Landlords

 

As a landlord, you are responsible for the safety of your tenants. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 deal with landlords’ duties to make sure gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants are safe.

 

You are responsible for the maintenance and repair of flues,appliances and pipework which you own (and have provided for your tenants use) by a Gas Safe registered engineer, good practice would be the demonstration of regular, annual maintenance checks and subsequent repairs.

 

You are also responsible for ensuring an annual gas safety check is carried out within 12 months of the installation of a new appliance or flue which you provide and annually thereafter by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. You must keep a record of the safety check for 2 years and issue a copy to each existing tenant within 28 days of the check being completed and issue a copy to any new tenants before they move in.

 

When I visit, all gas appliances are tested for safety and the property is then issued with a gas safe certificate which last for a year.

 

Call 07879 285 114 or email Gas Fixer Tamworth so I  can arrange, either with the landlord or tenant, a suitable time for the inspection. Prices for certificates will vary on the amount of properties involved.
