Gas Safety Inspections
Among various other inspections. Once successfully complete your Gas Safety certificate will detail the following:
The address of the property we inspected
Any defects which have been identified and the action which has been taken
The registration number, name and signature of the engineer who performs the inspection
The name of the Landlord and their address
A description of each appliance/flue that has been inspected
If you are a landlord, you are held responsible by the Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations of 1998 to ensure all gas appliances, flues and fittings in the property are deemed safe and working correctly. Poor maintenance and safety checks can result in extremely dangerous Carbon Monoxide being leaked. For example, if your flue is operating incorrectly it will not be efficiently removing the resulting gases from combustion.
As documented above, a Landlords Gas Safety check must be completed every 12 months. You must ensure maintenance and repairs of flues, pipework in the property and appliances. This only applies to appliances you supply to your tenant.
As a landlord, you must issue a copy to your tenant within a time frame of 28 days from the certificate being completed by a Gas Safe® registered engineer. If you are a Landlord with multiple properties we may be able to offer a slightly discounted rate. Please contact us to discuss. If you require a gas safety certificate for the sale of a home we can help with this, these are often asked for by solicitors as part of the conveyancing process.
We currently carry out gas safety certificates for people who have international students studying at Liverpool School of English staying with them, this is one of their requirements. Also, we do gas safety certificates for foster carers.
