Gas Safety Certificates For Landlords in Essex

As a Landlord, you have a duty of care towards your tenants to ensure that all gas appliances, pipework and flues are maintained and serviced to the necessary standards. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 lay down the guidelines for Landlords to ensure the safety of their properties. There are three main areas to note:

  •  Maintainence and Servicing of Flues, Pipework and Appliances - You must make sure that all the appliances such as gas fires and ovens and boilers are all maintained as per the manufacturers instructions, or serviced every year by a gas safe registered engineer.

  • Annual Gas Safety Check - All appliances and flues MUST undergo a Gas Safety Check every year. This must be done by a Gas Safe Registered engineer, who will make sure everything is safe and compliant with regulations.
  • Gas Safety Record - You must give your tenants a copy of the Gas Safety Record within 28 days of the check being done, or when your new tenants move in. You must keep your copy of the Record for at least 2 years. Your Gas Safe engineer will issue you with the certificate if your property is safe and within regulations.

Other important things to note are that you should make your tenant aware that they must allow the gas safe engineer access to the property to carry out the annual check. Usually 24 hours notice is required. Make sure your tenant checks the engineers ID card first. If the tenant has their own gas appliance, you are responsible for the maintainence of the pipework to the appliance but not the appliance itself.
