Landlords Gas Safety Duties - Gas Safe for tenants.
Landlords are legally responsible for the safety of their tenants.
Landlords must make sure maintenance and annual safety checks on gas appliances are carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
If you’re a landlord, you are legally obliged to make sure:
1. Gas pipework, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition. 2. All gas appliances and flues provided for tenants use have an annual safety check.
Your tenants can report you to the HSE if you don’t provide one, so it’s important to remember!
If we are instructed to look after your gas appliances at your property, we shall ensure all regulations are met, your tenants are contacted and a mutual appointment made, Best of all, we shall ensure you are reminded every year FREE OF CHARGE!
A Gas Safety Record is provided to the tenant within 28 days of completing the check or to any new tenant before they move in.
You keep a copy of the Gas Safety Record until two further checks have taken place.
Maintenance and annual safety checks are carried out by a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer.
All gas equipment (including any appliance left by a previous tenant) is safe or otherwise removed before re-letting.
Before any gas work is carried out always check the engineer is qualified to carry out the work that needs doing e.g. natural gas, domestic boiler.
You can find our information on the Gas Safe Register website or by checking the back of the engineer’s Gas Safe ID card.
Encourage your tenants to also check the card when they arrive at the property.
