As a landlord, you are responsible for the safety of your tenants. In relation to gas appliances you have three main responsibilities:
Pipework, appliances and flues must be maintained in a safe condition. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If these are not available it is recommended that they are serviced annually unless advised otherwise by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
Gas Safety Checks
A 12 monthly gas safety check must be carried out on every gas appliance/flue. A gas safety check will make sure gas fittings and appliances are safe to use.
A record of the annual gas safety check must be provided to your tenant within 28 days of the check being completed or to new tenants before they move in. Landlords must keep copies of the gas safety record for two years.
If we manage your property for you we will arrange for the gas safety check to be carried out by one of our Gas Safe Registered engineers. If we do not manage your property but you require a Gas Safe Registered engineer please call us and we will be happy to recommend you one.
