A friend of mine is a tenant of a housing association who recently had her home modernised which included installation of a new gas heating system via a combi boiler. Some of the work is very shoddy but what concerns me is the discharge pipe from the pressure relief valve is situated directly above her back door and has not been turned into the wall which I thought was normal practice.
I'm preparing a snagging list and would have thought a gas safe certificate should have been provided to say that the appliance is working safely and installed correctly by a registered engineer....surely a RSL has the same responsibilities as a private landlord?

Any advice/opinions would be appreciated....Bill
