Gas Safety Checks completed ahead of time

Liberty man and van

Liberty Gas (our heating repairs and servicing contractor) have completed all of STAR Housing’s statutory gas safety checks for financial year 2016/2017.

On the 28th February 2017 STAR housing became Liberty Gas’s first client to achieve this.

STAR Housing and Liberty Gas would like to thank all tenants who have allowed us first time access to complete the annual heating service.

We also wish to thank our local Housing Teams who worked alongside Liberty Gas to help gain entry into properties.

Did you know that 1 in 3 Gas Servicing result in no access? This resulted in over 8000 no access visits since April 2016.

As the managing company for your landlord (Shropshire Council) we have a legal duty to visit your property once every 10 months to complete a heating service and safety check on your heating system. The safety check ensures that all occupants of your property and surrounding properties remain safe.

Remember – Carbon monoxide kills. Please test your carbon monoxide alarms regularly.
