“The standard which the vast majority of companies/engineers are completing gas safety checks to is appalling! This is not helped by a large number of letting agents that will not give work to engineers who do the job properly so they can avoid dealing with issues or having difficult conversations with their landlord clients.
If you’re using a company that works for these sorts of companies/people, then you’re likely to get the same low-quality workmanship at your property. If you want to make sure your tenants are safe and your property meets current regulation, then you need to use a company like us ”
What We Offer:
- A platinum quality boiler service included in the price*
- A paper copy of the certificate left on-site

Landlord Legal Requirements
Landlords’ are responsible for the safety of your tenants. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 covers the duties of landlords’ to make sure gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants are safe to use. This extends to communal areas that may be used by tenants.
Landlords’ are responsible for the maintenance and repair of flues, appliances and pipework provided for tenants. To do so, they must ensure that they use a Gas Safe registered engineer. Although there is no set timeframe in which these duties are to take place, good practice would be to demonstarate regular, annual maintenance checks and require repairs in a timely fashion.
Landlords’ are legally responsible to ensure that an annual gas safety check is carried out within 12 months gas appliance/flue installation and then annually every year after that, again by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. Landlords’ are to keep a record of the gas safety check for 2-years and issue a copy to each existing tenant within 28 days of the check being completed. All new tenants must be issued a copy before they move in.
Under a recent amendment of the Regulations in 2018, landlords’ can have the annual gas safety check undertaken up to 2 months before the date the check needs to be carried out and still retain the original deadline date.
