Gas Safety Certificates

A gas safety certificate isn’t like a gas service. It is fundamentally planned to examine any gas burning appliances including fires, cookers (fixed or mobile), boilers and water heaters to make sure that they are working safely and efficiently. The gas safety check can only be performed by a gas fitter registered with the Gas Safe Register.

As part of the test, Upkeepone will examine and check all the gas appliances in the building. This includes gas fires, boilers, hobs, water heaters and cooking appliances. Most Importantly, Upkeepone will visually investigate domestic and non-domestic boiler flues and pipes, and perform tightness tests to make sure no explosive gases are escaping into the home.

Other key points, Upkeepone will examine the efficiency of the gas burning and make sure all safety devices are working as they should, and will also examine that ventilation routes are unblocked and operating well.

Faulty gas appliances are likely to develop gas (carbon monoxide gas) poisoning. CO is colourless, odourless and tasteless nature makes it difficult to spot. Obviously, it can make you seriously ill and kill! This is why it’s illegal to organise safety checks with non-registered Gas safe engineers.

If you need any more details on the best ways to tackle getting your premises an up-to-date residential gas certificate, or would like to talk about booking an inspection, contact Upkeep one to arrange your residential Gas safety inspection and testing to receive a gas safety certificate.

Electrical Safety Certificates

Electrical test and checks the ‘fixed’ installation, for instance, the wiring, changes and earth bonding. The goal of an electrical safety check is to prevent electrical dangers while confirming that everything is running properly and efficiently.

On the whole, Electrical tests can only be carried out by a qualified electrician who is certified with the current updates to the UK’s strict electrical policies. Fairly right, too– electricity can be incredibly harmful when the electrical systems aren’t really working as it should.

When purchasing and renting a property, Upkeepone recommends all its clients to obtain an Electrical Safety Certificate with your commercial and residential building.

Checks are also carried out on the electrical installation to inspect that it is safe and the electrician performing the inspection will provide a periodic inspection report (PIR) to record the findings of the review and testing. 

In addition to the essential part of the report, which will identify departures from the requirements of BS 7671 and offer a total review of the suitability of the installation for continued use, the record should be accompanied by schedules of inspection and test results provided as part of the reporting procedure. The schedule of tests will include information of the circuits within the building, and this information should be kept near the customer unit (fuse board).

To emphasise, Electrical hazards can be very significant and dangerous and can cost you a fortune if an issue exists and is not identified during a standard building inspection. Get other landlords certificates

EPC Certificates

EPC certificates are needed for domestic and commercial properties for selling and renting, both here in the UK and across Europe in similar systems. The purpose of the EPC certificate/record is to reduce the energy consumption of buildings by becoming more efficient and, therefore, minimising the pollution in the atmosphere, whilst minimising our dependence on other countries for our energy supply.

As an illustration, the EPC report ranks the property from the lowest level of a ‘G’ (1) to ‘A’ (100) and the greater figure would reflect a building that is near to ‘self-sufficient’ in terms of energy usage. The EPC needs to be provided within 28 days of marketing a property, and a lawyer will not conclude the transaction until the EPC remains in place.

Certainly, the EPC will not necessarily make you buy one property over another, but it exists to give ideas to individuals and to develop our habits of use. From 2016, all homes newly built are required to ‘A’ ranked, which leaves the rest of the housing stock far behind in regards to efficiency.

Your Energy Performance Certificate is valid for 10 years from the date of production. The report is compliant with regulations for both rental and sale properties. It is a compulsory requirement for all domestic and business buildings in London and throughout the UK to hold an EPC before they are marketed for sale or, when it comes to rental homes before any potential tenants are shown round. See EPC Legislation for more information.

PAT Testing Certificates

PAT testing marks electrical appliances that are portable, for example, PCs, kettles and fans.

PAT testing is necessary not only to comply with regulations but to ensure that your property is safe for tenants, workers and clients as well.

To ensure that you are complying with the Electricity at Work Regulations, you need to have all certifying equipment tested as part of your regular upkeep routine.

Likewise, Upkeepone believes that electrical safety is necessary and that portable appliance testing must be made available to everyone, and we realise that the two major factors in this cost and the worry of being charged for hidden costs such as call out charges and bills for extra labour. Uniquely, Upkeepone is positive that its simple pricing structure will set your mind at ease.

The keeping of relevant records is necessary. They allow evidence for the defence in the event of a prosecution; more practically, such records make it possible for the close monitoring of the equipment highlighting possible faults or adverse patterns. They are also important in forming an accurate assessment of the needed frequency of testing. For example, if over a mixture of constant test cycles few or no failures were reported then the duty holder might recognise minimising the frequency of tests, obviously the converse may also apply.

Inventories

Another crucial key point, Upkeepone can also provide its clients with professional inventory report services at competitive prices.

Hiring Upkeepone for your property inventory services ensures you receive the most comprehensive and professional service offered.

Its inventory clerks are highly certified experts with a lot of practical experience and the right set of talents.

Expert Inventory clerks supply an independently organised inventory which is drawn up in an objective manner, without bias to either Landlord or Tenant. It is respectively, the clear independence of the inventory report that provides peace of mind to the property owner.

The best inventory specialists are providing full building inventory, Check-ins, Mid-term inspections, Check-outs and Snagging reports to Letting Agents, Landlords and Tenants.

Inventory reports are a crucial part of rental contracts as they guard both parties when arranged efficiently and adequately, so they need to be prepared by specially qualifie
