Warrington Landlords Gas Safety

As a Warrington landlord, you will be aware that you are responsible for your tenants’ safety. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 list the duties on landlords to make sure that gas appliances, fittings and chimneys/flues they provide for tenants are safe. Ensure you are compliant and safe, call us today for our Warrington Landlords Gas Safety check.

Warrington landlords gas safety rules apply to:

  • Residential premises provided for rent by local authorities, housing associations and private landlords.
  • Rooms that are let out: bed-sits, as well as rooms within private households, bed and breakfasts and hotels.
  • Rented holiday accommodation such as cottages, chalets, and caravans.
If you let a property with gas appliances, you have three main responsibilities:

Maintenance: All gas pipework, appliances and chimneys or flues must be maintained and safe. Gas appliances need to be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations. If you are in any doubt, then ask a Gas Safe registered engineer to service the appliance once every year.

Gas safety check: A gas safety check should be carried out on all gas appliances and all flues or chimneys every year. This makes sure that the gas appliances and fittings are safe for tenants’ use. There is a legal obligation on all landlords to have their gas appliances safety checked by a registered engineer every year and you also need to maintain the gas pipework and flues (but not the appliance itself) when the tenant provides an appliance.

Record Keeping: checks having being completed must be passed to your tenants within 28 days, and it should be given to all new residents at the start of their tenancy. If the rental period is regularly less than 28 days, then you can put a copy of the record on display within the dwelling in a prominent place. You have to keep copies of records of gas checks for a minimum of 24 months.
