Landlord Gas Safety Responsibilities
If you own a property that is let to tenants, the following is your responsibility when it comes to gas safety:
-Maintenance-gas appliances, pipework and chimneys/flues need to be maintained in proper condition to ensure the safety of your tenants. Gas appliances should be serviced on an annual basis by a certified gas safe engineer. Gas appliances that are owned by the tenant and not the landlord, are not the landlord’s responsibility, however, it is the landlord’s responsibility to ensure that the connecting pipework and flue are in proper working order.
-Gas safety checks-all gas appliance, piping and flues must be inspected for safety on a yearly basis. Landlords can arrange to have gas safety checks done between ten and twelve calendar months from the previous check. Again, for appliances that are owned by the tenant and connected to flues that are solely used by the tenant’s own appliances, the landlord will not be responsible for their safety.
-Gas safety certificate-a record of the annual gas safety check in the form of a landlord gas safety certificate must be issued.
