Since 2016, the professional team at Hoopla have been helping landlords in Henley on Thames, Marlow, Caversham, Windsor, Beaconsfield, and Reading to make sure that their properties are safe and legally compliant. Legally a landlord must always have a current certificate showing that a Gas Safe registered engineer has checked and tested all gas appliances in their property. From a safety point of view, carbon monoxide is one of the biggest concerns. It’s a colourless, odourless, and tasteless gas that can be deadly if allowed to accumulate in a room. Carbon monoxide is created in the process of burning fuel and an undetected leak can prove fatal. Checking appliances for carbon monoxide leaks is a key part of the landlord certificate. In addition to checking for carbon monoxide, all gas appliances have a safety inspection ensuring that there are no faults that could endanger tenants. Once the inspection has been completed, a full report and the certificate are given to the landlord. If it’s discovered that any work is required, we will provide a competitive quote, talk you through what is required and make sure that your property is safe before we leave.
Do I need a Gas Safety Certificate?
Landlords with any gas appliances in their properties are required to have an inspection carried out annually. This applies to holiday lets, B & B’s, hotels, hostels, and chalets. They are also required to give a copy of the certificate to their tenants either on occupation or within 28 days of the certificate being issued. Hoopla has many years of experience working with landlords and have made this essential service convenient and simple. We are happy to liaise directly with tenants to arrange a convenient access time. Our experienced and professional engineers will be on-site for approximately 45 minutes and will ensure that there is minimal disruption and that the property will be left as clean and tidy as we found it. Hoopla offers competitive pricing for issuing landlords certificates and discounts are available for multiple properties. Contact our knowledgeable team for advice, pricing, and any other commercial plumbing and heating needs.
As a landlord, it is extremely important that your certification is up to date and the checks are done as they fall due. If you allow your certificate to run out, it may invalidate any property insurances or manufacturer’s warranties on appliances. Untested appliances could even result in the injury or death of a tenant. Let the team at Hoopla deal with all of your certification requirements and make sure that your properties are both safe and legal. While our engineers are on-site, we will be happy to look at any other plumbing or heating issues that you may be experiencing and provide a competitive quote for any work that is needed. Hoopla is your local plumbing and heating business, working with landlords and providing certification across Henley on Thames and the surrounding areas.
