Liberty and Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea announce new partnership to increase gas safety for residents
National property services business Liberty is working with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to ensure the highest standards of gas safety in tenants’ homes.
Launched this month, the new partnership will see Liberty undertake maintenance and repairs on heating in thousands of tenant’s homes.

Liberty, which provides high-quality compliance services to more than 200,000 homes nationwide, routinely achieve 100% legal compliance on the LGSR for clients.
The company’s quality of work and customer service has rewarded it with an industry leading Trustpilot score of 4.2, and Net Promoter Scores consistently over +60.
