So we’re nearing exchange on our house and our buyers solicitor has asked for a copy of our hetas certificate for our woodburning stove. Hi, I am in the (long) process of purchasing a 4 bed detached property. We have now been told that the wood burner does not have any. Just realized that in the heat of battle renovation, I forgot completely to get a HETAS certificate for our open fireplace, which Im guessing BC will.
