Landlord’s Gas Safety Certificates
If you are a landlord letting a property equipped with gas appliances you must understand and comply with the law relating to gas safety.
If you let a property, you must make sure that pipe work, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition. You must have a gas safety check every year. A Gas Safe registered engineer must carry out the safety check in properties in Great Britain and the Isle of Man. You must give your tenants a copy of the gas safety certificate within 28 days of it being carried out or before they move in.
You are also obliged to show your tenants how they can turn off the gas supply in the event of a gas leak.
As a landlord, you are legally responsible for ensuring that a Gas Safe registered engineer checks the gas appliances in your rental properties every 12 months and gives you and the tenant copies of the gas safety certificates.
You must keep a record of each safety check for at least two years.
We would be happy to arrange your Gas Safety Certificate through our recommended Gas Safe engineer. Please contact us for a quotation for this or for a report on the condition of your plumbing & heating system.
