Gas safety Certificates

Our Gas Safe registered engineers are qualified to carry out gas safety inspections and issue landlord gas safety certificates. If the appliance requires repairs or servicing, we will provide you with a quotation and the work can often be carried out during the same visit. Who is a landlord? In relation to domestic gas under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 (GS(IU)R 98), a landlord is anyone who rents out a property that they own under a lease that is shorter than 7 years or under a licence . Regardless of whether you are a landlord under GS(IU)R 98 you may be considered a landlord under other related legislation. Landlords‘ duties apply to a wide range of accommodation, occupied under a lease or licence , which includes, but not exclusively:  – residential premises provided for rent by local authorities, housing associations, private sector landlords, housing co-operatives, hostels  – rooms let in bed-sit accommodation, private households, bed and breakfast accommodation and hotels  – rented holiday accommodation such as chalets, cottages, flats, caravans and narrow boats on inland waterways. Further details are given in HSC’s Approved Code of Practice ‘Safety in the installation and use of gas systems and appliances’ which can be ordered through HSE books. What are my duties as a landlord in relation to gas safety? As a landlord, you are responsible for the safety of your tenants. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 deal with landlords’ duties to make sure gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants are safe. You are responsible for the maintenance and repair of flues,appliances and pipework which you own and have provided for your tenants use by a Gas Safe registered engineer . Although there is no prescribed timeframe for these duties, good practice would be the demonstration of regular, annual maintenance checks and subsequent repairs. You are also responsible for ensuring an annual gas safety check  is carried out  within 12 months of the installation of a new appliance or flue which you provide and annually thereafter  by a Gas Safe Registered engineer. You must keep a record of the safety check for 2 years and issue a copy to each existing tenant within 28 days of the check being completed and issue a copy to any new tenants before they move in. What are my duties as a letting/ management agent in relation to gas safety? Landlords who use agents to manage properties need to ensure that the management contract clearly specifies who is responsible for carrying out the maintenance and safety check duties, and keeping associated records. If the contract specifies that the agent has responsibility then the same duties under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 that apply to a landlord apply to you. In this situation an agent must arrange maintenance by a Gas Safe registered engineer for all pipework, appliances and flues, which the landlord owns and provides for the tenants...
