Servicing and Landlord Certificates
ParCo Plumbing and Heating offer a range of services to landlords in London, Surrey and Kent. Landlords’ services include annual gas safety checks by fully qualified Gas safe engineers.
Gas safety inspections are a legal requirement for every landlord and is a must before you rent out to any tenants.
Gas safety inspections are a legal requirement. Your rental property must have an up-to-date Landlords Gas Safety Certificate CP12 for each appliance. If you require an annual service, we can send you an annual reminder as there is a lot at stake if an inspection is missed. Tenants may not always be aware of the dangers of gas escapes or faulty appliances and the responsibility lies with the landlord to ensure every gas appliances has an annual safety check.
We like to make sure that both landlord and tenant are properly protected as faulty or damaged equipment could emit a lethal carbon monoxide gas (CO) which might put a family or tenant at serious risk.
As a landlord, you will know that safety is of the utmost importance to ensure your tenants’ gas appliances are working safely including gas fires, cookers and boilers etc. Booking an annual service by professional gas and heating engineers, will ensure that heating systems, boilers and smaller appliances are working efficiently, safe and economical. An appliance that isn’t serviced regular may not be performing at its best being less efficient costing more to run.
Annual servicing is also a requisite of manufacturers’ warranties. If a future claim arises for a replacement, as a landlord, you will need to prove the boiler has been serviced annually otherwise it would make the warranty void.
ParCo Plumbing and Heating engineers are registered with the IGEM (institution of Gas Engineers and Managers).
All of our Gas Safe Engineers carry a Gas Safe ID card which has their unique licence number with Gas Safe Register. On the back of the card are details of the gas appliances the engineers are qualified to work on.
