Landlord Safety Certificates & Additional Services
We provide services for Letting Agents, Homeowners and Landlords.
If you are a Landlord you have a legal duty, under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, to maintain all appliances and flues, which you have provided for your tenants to use. You must have them checked for safety at least once every 12 months by a CORGI registered installer.
As part of our service we are happy to contact tenants on your behalf to book appointments and cover other maintenance responsibilities as described below.
For further services we can provide please review our services section.
For your convenience, we can provide electronic copies of your Gas Safe Certificates.
If you let a property equipped with gas appliances you have three main responsibilities:
• Maintenance: pipework, appliances and flues must be maintained in a safe condition. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If these are not available it is recommended that they are serviced annually unless advised otherwise by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
• Gas safety checks: a 12 monthly gas safety check must be carried out on every gas appliance/flue. A gas safety check will make sure gas fittings and appliances are safe to use.
• Record: a record of the annual gas safety check must be provided within 28 days of the check being completed. Landlords must keep copies of the gas safety record for two years.
All installation, maintenance and safety checks need to be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
If a tenant has their own gas appliance that you have not provided, then you are responsible for the maintenance of the gas pipework but not for the actual appliance.
