Landlords and Gas Safety

Landlords letting property equipped with gas appliances need to ensure that they comply with the law relating to gas safety. As a landlord it is their responsibility to ensure that any pipe work, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition.

The landlord must now ensure that a gas safety check is carried out every year by a Gas Safe registered engineer. The new system of registration for engineers was introduced earlier this year. A registered engineer has to check gas appliances and confirm they are safe and issue the relevant certificates. The certificate must be given to the tenant within 28 days.
