Do you Need a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate? 

At MH Plumbing and Heating, we provide the most affordable gas safety certificates in the Altrincham, Sale, Urmston and Trafford Area. 

 
A landlord has a duty to do everything reasonably possible to ensure the safety of their tenants. According to UK government website NI Direct their responsibilities include the safety of gas (and electrical) appliances. 
 
We wrote this post to outline what this means in practice for landlords wishing to remain within the law, to keep their tenants safe, and to protect their investments from gas explosions. 
 

Building Regulations 

The Building Regulations require that new ‘heat producing appliances’ (boilers and fires) be reported to local authorities in England and Wales. 
 
The Building Regulations and Gas Safe rules furthermore require that Gas Safe registered businesses doing the work must report completed jobs to the local authority. 
 
However, the onus remains on the owners of the properties to ensure compliance with the regulations. Beware the cowboy installer who says you don’t need a landlord gas safety certificate for a new boiler.

Landlords are responsible for the safety of their tenants. Landlords should ensure that all gas appliances are working correctly and safely. A gas certificate can provide that security. 
Every rental property that has any sort of gas appliance, whether it be a central heating boiler, gas hob or even a gas fire, requires a Gas Safety Certificate. These certificates can only be issued by an engineer registered with the Gas Safe Register. 
All installation, maintenance and safety checks need to be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.Gas Certificates are valid for a year from the date they are issued. 
Our engineers provide free efficiency advice with every certificate helping you reduce your bills. Please ask one of our engineers how you could start saving on your energy bills. 
 
 
I've been using Mark's plumbing and heating services along with friends and family for around seven years now. During that time his service has always remained consistently very good. What I probably appreciate the most is his willingness to fit you in and help during the busiest of periods, which was the case when we had a hidden flood a few years ago. 
 
Most recently Mark has carried out a full Gas certification and advised on some plumbing issues. He's very well priced, fast and his aftercare service is excellent. I would highly recommend. 
Gareth, Urmston
