The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 requires landlords to obtain a Gas Safety Certificate for each property in their portfolio at least once a year. We also recommend you obtain a new certificate between a tenant moving out and a new tenant moving in to the property concerned.
All our local engineers are Gas Safe registered. This means the inspection proceeding your Gas Safe Certificate is conducted according to high EU standards.
A Gas Safety Certificate relates to all gas alliances, pipe work and flues contained in a single property. We offer this service to landlords and property management companies in the North West region. If you are a landlord who has appointed a property agent, ensure you understand where the responsibility for obtaining a Gas Safety Certificate lies. Since the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is known to prosecute landlords for failing to obtain a Gas Safety Certificate it is vital you comply with this important requirement.
Once issued, all Gas Safety Certificates must be retained for a period of two years. Click to read Gas Safe’s official guidelines on Gas Safety Certificates.
