The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) state:
“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“.
Whats more, this safety check needs to be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
So, a Landlord Gas Safety Certificate needs to be acquired for all rental accommodation here in the UK if there are gas appliances present in the property. We can complete this annual gas safety check to give you peace of mind, and then you will need to provide your tenants with a copy of the gas safety certificate within 28 days.
