More about Gas Safety Reports
In 1996 the government passed a law that requires all landlords who rent part, or all of a property, to have all gas appliances and pipe work checked and certified, to prove that the gas appliances meet gas safety standards, every 12 months. This applies to all gas appliances within the property
Boiler fault.com carries out Gas Safety inspections and is will to provide the corresponding certificates for landlords, once appliances have been checked and passed.

What does a Landlord Gas Safety Inspection Include?
Under the Gas Safe Register (previously CORGI) we will check the following during a Landlord gas safety inspection:

  1. Check appliance for gas tightness.
  2. Check standing and working pressure if test points available.
  3. Check burner pressure / gas rate against manufacturers data plate.
  4. Check for satisfactory provision of all necessary ventilation.
  5. Test flue flow to ensure removal of products of combustion.
  6. Check satisfactory operation of all the flame failure devices.
  7. Check for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets (where appropriate).
  8. Investigate any evidence of unsafe operation and report to a responsible person.

An appliance cannot be deemed as having been checked, until the above has been completed.

Once your property has passed the gas safety certification, we will schedule a return to your property every 12 months to keep your gas safety certificate up to date we will contact you 3 months prior to the due date of your certificate when our automated system generates your reminder.

If you need a urgent gas safety certificate call Boiler fault to book a gas safety inspection.
