Landlord Gas Services
It’s vitally important that, as a landlord, you ensure that your properties are properly looked after. At TBQ Gas we can partner with you to ensure that the homes or commercial buildings you rent out are safe to live and work in, so that you aren’t falling foul of the law.
One of the most common services we carry out for landlords are the annual gas safety checks with gas safety certificates. We’ll visit the property and inspect all of the gas appliances, flues and fittings to make sure there are no leaks or signs of wear and tear. We’ll then give you your gas safety certificate, along with leaving a copy for the tenant, which will detail any safety concerns we might have.
If you don’t get a gas safety certificate, or you let an existing one expire, you’re breaking the law and if caught could be handed a large fine or a prison sentence. Gas safety is extremely important and not following the legislation will land you in serious trouble.
You also need to ensure that the appliances in your property are properly serviced. Gas services are more in depth than a safety check, and involve cleaning the appliance and carrying out full tests of all the functions to make sure it is all working correctly and efficiently. Services extend the life of your appliances too, so if you don’t want to spend large sums on replacement boilers or gas fires, make sure to get an annual service booked in.
Finally, we’re also here if you have any emergency problems. If the boiler breaks down for your tenants, you are obligated to make sure it is fixed quickly. We can also deal with plumbing emergencies such as burst water pipes or water tank leaks.
If you need a gas safety engineer in the North West for your rented home or commercial property, give us a call. We’re happy to take on one-off jobs or work on a partnership basis for ongoing maintenance and safety checks.
