Gas Safety Checks for Landlords 

 

If you are a landlord, you must ensure that any gas appliances (permanent or portable), and gas flues that you own and provide for use by your tenants, have regular gas safety checks.

Before the start of a new tenancy, you must provide a current gas safety check record. The record is valid from the date of the check. If the new tenancy begins within this twelve-month period, this record remains current and you can provide a copy for the new tenants.

If a tenant has their own gas appliance that you have not provided, you are responsible for parts of the associated installation and pipework, but not for the appliance.  

You can check further details here Regulation (36)(1) of the Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998.

 

Gas Safe Register

 

The Gas Safe Register maintains the register of businesses and operatives who are qualified to undertake both piped natural gas and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) work. According to the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, for a gas engineering business to legally undertake gas work within the scope of the regulations, they must be on the Gas Safe Register.

Gas Safe registered engineers carry an identity card which customers are encouraged to check before any engineer carries out gas work in their property. The front of the card has a photograph, a registration number and an expiry date and the reverse shows the different categories of work that the engineer is qualified to undertake, e.g. cookers, boilers or gas fires.
