Gas Safety Inspections
and Landlord Gas Safety Certificates

S.A.Hancock take gas safety seriously and all of our Gas Safe Registered engineers are qualified to undertake gas safety inspections.

In 1996 the government passed a law that requires all landlords, who rent either part or all of a property, to have all household gas appliances and pipes checked every 12 months with a Landlord gas safety certificate to this effect.

What does a Landlord Gas Safety Inspection include?

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

Pre-Purchase Property Inspection

As a homebuyer you cannot always be sure when the gas appliances and/or plumbing and heating in your new home were last safety checked and serviced.

If your agent cannot provide a current gas safety record, we strongly advise you to get the gas appliances and plumbing & heating checked prior to completing the purchase of your new property. You should always make sure that anyone checking your gas appliances are Gas Safe registered and ideally, this check should include all gas appliances i.e. gas boiler, oven, hob or gas fire.

Equally, we can also check the safe working operation, age and quality of the central heating and plumbing systems, to give you more of an idea as to what your buying into. We do, however, operate a disclosure and will not take responsibility for purchases made reliant on the exact age or condition described by our engineers.
