Landlords Gas Safety Certificate - (Minimum of 10 Properties)
Landlords are legally responsible for the safety of their tenants. Landlords should make sure maintenance and annual safety checks on gas appliances are carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
By law, landlords must make sure:
- pipe-work, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition
- that all appliances and flues that they provide for tenants use have an annual safety check
- that maintenance and annual safety checks are carried out by an engineer registered with Gas Safe Register
- all gas equipment (including any appliance left by a previous tenant) is safe or otherwise removed before re-letting
- a gas safety record is provided to the tenant within 28 days of completing the check or to any new tenant before they move in
- they keep a copy of the gas safety record for two years
Before any gas work is carried out always check the engineers ID card and make sure the engineer is qualified for the work you need doing. Encourage your tenants to do the same.
Which Gas Safety Certificate do I require?
We only inspect Residential Properties with a residential gas meter, pipework and appliances. If you need a Commercial Certificate please contact us.
Below are several common residential gas examples to help you find the right one for your property:
Gas Safety Certificate – Gas Meter Only £48+VAT
This certificate is required if you have no gas appliances in the property, but still have gas present. This type of setup is common in flats where the primary gas pipe work is in the basement and the gas pipe work is integrated into the building structure connected to a secondary meter. Whilst all the appliances could be electric, as the property still has gas present a gas tightness test is still required to check if it's safe. Also, some property owners still want to keep the gas pipework active so they are free to install gas appliances in the future. It is important that a tightness test is performed every year to ensure the gas pipe work integrity in the property.
Gas meter and pipework only
Gas Safety Certificate – 1 Appliance £57+VAT
The most common type of scenario for 1 appliance is when there is only a gas boiler in the property. Please note when an appliance is tested, the gas meter and pipework will also be inspected.
Gas Safety Certificate – 2 Appliances £65+VAT
The most common type of scenario for 2 appliances is when a landlord has a gas boiler and a gas hob. Please note when an appliance is tested, the gas meter and pipework will also be inspected.

Should All My Gas Appliances Be Tested?
By law, all gas appliances in a property have to be tested in an inspection, owned by the landlord. You cannot pick and choose which appliances to test, even if you had a new appliance installed within a year. A gas safety engineer can only certify a gas certificate or deem a property gas safe if all the appliances in the property have been tested
If you are still unsure how many appliances you have contact us to discuss or book one of our engineers.
