Gas Safety Certificates

At Sargeant and Son Ltd safety is of paramount importance and all of our qualified fitters are Gas Safe Registered and are certified to undertake landlord gas safety inspections.

Under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, landlords who rent either all or part of a property have a legal obligation, to have all household gas appliances and pipes checked every 12 months with a landlord gas safety certificate to this effect.

A Landlord Gas Safety inspection covers the following:

  • Check for any evidence of unsafe operation and report to the person responsible.
  • Test flue flow to ensure removal of products of combustion
  • Check appliance for gas tightness
  • Check standing and working pressures if test points are available
  • Check burner pressure/gas rate against manufacturer’s guidelines
  • Check for satisfactory provision of all necessary ventilation
  • Check satisfactory operation of all the flame failure devices
  • Check for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets (where appropriate)

Copies of these documents must be kept for 2 years, with copies issued to each new tenant within 28 days of them moving into a property.

We offer a professional no-nonsense service which is reliable and efficient at a competitive price. Whether you are a landlord or homeowner, it is imperative to have all of your gas appliances checked annually for safe operation and to reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning.
