Helping you stay on top of your property’s plumbing
Ensure the gas system in your property is safe for your tenants
As a landlord you have complete responsibility for the gas safety of your property. If you employ somebody who doesn’t inspect your property correctly then you are still liable if anything goes wrong.
Over the years we’ve seen a lot of engineers spend less than a few minutes at a property and sign a certificate without doing all the proper checks.
All our checks are completed thoroughly and we keep photographic evidence of every gas safety check.
We also use Trello to make communication between you and our team easier and more efficient.

Frequently asked questions for landlords
What is a landlord gas safety check, and why is it necessary?
A landlord gas safety check, also known as a CP12 certificate, is a legal requirement in the UK for landlords who rent out residential properties that have gas appliances. It involves a Gas Safe registered engineer inspecting all gas appliances, flues, and pipework to ensure they are safe to use. It's necessary to protect tenants from the risks of carbon monoxide poisoning, gas leaks, and fires caused by faulty gas appliances.
How often does a landlord need to conduct gas safety checks in rental properties?
Landlords are legally required to arrange an annual gas safety check by a Gas Safe registered engineer for all gas appliances and flues in their rental properties. This ensures that gas appliances remain safe to use and comply with legal obligations outlined in the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
What does a landlord gas safety check involve, and who can perform it?
A landlord gas safety check involves a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer inspecting all gas appliances, including boilers, gas cookers, and fires, as well as flues and pipework. The engineer checks for any defects, leaks, or ventilation issues that could pose a safety hazard. Only Gas Safe registered engineers are legally permitted to carry out gas safety checks.
What are the consequences of not conducting regular gas safety checks as a landlord?
Failing to conduct regular gas safety checks as a landlord can have serious consequences, including putting tenants' safety at risk and facing legal penalties. Landlords have a legal duty to ensure that gas appliances are maintained in a safe condition, and failure to comply with gas safety regulations can result in fines, imprisonment, invalidated insurance, or even prosecution if a serious incident occurs.
Are there any specific legal requirements or regulations regarding landlord gas safety checks that I should be aware of?
Yes, landlords in the UK must comply with the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, which outline their legal responsibilities for maintaining gas appliances and conducting annual gas safety checks. Landlords must provide tenants with a copy of the gas safety certificate (CP12) within 28 days of the check and keep records of checks for at least two years. It's essential for landlords to familiarize themselves with these regulations and ensure compliance to protect the safety of their tenants and avoid legal consequences.
