Are you unsure whether or not you need a Gas Safety certificate? These reports are also known as Landlord Certificates or CP12s and are a legal requirement for properties that are let out. Long term or short term, if you rent a place to another person, you will need to have a valid gas safety certificate. To remain compliant with regulations, an inspection must be carried out by a gas safe registered engineer every 12 months. At No1PHD our team are trained to issue gas safety certificates in the Portsmouth area.
Landlords who own properties with gas appliances in any part of the building need to have an in-date certificate. This includes boilers, gas hobs, gas ovens and gas fires. A copy of the certificate must be made available to tenants, property managers and any agents involved. It must also be less than 12 months old. A house, flat, apartment or holiday home that is let either long term or as a short let needs a certificate. Other properties that need a Landlords certificate include:
If you own or are responsible for any of these kinds of properties in Portsmouth, then contact us at No1PHD and we can let you know what is required. Book an appointment with us and we will carry out the gas safety inspection when you need it. A report and certificate will be provided for your records.
Although it’s not a legal requirement, owners of a domestic home can have a safety check completed for peace of mind. This is useful when you move into a new home and want to be assured that the gas appliances are safe to use. The gas heating system, fire and cooker are included in the inspection. If you would like one of our No1PHD engineers in Portsmouth to check over your gas appliances and advise you of their safety, call us today on 01425 208031

Couldn’t have asked for a faster resolution to our drainage conundrum. Nothing was too much for these guys who were brilliant throughout.

We are experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to gas safety certificates in Portsmouth. The focus is on the safety of gas appliances in the building. There are specific details that must be checked, beginning with ensuring that the appliance is being used in the manner it was designed for. Next, the position of the appliances is looked at – it must be in an appropriate area of the building for its purpose. The boiler, fire or cooker must not be omitting toxic fumes of any kind and needs to be correctly ventilated. The landlord certificate inspection does not include a maintenance check – if you want a boiler service then we can book one of these for you too. After the inspection, a dated report is completed and if all the compliances are considered safe, the certificate is issued. The inspection doesn’t take very long to complete, and the certificate is available for tenants, managers and landlords as soon as the appliances pass.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
