The HETAS certificate is a certificate of compliance, records the work and will be used to notify the Local Authority Building Control Department which is a legal requirement. This document will also be used to validate your home insurance and be required by solicitors if you sell your home.
Does my stove installation need to be approved?
Yes, failure to notify the local authorities can be an offence depending on where you live resulting in enforcement action being taken against the householders/installers, which could cost anything up to £5000 .
