On behalf of Kevin O’Neill, can anyone help with this query?
The link below relates to a court case recently. I’m interested to know what Gas documents are provided at the start of a new tenancy by other organisations. At Halton Housing, we cap off all void properties and produce the cap off certificate as part of the sign up, but this is not sufficient if we want to evict using section 21 (housing act) to which our Tenancy team are trying to use.
Hi Michelle, we do the same as Chris, cap off on void and then carry out an uncap and instruct on the day the new tenant moves in which resets our service date. The tenant is then given a copy of that LGSR
Hi Michelle, we currently provide the gas cap certificate to the tenant at sign up and carry out an uncap and instruct on the day the tenant moves in, the LGSR is issued for that day and it resets our service date. I would be interested in more info on this as the article states ‘last gas safety certificate’ so clarification on the use of the void gas cap certificate would be welcome.
