Gas Inspection

As from 1 April 2009, Gas Safe Register replaced Corgi as the organisation responsible for gas safety in Great Britain.

As your landlord, we are responsible for the safety of our tenants. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 specifically deal with the duties of landlords to ensure that gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants’ use are safe.

We will:

Ensure installation pipe work, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition
Ensure an annual safety check is carried out on each appliance and/or flue that you provide for tenants use
Ensure maintenance and annual safety checks are carried out by a Gas Safe registered installer
Keep a record of each safety check for 2 years
Issue a copy of the safety check to each existing tenant within 28 days of check being completed, and to any new tenant before they move in
Ensure all gas equipment (including any appliance left by a previous tenant) is safe or otherwise removed before re-letting
Ensure that only Gas Safe registered installers are used to carry out work on gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants use
If one of our contractors is used, Karin will ensure that the management contractor clearly says who will arrange for maintenance and safety checks and keep records
As your landlord we still have overall responsibility for making sure those duties are met

Tenants

You should allow us or the contractor access to the property to carry out maintenance or safety checks on appliances and/or flues that we provide for your use.

Gas appliances and/or flues you own should be regularly maintained and a safety check carried out at least once every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered installer.

If there is any doubt about the safety of gas equipment it should be turned off and not touched until checked by a Gas Safe registered installer.
