Being a Landlord can be rewarding and not just in a financial sense. Here at Thompson’s Gas we understand that the abundance of certificates, documents and regulations you need to have and comply with by law as a Landlord can be overwhelming. But they don’t have to be.
Our friendly team are delighted to be on-hand to answer any questions you have regarding Gas Safety or Energy Performance Certificates and your property. At the end of the day, we know you want the very best for your tenants’, health, safety and finances. That is why we’re proud to offer you a range of reliable and expert services to ensure you stay on the right side of the law and keep your tenants happy and healthy.
All properties that are either rented, sold or built require an Energy Performance Certificate by law. We’re proud to be official and accredited domestic energy assessors, meaning we can issue you with an Energy Performance Certificate for your property after checking the energy performance and efficiency of your building.
Similarly, the law states that gas inspections must be carried out by a qualified and Gas Safe registered engineer, such as those on our team, on all gas appliances within a Landlord’s property every 12 months or when a gas appliance is serviced, checked or maintained. The results of these checks are recorded on a Landlord Gas Safety Record and a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate issued to you.
We have landlords’ best interests at heart, here at Thompson’s Gas. Therefore, we have a specific procedure in place to make sure that the Landlord Gas Safety Check is carried out before the previous one expires in order to ensure you comply with legal legislation.
A Legionella risk assessment is a legal requirement and it’s the assessment of the water system and pipework that runs within your property. The risk assessment is valid for two years unless a significant change has been made to the water system and or use of the building has changed. We can use our experience and expertise to help you fulfil your duty as a landlord of preparing a scheme for preventing and managing the risk of Legionella bacteria. and make recommendations of how you can control any risk.
