Every year, over a dozen people die and many more suffer ill health through the effects of Carbon Monoxide poisoning due to incorrectly installed gas equipment or ventilation. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1988 sets out the responsibilities of landlords with regard to installed gas equipment, specifically the installation, maintenance and use of gas appliances and fittings and flues in domestic (and certain commercial) premises.

These duties generally apply to appliances and flues provided for tenants' use in 'relevant premises' - those that are occupied for residential purposes under either a licence, a tenancy agreement for a set term, or a lease as defined in the Regulations. Essentially any lease under seven years is covered.

Landlords are required:

  • To ensure gas fittings and flues are maintained in a safe condition. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If these are not available it is recommended that they are serviced annually unless advised otherwise by a Gas Safe registered engineer;

  • To ensure an annual safety check is carried out on each gas appliance/flue. Before any new lease starts, you must make sure that these checks have been carried out within one year before the start of the lease date, unless the appliances in the property have been installed for less than 12 months, in which case they should be checked within 12 months of their installation date;

  • To have all installation, maintenance and safety checks carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer

  • To keep a record of each safety check for at least two years;

  • To issue a copy of the latest safety check record to existing tenants within 28 days of the check being completed, or to any new tenant before they move in (in certain cases there is an option to display the record)

  • Greensides Heating Ltd are well experienced in performing the annual Landlord's Gas Safety Checks and can advise on what is entailed as well as costs for multiple properties.
