
    But here's where what your doing is wrong!

    But you have done the training, pay your registration, do the paperwork, pay insurance and have the knowledge to do your job in the gas industry. You are making the problem of unregistered installers worse, because £60 an install is cheap to get your job signed off. What's the point of being registered??
