WHAT, 2 years before I can paint my gate.

Is this just a Mafia extortion racket?

Butane/propane gas installations have to be checked every five years. Piped gas I have no idea, since we don't have it where I live.

That is indeed in France where, if you don't do it, you potentially void your insurance and do void it if something occurs that is related - that also means you have no cover for related damage to adjoining/nearby buildings.

Just to emphasis that point, in our village, if you wanted to do a small job, you just went to the ayuntamiento with a brief description of works, pay the token fee and walk out with a bit of paper.

The bigger the works the more interested they were re. regulations, the more you pay and the longer you would have to wait.

TBH for many small jobs, painting etc. and internal stuff no one bothered.

So, are you saying there is a law for this or do you mean that the installation SHOULD be checked regularly?

If so, by whom? It certainly doesn't have to be Repsol

I’m of the understanding, and maybe I’m wrong as I don’t know for sure. I thought, that if your gas butano contract is with Repsol, they need to review it every five years, they check the connections, ventilation etc and issue a new certificate. Ours is due this coming September, so I am interested in whether I have this right or wrong.,
