A valid certificate will then be supplied to the landlord and tenant.
This inspection needs to be carried out annually to make sure that all appliances supplied by the landlord are safe.
A visual inspection of the property will be carried out including RCD’S, an earth loop test on 50% of sockets and PAT testing on up to six appliances.
All appliances should be serviced annually in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions to maintain the life span of their appliance.Following a tightness test on the meter and pipe work all gas appliances will be fully serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions.
