Obligations Of A Landlord

 

By law, under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.

  • It is your responsibility to get a Gas Safety Certificate every twelve months.
  • You must get this from a Gas Safe Registered engineer for all pipe work, gas appliances and flues installed at your property.
  • If you use an agent to manage your property, you need to make sure your contract clearly states in black and white whose responsibility it is to carry out maintenance on gas appliances.
  • You must also keep copies of all the paperwork. You’ll need to keep a record of the safety inspection for two years, and give a copy to all of your tenants within 28 days of the inspection.
  • If your tenants change, they’ll need a copy of the Gas Safety Certificate before they move in. If your contract says the agent is responsible, then the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 are passed on to them.
