5 Essential Gas Safety Checks  Gas Safety Week 13th – 17th September

September 13, 2021 Kate Porter

Gas safety is essential all year round, but Gas Safety Week is an ideal opportunity to reiterate to landlords and prospective landlords their ongoing responsibilities

Essential gas safety checks include:

  • gas pipework, appliances and flues provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition.
  • all gas appliances and flues provided for tenants’ use have an annual safety check. Tenants can report landlords to the HSE for not providing one.
  • a Gas Safety Record is provided to the tenant within 28 days of completing the check or to any new tenant before they move in.
  • keep a copy of the Gas Safety Record until two further checks have taken place.
  • maintenance and annual safety checks are carried out by a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer.
