 A landlord’s gas safety certificate is a legal requirement

It is illegal for a landlord to rent out their property without a gas safety certificate.
Nobody said being a landlord would be easy! Dealing with tenants’ repairs, keeping their gas appliances and electrical systems safe, and helping them deal with other home emergencies can take a huge proportion of your rental income.
Wouldn’t it be nice to let properties without having to deal with all this hassle and expense?
