Gas Safety Checks
We carry out the required safety checks on all the gas appliances and issue you with a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate. This must be given to the tenant in the property and especially to new tenants before they are about to occupy any premises. Landlords must keep their copies for two years. This is not a pass or fail certificate but one that records what the state of the gas appliances and pipework.
If we find any defects, we will need the Landlord's authorisation to do the remedial work so that we can we can record that remedial action has been taken and that the premises and the appliance are safe.
We are obliged to report dangerous gas situations to the Health and Safety Executive. We are also obliged to disconnect any dangerous appliances that we believe to be dangerous. These situations are where:
- There has been a design, construction, installation, modification or maintenance fault that is liable to result in an escape of gas, improper combustion or the products of combustion not being safely discharged to the outside atmosphere
- A fault that is likely to cause death or injury.
