New gas appliances do not need a safety certificate for the first year.It is assumed to be correct due to its age.

The developer is not renting the property out you are,at the end of the first year you will need a certificate or if the house is older than the year you say it is, houses can take up to five years to sell.

You might find it one less problem to have the test though as most people will ask for it.
Your gas engineer can also check things have been done right for you.

Don't believe me ? see below.
