Gas Safety in Rented Accommodation

A Landlord’s Obligation

As a landlord, you are responsible for the safety of your tenants. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 specifically deal with the duties of landlords to ensure that gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants' use are safe.

In general, a landlord's gas safety duties apply to appliances and flues in "relevant premises" - residential properties occupied for residential purposes under either a licence, a tenancy agreement for a set term, or a lease. Essentially any lease of under seven years is covered.

Remember, safety checks are not only part of your legal requirements, they ensure that appliances are working correctly and guard against the dangers of carbon monoxide.

Carbon monoxide kills – Risks and how to prevent them

Carbon monoxide (CO) is a silent killer. It can infiltrate your home through the most apparently harmless devices, like your boiler or cooker. It is impossible to see or smell, yet it is easy to protect yourself, family and tenants from the risks.

This information is a guide to carbon monoxide and how to recognize if it’s present in your home. Too many people die each year in the UK from carbon monoxide poisoning, and many become chronically ill. By reading the information contained here, you can stop yourself and your loved ones becoming a carbon monoxide statistic.

A few simple steps, including an annual gas safety check with a CORGI registered installer, could prevent needless deaths or illness as a result of carbon monoxide poisoning.
