Landlord Gas Safety Certificates
In accordance with the 1998 Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations, all landlords who let part or all of a property, including providers of temporary tenancies such as guest houses and holiday accommodation, are required to have household gas appliances and gas pipes checked every 12 months, with a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate to this effect.
As Gas Safe registered gas engineers, Greenserve are able to carry out these mandatory gas inspections and issue Gas Safety Certificates to landlords in Kensington and surrounding areas. As required by the same law, landlords must let their tenants have a copy of the certificate within 28 days. In order to ensure complete gas safety of the tenants and that of the premises, we also recommend that all landlords make sure their tenants know how to turn off the gas supply in the event of a leak.
Landlord Electrical Safety Certificates
Unlike gas regulations, there is no specific law in the UK demanding landlords to obtain an electrical safety certificate for the property they are letting. However, under the Landlords and Tenant Act 1985, landlords are binded to keep their electrical wiring in repair and in proper working condition. Additionally, electrical safety provisions are included in the Building Regulations – Part P, which refer to fixed electrical installations. It is highly recommended that landlords arrange periodic electrical inspections at least every 10 years and every time they change tenants, in order to ensure the safe use and functioning of sockets, light fittings and electrical appliances.
Providing qualified NICEIC engineers, Greenserve can carry out electrical work that adheres to the strict British Standard BS 7671 (IEE Wiring Regulations) and NICEIC regulations, allowing landlords across Kensington and the surrounding areas to meet their legal obligations concerning electrical safety. We provide the full range of electrical inspections and PAT testing, periodic reports and NICEIC certificates required for landlords.
