Government legislation now dictates that a Landlord must ensure that all Gas and Electrical elements in a property, have to be checked and deemed safe to use. We therefore offer a gas safety certificates and EPC’s, which are mandatory for any rented property.

We also offer Electrical PAT testing, which is a full check of all portable appliances in a property. While this is not mandatory, it is highly recommended that Landlords obtain this certificate.


Dependent on size of property


The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 deal with Landlords’ duties to make sure gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants are safe.

Landlords are responsible for the maintenance and repair of flues, appliances and pipework which they have provided for their tenants use. An annual gas safety check must be carried out within 12 months of the installation of a new appliance or flue and annually thereafter by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. Records should be kept of the safety check for 2 years and a copy issued to the tenant within 28 days of the check being completed or to any new tenants before they move in.


Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs), determine the energy efficiency of a property. As of 2009, every landlord or property owner who lets out their property to a private tenant, is legally obliged to obtain an EPC before the tenancy commencement. Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) are needed whenever a property is let and must be available for potential tenants before you market your property. An EPC gives a property an energy efficiency rating from A (most efficient) to G (least efficient) and it is valid for 10 years. An EPC contains information about a property’s energy use, typical energy costs and recommendations about how to reduce energy use and save money.


Landlords of residential accommodation have responsibilities for combating Legionnaires’ Disease. Health and safety legislation requires that landlords carry out risk assessments for the Legionella bacteria which cause Legionnaires’ Disease and thereafter maintain control measures to minimise the risk. Most rented premises will be low risk but it is important that risk assessments are carried out and control measures introduced.

The safest and simplest way to assess the risk of Legionella is to have the water in your rental property tested. We can attend your property with our testing kit and we will send it off to the lab to be tested, within a few days we will be able to let you know the outcome. We recommend this test is carried out annually, for piece of mind.


With rented residential accommodation it is the Landlord’s responsibility to ensure that the electrical installation and appliances provided by the landlord are safe when the tenancy begins and are in proper working order throughout the tenancy.

It is recommended that the  maximum period between tests of the electrical installation by an electrician is 10 years and although there is no obligation to test portable appliances, Landlords are required to ensure all appliances are safe to use for the duration of any tenancies. We would recommend having a PAT test carried out when you first let your property in the interest of starting off your career as a Landlord on the right foot.


A floor-plan shows potential tenants how your property is laid out, creating more interest in your property. We can create a 2D and 3D floorplan for your property.
