Morning Craig

We are instructed by our client to carryout operational tests if possible, i.e., if there is gas and electric available, then cap at the beginning of each void. We then go back on the day the new resident moves in, to uncap, service, safety check and new LGSR.

Our client, and we, are of the opinion that, regardless of the extend of the void works, anything can unwittingly happen during the void period, e.g. a nail through a gas pipe, flue/boiler boxed in, old cooker/fire removed leaving open end, etc. etc. By capping at beginning and uncapping upon occupation, you are able to manage those risks.
