Here at J&P Group we are highly experienced at looking after the gas safety requirements of landlords in the London area – from housing associations to those looking after a single property – of course we also install and repair gas appliances for landlords.
We are used to dealing with all aspects of process and will provide swift and reliable results for our clients.
Requirements By Law
All residential rental properties by Law require an annual Gas Safety Certificate; and this includes a check of all gas appliances within the property by a Gas Safe registered engineer to ensure they are safe to use and working correctly. Sometimes these are referred to as a ‘Landlords Gas Safety Certificate’.
You are responsible for the maintenance and repair of flues, appliances and pipework which you own and have provided for your tenants use by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Although there is no prescribed time frame for these duties, good practice would be the demonstration of regular, annual maintenance checks and subsequent repairs.
Proof of Safety Standards
The Gas Safety Certificate will tell you the gas appliance or gas fitting has been checked to see if it is working safely and meets the correct safety standards.
Gas Safety Certificates are required by law because unmaintained and poorly serviced gas appliances can emit carbon monoxide which in extreme cases can be lethal and have caused deaths.
Are you a Landlord?
By law you are required to employ a Gas Safe registered engineer to undertake an annual gas safety check and provide your tenant with a copy of the current Gas Safety Record.
Are you a tenant?
The law requires your Landlord to undertake an annual gas safety check and provide you with a copy of the current Gas Safety Record.
