Earlier this year we totally refurbished a house which had previously been trashed by burglars. When the project was nearing completion we got a corgi registered gas fitter come and connect the new gas supply to the house and do a gas and safety check. This was done and we have the certificate on the 19th Feb 2013. Our decorators then had the central heating and gas fires on at the house to dry the plaster out and to finish thee d├ęcor.
A tenant finally moved in on the 1st April 2013. She informed us she could smell gas. We immediately sent the corgi registered installer round and he reported that the problem was with the supply . He sorted the problem out and we thought that was the end of the proble.
Now however we have just had a solicitors letter claiming we were negligent causing our tenant undue stress and personal damage and is claiming compensation.
Any help would be appreciated
