Gas Safety Test/Landlord Certificates
From £55* and from £45* per additional appliance.
The gas safety test will ensure the appliance is safe to use for the next 12 months, subject to passing current regulatory requirements. However it is wise to have a full service the following year.
A gas safety certificate plus a report on the condition of your gas appliance will be issued if your appliance meets current regulations. This will also give you a good indication of any future work required.

How to check your gas engineer is registered to do your gas work.
When you call a gas engineer to carry out any gas work make sure he is competent to do so. Ask to see his/her Gas Safe ID card and check:
Is the picture on it the person standing in front of you.
Check the registration number. Mine is 535829.
Is it in date.
Turn it over and check the elements. This is a list of work this person is qualified to do. If it isn't listed then the engineer isn't allowed to do the work. For instance, I can do all domestic work but am not allowed to touch commercial gas installation.
If in doubt phone Gas Safe on 0800 408 5500 or check on line at
A gas engineer will never mind you checking.
Please note Gas Safety cards are issued annually so check the dates.
