The HSE states “Landlords have a duty of care to their tenants. This is a legal duty to repair and maintain gas pipework, flues and appliances in a safe condition, to ensure an annual gas safety check on each appliance and flue, and to keep a record of each safety check.”
This means a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate is required for all rental accommodations in the UK if there are gas appliances within the property; this can include but is not limited to gas hobs, gas fires and gas boilers.
What’s included in your Gas safety check?:
- All gas appliances will be checked
- Ventilation checked
- All safety devices checked
- Gas pressure check
- Flue test
- Landlord Gas safety certificate as a record
- A annual reminder with no commitment needed
