Gas safe certificates record gas works and inspections on gas appliances in rented properties. UK landlords are legally expected to ensure that Gas Safe certificates are completed by Gas Safe registered engineers. Gas certificates show the location, name of each gas appliance, the name, signature and registration number for the engineer carrying out the work, date of inspection the property details and further comments of recommendation and confirmation of all aspects of the checks. Gas safe certificates must be renewed twelfth-monthly and arranged by the landlord for gas engineers to perform the above.
Do you need gas safe certificates? Yes. To make sure you and your home are safe and to follow the gas safety legal requirements. Gas certificates are vital, because they demonstrate thorough gas inspections. Appliances that are not safe, causes gas leaks, possible gas explosions if exposed to a flame and gas poisoning.
