Gas Safety Certificates 

 

A landlord or letting agent must, by Law, have an annual inspection of gas supply and gas appliances. This must be carried out by a Registered Engineer.

  

A Registered Gas Engineer must check all gas appliances in rented accommodation every year. This is compulsory under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1994.

 

Failure to comply with these regulations as a Landlord may lead to prosecution and/or imprisonment with fines up to £25,000.

  

 

It is the responsibility of the landlord/agent to arrange for yearly inspections to be carried out. It should be ensured that a written report on the condition of each appliance is produced and a copy be retained by the landlord/agent and a copy provided to the tenant.

 

It is imperative you keep a record of when each appliance was checked and any defects found and repaired. This record should be made available to the tenants on moving into the property within 28 days of the annual inspection being carried out.

At Expert Survey Solutions we can provide Gas Safety Certificates on a one-off basis or for portfolios of properties. All checks arranged through ESS are carried about by reliable, trustworthy and most importantly Gas Safe Registered engineers.

 

Gas Safety Certificates and annual services are available at great prices. Please call for further assistance.

  • Adam Comiskey of Expert Survey Solutions emailed me with a very professional offer, some helpful advice. I subsequently booked Mr Comiskey.

    He gave me a list of requirements in advance, called to apologise when he got stuck in traffic which delayed his arrival slightly, and provided lots of useful advice during and after the survey.

    He was an absolute pleasure to deal with and delivered the EPC on time, and followed up a note of thanks for the business and some further tips on recommendations. Jeremy - Hertfordshire
