Once your inspections have been carried out, a Gas Landlord Safety Certificate (GLSC) will be issued to you as the landlord, as well as your tenants. It is your responsibility to maintain the appliances and you should keep records of any repairs or work done.
The fact is, gas appliances and their connection to the gas supply can be potentially hazardous to the health of your tenants if not adequately maintained. The most obvious is the risk of fire or explosion, but also the less well-recognised hazard of lethal carbon monoxide.
A KDE, gas safe engineer will routinely disconnect any appliance that is believed to be unsafe, such as cut-off valves, meters, water heaters, fires, flues or portable LPG units.
Carbon monoxide kills an average of 28 people per year and many more will suffer mild to chronic symptoms as a result of breathing the fumes unknowingly.
Leave it to us at KDE to inspect, test and maintain your gas appliances and installations in your premises across Cheshire. We will ensure everything is checked by a registered gas safe engineer and the required safety certificates are issued. By issuing a GLSC we provide peace of mind to you and your tenants that the gas appliances in your properties are well maintained and safe to use.
