Landlord gas safety certificates and Gas safety

Do you live in a rented property?

 

Did you know that your landlord has legal responsibilities when it comes to gas safety?

If you rent a property, ask your landlord for a copy of the current Gas Safety record. This record shows that gas appliances have had an annual gas safety check by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

Landlords must also maintain gas appliances, so check the date when yours were last serviced as well.

 

Are you a landlord?

 

Landlords must be able to provide their tenants with an up-to-date Gas Safety record.

By law, landlords must have all gas appliances serviced regularly, normally once a year by a Gas Safe registered engineer. The Gas Safe registered engineer will provide a Gas Safety record upon completion of the check.

 

The Smoke and Carbon Monoxide Alarm (England) Regulations 2015  the main requirements and provides that a landlord must ensure that 

 

  • a smoke alarm is equipped on each storey of the premises on which there is a room used wholly or partly as living accommodation and
  • a carbon monoxide alarm is equipped in any room of the premises which is used wholly or partly as living accommodation and contains a solid fuel burning combustion appliance

 

 

What information does the Landlords Gas Safety record contain?

 

  • description and location of each appliance and/or flue checked
  • name, registration number and signature of the engineer who carried out the check
  • date on which the appliance and/or flue was checked
  • the address of the property at which the appliance and/or flue is installed
  • the name and address of the landlord (or his agent where appropriate) 
  • any defect identified and any action required or taken to fix it
  • confirmation of the results of operational safety checks carried out on the appliances.
