If it’s time for your gas safety test?
Essex’s Gas Safety Testing & Certification
If you are renting your property out to a tenant, or you are living in a rented property, you will want to know what the legislation regarding landlord certificates entails. The law currently states that a landlord must hold a CP12 Gas Safety Certificate when renting a place out. The certificate must be issued by a registered Gas Safe engineer such as the team at Georgio’s.
As a tenant, you should make sure you see a copy of the certificate and check that it is in date. Your landlord or agent should give you one when you move into a new place, or within 28 days of a new certificate being issued.
To ensure you are compliant as a landlord, we can complete the safety checks for your property in the Southend area. It is not only a legal requirement, but it also gives you peace of mind. The last thing you want as a responsible landlord is for a boiler in your property to be dangerous. A regular schedule of boiler servicing will protect you as a landlord because it helps prevent against unexpected breakdowns.
Being contacted unexpectedly by your tenant letting you know that the heating isn’t working or the hot water has failed is a landlord’s nightmare. You have to arrange for the boiler to be looked at, and then there are the unplanned costs to pay for. The easiest way to manage this situation is to have the boiler serviced at the same time as having your Gas Safety inspection each year.
If you prefer us to liaise directly with your tenants to make sure we can gain access to the property, then we are happy to do this for you. It is often easier for all concerned, especially if work is needed quickly. Let us know what you need and we will do our best to accommodate you.
