If you're a landlord looking to rent your property out to new tenants, it's your responsibility to arrange the gas safety testing of your appliances. Our team in Clacton-on-Sea are fully qualified to provide the checks you need, and with annual reminders and electronic records emailed directly to you, we make the whole process as simple as possible.
We provide electronic Gas Safety Records that are emailed to you direct on receipt of payment.
You will receive an automatic email reminder annually 1 month prior to the due date.
We provide a Gas Safety Check and Boiler Service to ensure you comply with your maintenance responsibilities.
We can arrange appointments directly with your tenant and will notify you once arranged.
Our Gas Safe engineers can carry out any necessary repairs as and when they arise.
A Landlord Certificate will not be issued unless we service the appliance or proof is provided that it has been serviced within the last 12 months.
If a tenant misses a pre-arranged visit without giving 24 hours notice, or has run out of gas, the Landlord will incur a charge.
A Gas Safety Check involves a Gas Safe registered engineer inspecting your gas appliances. They will check the appliance is working correctly and will check the following four areas:
Gas appliances are on the right setting and burning correctly with the correct operating pressure
Harmful gases are being removed from the appliance safely to the air outside
Ventilation routes are clear and working properly
All safety devices are working
The check will identify any defects that require remedial work.
If you let a property equipped with gas appliances, you have 3 main responsibilities:
• Annual Boiler servicing
• Landlord gas safety certificates
• Qualified gas safety testing
• LPG Qualified
• Boiler repairs
• Boiler maintenance
• Boiler replacements
• Performance regulation
• Increased efficiency
Maintenance - Pipework, appliances and flues must be maintained in a safe condition. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with manufacturer instructions. If these are not available, then an annual service is recommended.
Record - A record of the annual gas safety check must be provided to the tenant within 28 days of the check being completed or to new tenants before they move in. Landlords must keep copies for 2 years.
Our services in Clacton-on-Sea will ensure that your property can be rented out legally. Call us today on 01255 422401.
Regular servicing is essential to ensure the safe and efficient operation of gas appliances. Whilst a gas safety check assesses the basic safety of a gas appliance, a service will consist of a full check of a gas appliance and the engineer is likely to take the appliance apart to inspect it. The Gas Safe registered engineer will assess the physical condition of the appliance, installation pipework, air vents and any flues for deterioration. They will carry out performance tests and take any necessary remedial action. Appliances should be serviced annually and in accordance with manufacturer's instructions. Servicing regularly will make sure the appliance is safe and will also maintain your appliances efficiency and performance. Not having your gas appliance regularly serviced may affect your warranty.
