Landlords

 

Remember to always check the engineer’s Gas Safe Register ID card to make sure they are qualified to carry out the gas work you need them to do.

 

Landlords are legally responsible for the safety of their tenants. Landlords should make sure maintenance and annual safety checks on gas appliances are carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.  By law, landlords must make sure: 

  • pipe-work, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition

  • that all appliances and flues that they provide for tenants use have an annual safety check

  • that maintenance and annual safety checks are carried out by an engineer registered with Gas Safe Register

  • all gas equipment (including any appliance left by a previous tenant) is safe or otherwise removed before re-letting

  • a gas safety record is provided to the tenant within 28 days of completing the check or to any new tenant before they move in

  • they keep a copy of the gas safety record for two years

Tenants

  

Landlords have responsibilities for gas safety.  All gas appliances provided by the landlord must be correctly maintained and a gas safety check must be carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

 

If you are a tenant always:

  • Ask for a copy of the landlord’s current gas safety record before you move in and every 12 months thereafter.

  • Check the ID card of any gas engineer that comes to do work in your home. The engineer must be Gas Safe registered.

  • Check the engineer is qualified for the work you need doing - you can find this information on the back of the ID card.

  • Cooperate with your landlord and let a registered engineer in when a gas safety check or servicing needs to be done.

  • Arrange for any gas appliances you own to be regularly serviced and safety checked every year.

 

Remember, if you think a gas appliance is faulty turn it off and let your landlord know immediately. Badly fitted and poorly serviced appliances can cause gas leaks, fires, explosions and carbon monoxide poisoning. If you feel unwell seek medical help immediately.
