Gas Safety Certificates & Records

Newton Landlords Gas Safety

As a Newton landlord, you must be aware that you are responsible for the safety of your tenants. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 list the duties of landlords to ensure that gas appliances, fittings and chimneys/flues provided for tenants are safe. Don’t delay get your Newton landlords gas safety check booked today.

Newton landlords gas safety rules apply to:

Residential premises provided for rent, whether by local authorities, housing associations or private landlords.

Rooms that are let in bed-sit accommodation, private households, bed and breakfasts and hotels.

Rented holiday accommodation including cottages, chalets, and caravans.

If you let a property that has gas appliances within it, you have three main responsibilities:

Maintenance: All pipework, appliances and chimneys or flues have to be maintained safely. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If in doubt you should ask a Gas Safe registered engineer to service them every year.

Gas safety checks: An annual gas safety check should be done on every gas appliance and flue. This will make sure that the gas appliances and fittings are safe for use. There is a legal requirement for landlords to have all gas appliances safety checked by a registered engineer every year and you also need to maintain gas pipework and flues.

Keep Records: A record of the annual gas safety check should be given to your tenants within 28 days of its completion, or to all new tenants at the start of their tenancy. If the rental period is less than 28 days (for example a holiday home) then you may put a copy of the record on display in a prominent position within the dwelling. You must keep copies of the record for at least two years.
