Helping support your business with a hands-on approach
CORGI Technical Services provide support services for Landlords to assess the effectiveness of your internal processes to ensure you are complying with legislation. It is essential all Landlords have correct and efficient processes in place and CORGI Technical Services are here to provide support in achieving the requirements of legislation.
Robust policies and procedures are key to ensuring tenants are kept safe and the correct systems are being employed to fulfil all responsibilities under the regulations.
Having a poorly performing gas management regime can also impact on inspection ratings so can cost money. The majority of Landlords have good access rates in the high 90% but other areas of work need to be considered to provide an all round excellent service.
Contractor records, mutual exchanges, voids, tenants own appliances are some of the areas that have been shown in the past to have left Landlords open to risk of prosecution.
The Audit Commission have introduced short notice inspections for Housing Associations and this will extend to ALMOs (Arms Length Management Organisations) and Local Authorities. This means your organisation will need to be prepared at all times, a CORGI Management Audit can help you assess and improve your performance so that you are better positioned for any inspection visit.
Where gas is concerned, Landlords have defined requirements under the Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 and also under Health & Safety legislation. Penalties for not discharging those responsibilities can be heavy fines or in extreme cases custodial sentences.
