Landlord & Commercial Gas Safety Certificates
What is a Gas Certificate?
A Gas Certificate can only be provided by a fully qualified Gas Engineer. The gas certificate certifies that all gas pipes and appliances are installed and working correctly and safely. This includes Boilers, Water Heaters, Fires, Ovens, and Hobs.
Many domestic and commercial properties in the United Kingdom require a 'Gas Safety Certificate' each year. All landlords require a gas certificate as this is an annual requirement for any rented property.
Whether it is a domestic or commercial gas system, Surtees Plumbing & Heating can carry out a gas test each year and provide you with the required gas certificates. Our checks can also identify and prevent any potential problems in your central heating system. In relation to these certificates Surtees Plumbing & Heating are vastly experienced, fully qualified, and 'Gas Safe' registered.
Why may I need a Gas Safety Certificate?
For both commercial and rented properties it is a Legal requirement in the UK to hold a valid 'Gas Safety Certificate'. This is to ensure the safety of everybody who uses the building. Landlords are required by law to supply tenants with a valid gas certificate within the first 28 days of the tenancy. Potential leak problems can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning, which could be lethal. A gas certificate shows that all gas appliances within the premises are safe and meet the required legal standards. Certificates are valid for a period of 12 months so therefore will need to be renewed each year. As a result it is important to check when your current gas certificate expires.
What if I don’t have a valid Gas Certificate?
If you are required to have a valid gas certificate and you do not have one severe penalties can be imposed. These penalties can range from a large fine to even having the entire building shut down. These actions can prevent your business from being able to trade, or stop you from renting your property out to tenants.
At Surtees Plumbing & Heating we can carry out a gas test and boiler service at your property each year, ensuring that you always hold a valid 'Gas Certificate'. This is particularly important for companies as well as landlords. We provide many gas certificates for properties all throughout Berkshire, Hampshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, and the surrounding South-East regions
A Safety Certificate, Boiler Certificate, CP12 certificate, Landlord Gas Safety Record, Landlord Gas Safety Inspection or Landlord Gas Safety Check, will include the following:
Check appliance for gas tightness
