Landlords and gas safety certificates
Landlords are required by law to get a gas safety certificate every 12 months under the Gas Safety Regulation of 1998. All landlords are required to conduct a safety check by a Gas Safe registered engineer annually, inspecting all gas appliances installed in the home including the boiler, flue and any associated pipe work.
If gas appliances installed in your property are not checked annually, your tenants could be at risk of fire, explosions or carbon monoxide poisoning. In addition to this, for new tenancies starting on or after October 2015, landlords forfeit the right to serve a section 21 notice on tenants if they fail to provide a gas safety certificate.
A gas safety certificate and check is therefore paramount to protecting the health and well-being of your tenants, whilst also protecting you against potential legal disputes and financial penalties.
Your gas safety certificate will, at a bare minimum, contain:
- A description and location of each gas appliance and flue installed in your property and checked during the inspection
- The name and Gas Safe registration number of the engineer who carried out the check, together with his or her signature
- The date on which the check was conducted
- The property address
- The landlord’s or letting agent’s address
- Details of any safety defects noted with any gas appliance tested together with any corrective measures taken
- Confirmation of the operational safety checks carried out on all gas appliances and the associated results
If you’re a landlord that’s working with a letting agent, you should seek clarification on who’s ultimately responsible for conducting the annual gas safety check and as a safeguard, ensure these details are drawn up in the form of a contract between both parties to ensure there’s absolute clarity and protection.
In addition to this, it’s worth ensuring that as a landlord you’re physically able to conduct an annual gas safety check as it is a legal requirement; at times the relationship between landlord and tenant may become problematic and tenants may refuse you access to the property, preventing you from conducting a check. It’s therefore sensible to draw up an agreement with the tenant permitting you access to the property to ensure safety and maintenance work is carried out, and ensuring this covers an annual gas safety check. Landlords are required in instances such as these to prove that they have taken all reasonable steps to ensure a gas safety check is conducted. If your tenant refuses engineers access to the property, be sure to keep a record of any action taken by you as you may need this at a later date.
