Gas Safety Certificates for Southampton Premises

Gas safety certificates are required by law for properties that are rented out, whether it’s a flat or house and used as a permanent residence or a holiday let. A certificate is also needed for hotels, B&Bs and hostels. For the domestic home, it might not be a legal obligation, but booking a No1PHD heating engineer to check your gas appliances will put your mind at ease. Our team cover the Southampton area and are gas safe registered, fully qualified and insured, so give us a call to arrange an inspection today.

When is a gas safety certificate required?

Who needs a gas safety certificate? Landlords must have a valid certificate – called a CP12 – when they rent out a property that has gas appliances fitted. Even if the place is only let out temporarily. To be valid, the certificate must have been issued by a Gas Safe registered engineer and it must be less than 12 months old. HMOs, apartments, bedsits and houses all require a landlord’s certificate, and the documentation should be provided to renters and their agents. If you own or manage a B&B, hotel or school, then these premises also need a gas safety certificate. At No1PHD we have experienced Gas Safe engineers who are qualified to complete a check for you and issue a certificate. Get in touch if you’d like to place a booking for a Southampton property or ask us more about what you need to do.

For homeowners, a gas safety check is not a legal requirement, but if you have recently moved into a new place in Southampton, it’s a good idea to have one carried out. That way you know that any gas fires, hobs, ovens and boilers are safe to use.

What to expect from a gas safety check?

Gas Safety certificates or landlord checks involve a thorough inspection of all the gas appliances in a building. The focus is on making sure everything is completely safe to use. A check ensures each appliance is appropriately placed, not omitting toxic fumes and working in the manner it was designed. Once completed, the certificate is issued providing landlords written proof that every gas appliance fitted is appropriate for its purpose. As the check should be carried out every 12 months, it’s a good idea to have a check performed at the same time as an annual boiler service. Make an appointment with No1PHD so our Southampton based engineers can carry out your gas safety check and keep you compliant with the regulations.

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

How long does it take to get a gas safety certificate?

At No1PHD we are experienced at carrying out these checks, so it won’t take one of our Gas Safe engineers very long at all to complete. When we arrive at your Southampton property we will:

  • Thoroughly check the gas boiler
  • Check over the gas hob
  • Inspect the oven if it’s gas
  • Take a close look at any gas fires
  • Complete a detailed report
  • Issue the certificate before we leave
  • Replace any part we have removed as part of the inspection
  • Make sure no mess is left behind

If the appliances are not compliant then we can let you know what needs to be done. We can also arrange a quote for central heating repairs if you want.

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.
