Gas Safety Inspection

A Gas Safety Inspection is an Annual legal requirement.

If you are a Commercial (Non-Domestic) Landlord, and rent part, or all, of a Property, this applies to you.

Our Gas Safe registered engineers are qualified to carry out such Inspections, which include:

  • Inspection and Testing of Gas Pipework
  • Inspection and Testing of Gas Appliances
  • Condition of Gas Meter
  • Flueing and Ventilation
  • Purge and Test Points

Only when the inspection and testings are proven as “Gas Safe” will the required Landlords Gas Safety Certificate, commonly known as a CP17, be issued. This Certificate is valid for a period of 12 months from the date of issue.

Failure to adhere or comply may render all Insurances on your Building, in the event of a claim, null and void.

Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 are clear, and state:

Part F 35
“it shall be the duty of every employer or self-employed person to ensure that any gas appliance, installation pipework or flue installed at any place of work under his control is maintained in a safe condition to prevent the risk of injury to any person”

Part F 36(3)(a)
“ensure that each appliance and flue to which that duty extends is checked for safety within 12 months of being installed and at intervals of not more than 12 months since it was last checked for safety”

Part F 35(3)(c)
“ensure that a record in respect of the appliance or flue so checked is made and retained”

Landlords, or their Agents, have a legal obligation to:

  • Ensure that any Commercial (Non-Domestic) Building is “Gas Safe” via regular Servicing and or Maintenance
  • Ensure that a Gas Safety Inspection is carried on an Annual basis, or
  • Prior to the commencement of a new Tenancy
  • Retain Certification for a 2-year period
  • Ensure all Tenants have a copy of the Gas Safety Certificate
  • If the Gas Safety Inspection proves a Fail, Instruct works as identified for rectification
  • Failure to do so may lead to the involvement of the Health & Safety Executive (HSE)
  • Ensure all works are conducted by a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered Engineer
