Gas Safety Certificate
All 4 Safe Certs – Gas Safety Certificate
Also known as a Landlord Gas Safety Record. This is a certificate issued that will detail exactly what checks our engineer has carried out for you and if the appliances checked meet the appropriate safety standards.
Every 12 months as a landlord, by law, under the Gas Safety ‘Installation and Use Regulations 1998’, it is the landlords responsibility to ensure the property has a Gas Safety Certificate. This can only be issued by a qualified ‘Gas Safe’ registered engineer that will check the properties pipe work, gas appliances and flues before issuing a valid certificate.
It is important to be aware who is responsible for your property ensuring this certificate is issued and does not lapse, especially if you are using an agent or management company. Our engineer keeps an electronic record of all Gas Safety Certs issued and will also email a copy of this to you, which you must keep for a minimum period of 24 months.
Each tenant must be provided with a copy of the properties Gas Safety Certificate before their move in date or within the first 28 days following the official inspection. At All 4 Safe Certs we recommend that when tennancy changes in your property that our engineers carry out an inspection to ensure the property is safe for new tenants.
