Landlord and gas safety
As a Gas Safe Registered plumbing and heating company we offer the necessary gas safety checks and servicing required by law for landlords who own both privately rented properties and holiday cottages. We also provide landlord certificates covering gas boilers and appliances.
What are my gas safety responsibilities as a landlord?
If you let a property equipped with 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.
