Landlord's Safety Inspections

Are you a landlord looking for someone to service your gas boiler, central heating or even to install a kitchen or bathroom? Your search is over, because Direct Gas Plumbing and Heating are the company to help you do just that. You are probably aware that there are certain legal requirements that need to be met, when it comes to gas safety in your properties. Here is a list of accommodations that a landlord is responsible for:

  • Residential properties that are leased-out by housing associations, local authorities, housing co-operatives, private sector landlords and hostels
  • Rooms that are available for let in private households, bed-sit accommodation, hotels and bed and breakfast premises
  • Holiday accommodations that are rented out, such as cottages, chalets, caravans, flats and narrow boats afloat on inland waters
  Gas Safety Regulations of 1998, state that landlords have a duty to make sure all gas appliances, flues and fittings on their properties are safe for their tenants.When letting a property that contains gas appliances a landlord has three responsibilities:

  • Gas Safety Checks – Once every 12 months a gas safety check should be carried out on every flue and gas appliance in your properties
  • Maintenance – Appliances, pipework and flues have to be maintained to keep them in a safe condition
  • Record – Landlords are responsible for their own records of gas safety checks. These have to be provided to your tenants and new tenants. These records have to be kept for at least two years
