What is a Gas Safety Check?

A landlord’s gas safety check involves an approved, qualified engineer visiting the property and completing an assessment on the safety of the appliances and system. The Landlord will receive a record showing whether the appliance is safe or not. A full assessment of your property’s appliances involves checking:

● The appliance is operating at the correct operating pressure.

● There is an adequate air supply to the appliance and it is burning gas correctly.

● That flues and chimneys are clear and enable the appliance to emit gases and fumes safely to the outside.

● That all safety devices on the appliance such as cut-out devices are working correctly.

Gas Safety Checks are a legal requirement for all rental properties and you must provide evidence of this to your tenants. This is in the form of a Gas Safety Certificate which is provided by the landlord at the end of the inspection. It is important to note that Landlords are only responsible for the appliances they supply, therefore, if a tenant buys their own gas appliance, the responsibility of a safety check is on the tenant.

Are Gas Safety Checks only for landlords?

No, it is recommended that any homeowner should have yearly gas safety checks to ensure all appliances are running as safely and efficiently as possible.

The Gas Safe Register provides a huge portfolio of advice for all landlords and those interested in having a gas safety check. You can find out more here:
