As registered Gas Safe engineers for Caterham, Oxted and surrounding Surrey towns, we consider it our duty to warn you of the dangers that gas can pose, and explain how to minimise the chances that anything goes awry within your home or place of work. But if something should go wrong, we urge you to call our team ASAP on 01883 715 665 or 07766 718642. Putting it off could have devastating consequences.
Perhaps the main piece of advice we’d give you is to be proactive. It is vital that your gas appliances, such as cookers, ovens, and boilers undergo the proper servicing, installation, maintenance and repairs. This is because incorrectly installed or faulty gas appliances drastically increase the risk of fire, explosions, carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning, and gas leaks.
MSR engineers are on hand every single day of the year to help you with this. We provide boiler servicing for countless domestic and commercial clients throughout Oxted, Caterham and their surrounds, which isn’t just good for preventing accidents, as it also can improve efficiency (saving you money over the year). And if you have a very old boiler that’s prone to malfunctions, our boiler installation specialists can upgrade yours to a modern unit from a reputable manufacturer.
So what about reactive services? For example, if you smell gas when your gas appliances are turned off, you should not hesitate to CALL US IMMEDIATELY.
As part of our local community in and around Oxted and Caterham, your safety is important to us. As such, if you need immediate assistance for any gas related issue, contact us at any time of day or night. We provide genuine 24 hour a day, 365 day a year coverage to companies and homeowners alike.
As a landlord you are no doubt very busy. But you also have a legal obligation to carry your gas safety duties in the proper manner.

It could also result in a heavy fine and/or imprisonment. To make sure that you have gas safety covered in your property, look no further than MSR!
Helping Landlords Fulfil Their Responsibilities…
You have three main responsibilities if letting a property equipped with gas appliances. These include the following:
Pipework, appliances and flues must be maintained in a safe condition. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with legal requirements and as per the manufacturer’s instructions. Don’t worry if instructions are unavailable. As Gas Safe registered engineers, we can advise you on how often to service your appliances. You are also legally required to ensure that annual gas safety checks are undertaken on all gas appliances and fittings, proving they are safe to use.
Records of your annual gas safety checks must be provided to your tenant within four weeks of the check being completed. Records must be given to new tenants before they move in. As a landlord, you must keep copies of all gas safety records for two years.
Should any of the gas infrastructure in one of your properties be damaged and require repair, you will need to see to it yourself by booking in a visit from Gas Safe engineers. Under the law, you are legally responsible for damage that occurs due to wear and tear – but not any purposeful damage committed by maliciously by the tenant. MSR is able to handle the diagnostics side of things then recommend the best course of action, providing advice at every turn should be unsure of the cause of the damage.
