Minster Stoves & Heating offers landlord safety checks and certificates for properties in Herefordshire & the surrounding counties.
A Landlords Gas safety record, also referred to as a landlord certificate is a record which is required by law to be held for all rental accommodation in the UK where there are gas appliances present.
The law requires all gas appliances in a rented property to be checked annually, with a gas safety record being completed & a copy of the certificate provided to tenants.
Failure to produce valid gas safety certificates can result in prosecution, and can also invalidate the properties insurance, which in turn means as a landlord you may be liable for potentially expensive civil claims.
The landlord is responsible for this aspect of their tenants’ safety, and if non-compliance were to lead to a death from carbon monoxide poisoning or other catastrophe, the landlord could be charged with manslaughter.
A Landlords legal duties apply to a wide range of accommodation including:
Generous discounts offered for landlords with multiple properties – please ask us for a quote.
NOTE: A gas safety inspection is similar to a car “MOT”, no repairs or maintenance work is carried out, it is a safety inspection ONLY. A safety inspection is not a substitute for a service. Appliances should be serviced annually. If a service is carried out at the same time as a CP12 an extra charge of £20.00 applies.
