Are you a landlord? Did you know Landlords must be able to provide their tenants with an up-to-date Landlords gas safety certificate

All landlords have a legal duty under the Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 to maintain all appliances and flues that have been provided for their tenants and to have them checked once a year. You should therefore have a Landlords Gas Safety Certificate issued by a Gas Safe Engineer once every 12 months.

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 Landlords gas safety certificate upon completion of the check.
