Important safety Requirements

The following requirements are the responsibility of the Landlord. Therefore where we are managing, we need to ensure compliance,

Health and Safety – Gas:

Annual safety check – under the gas safety(installation and use) Regulations 1998 all gas appliances and flues in rented accommodation must be checked for safety within 12 months of being installed ,and therefore at least every 12 months by a competent engineer(i.e. a CORGI registered gas installer).

Maintenance – There is a duty to ensure that all gas appliances ,flues and all associated pipe work is maintained in a safe condition at all times. Records – Full records must be kept for at least 2 years of the inspection of each appliance and 'flue, of any defects found and of any remedial action taken.

Copies to Tenants – a copy of the safety certificate issued by the engineer must be given to each new tenant before their tenancy commences, or to each existing tenant within 28 days of the check being carried out.

Health and Safety – Electrical:

Under the electrical equipment regulations 1994, and certain other regulations, electrical appliances and equipment provided in tenanted premises must be safe. It is therefore necessary to make a visual check to ensure that all electrical items are safe and remove any damaged items.

Consumer Protection – Fire:

Smoke Alarms:

All properties built since June 1992 must have been fitted with mains powered smoke detector alarms from new. Although there is no legislation requiring smoke alarms to be fitted in our ordinary tenanted properties ,it is considered that a common law ‘duty of care ‘ means that landlords could be liable should a fire cause injury or damage in tenanted property.

We hope that general points covered in this guide will be of some assistance to you.
