Landlords Annual Gas Safety Certificate
GAS SAFETY REGULATIONS – Under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations, landlords are under a duty to maintain in a safe condition any relevant gas fitting and any flue which serves any relevant gas fitting. This includes items such as gas fires, gas cookers, central heating boilers, water heaters and swimming pool boilers.
Safety checks must be carried out every twelve months. These checks and any repairs or maintenance must be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
If there is more than one appliance in the property, each individual appliance must be checked and the results of the check must be recorded in a gas safety certificate.
Tenants are entitled to see a copy of the gas safety certificate and should ask to do so at the beginning of the tenancy.
The Gas Safety Certificate
A gas safety certificate should contain the following information:
the address of the property
the name and Gas Safe registration or licence number of the engineer
a list of all gas appliances in the property and confirmation that they are safe to use
a statement that the flues have been checked and are clear – a list of any remedial action needed
The gas safety regulations are currently enforced by the Health and Safety Executive.
