Landlords and Lettings Agencies

Emergency repairs, Installations, service contracts and legal requirements

At ZAP services we understand that your rental property is your business and with almost a decade of experience in this field, working with some of the leading letting agents and multiple landlords in the area, we can help make your job easier and your relationship with your tenants smoother as well as carrying out boiler installations, servicing and emergency repairs (see our HEATING, PLUMBING and BATHROOMS section).

Your legal obligations

As a landlord you have certain legal responsibilities regarding the gas and electrical appliances provided in your rental property. Lettings agencies are required to make sure that the landlords of properties that they market comply with these requirements.
New to market properties must also have an Energy Performance certificate in place so that prospective tenants are aware of the energy profile of the property before they commit to a rental agreement.

ZAP services can make sure that you comply with these as we are Gas Safe registered engineers, Licensed Domestic Energy Assessors and trained Portable Appliance testers.

Gas Safety
Zap services carry out hundreds of Gas Safety inspections a year. We are trusted by Agents and Landlords to carry out the report properly. A lot depends on the report so it makes sense to get an expert in to do the job.
ZAP services recommend that a boiler service is carried out at the same time as your Gas Safety Check to ensure that you are complying with the regulations. See our pricing page for details of our Gas Safety and service packages.
If an appliance should be found not to be safe we will make it safe, isolate it from the gas supply and contact the property owner or their agent before carrying out any remedial work. A warning notice will be issued. Once we have been instructed to carry out the remedial work we will retest and issue a new report with no extra charge

Please follow this link to the HSE website for full details and FAQs: http://www.hse.gov.uk/gas/landlords/index.htm

PAT testing
Anyone who lets residential accommodation as a business activity is required by law to ensure the equipment they supply as part of the tenancy is safe.
Fortunately Zap services are competent PAT testers and can test your appliances for you. Why not book this in at the same time as your Gas Inspection Safety?

Boiler and Heating installations and repairs


Boilers break down and there is nothing worse than an angry cold tenants. Zap Services can quickly and efficiently repair or in the worst case replace the boiler and get your tenant happy again. We are registered installers for many of the leading brands and for replacement boilers we can offer a range of boilers to suit your budget.



Legionella Inspections


Legionella risk assesments are now part of the responsibilities of landlords of domestic properties. We are trained legionella inspectors and can provide a comprehensive report on the risks in your property. Unlike most other Legionella Risk assessment firms we can also cost and carry out any remedial works required.
