Gas Safety Inspections and Landlord Gas Safety Certificates

Property Safety take gas safety seriously and all of our Gas Safe™ Registered engineers are qualified to undertake gas safety inspections.

Landlords - in 1996, the government passed a law that requires all landlords renting either part or all of a property to have all household gas appliances and pipes checked every 12 months with a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate. These must be kept for 2 years. Any Landlord failing to adhere to this law could face prosecution and possibly a prison sentence.

Private Property Owners - please consider a safety inspection as carbon monoxide is sometimes referred to as the “silent killer”. Every year in the UK, over 200 people go to hospital with suspected carbon monoxide poisoning, which leads to around 40 deaths. Those at particular risk include: babies and young children, pregnant woman and people with heart or breathing problems.

Read an NHS guide to carbon monoxide poisoning.
