Landlord Safety Certificates and Compliance
Gas Safety Certifications in Newcastle under Lyme and surrounds
Here at A&L we know how important the small things are, that’s why all our members of staff have all the necessary Landlords and Gas certificates in place so that you don’t have to worry about being on the Gas Safety Register.
It is a Landlord’s legal responsibility to keep their tenants safe, so that’s why with any property that has gas appliances equipped we can make sure that these 3 points are covered so that you are safe in your home:
- Maintenance: Pipework, Appliances and Flues must be maintained in a safe condition. We will service your Gas appliances annually and fix any issues that arise during that time.
- Gas safety checks: This must be done every 12 months and a Gas Safety check must be carried out on every gas appliance/flue in the property. 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 to your tenant within 28 days of the check being completed or to new tenants before they move in. Landlords must keep copies of the gas safety record for two years.
If you are a Landlord, your Gas Safety duties include any residential property, rooms let in bed-sit accommodations, private households, Bed and Breakfasts & Hotel Accommodations and finally any Rented Holiday Accommodation such as Chalets, Cottages, Flats and Caravans, for any duration of time.
You must make sure that if you have any Gas or Electrical Appliance in the property that they are safe to use and regularly checked.
