The Gas Safety, Installation and Use Regulations 1998 deal with landlordsí duties to make sure gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants, who are staying in flats or houses that you are letting, are safe.
You must always use a Gas Safe registered engineer to carry out any repairs or installations as well as for the annual Gas Safety check. A copy of the record of the annual safety check or Gas Safety Certificate(CP12),must be issued to each existing tenant within 28 days of the check being completed and to any new tenants before they move in. Not having a Gas Safety Certificate is not only illegal but may invalidate your insurance.
If you need any help organising a Gas Safety Certificate, then our partners at Landlord Assist will be delighted to supply you with a quotation, free of charge. Just fill in the form below
