Information For Landlords

Landlord Heating and Plumbing Services Hertfordshire

Do you know your gas safety responsibilities and duty of care to protect your tenants?

As a landlord you should be aware that you are solely responsible for the safety of your tenants. Your legal duties apply to a wide range of accommodation occupied under a lease or licence, including (but not limited to):

  • Residential premises provided for rent by local authorities, housing associations, private sector landlords, co-operatives, hostels
  • Rooms, let in bed-sit accommodation, private households, bed and breakfast accommodation and hotels

The Gas Safety (Installation & Use) Regulations 1998 outline the duties of landlords to ensure gas appliances, fittings & chimneys/flues provided for tenants are safe.

Your responsibilities:

If you let a property equipped with gas appliances, you have three main responsibilities:

  • Maintenance: pipework, appliances and chimney/flues need to be maintained safely. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with the frequency given in the manufacturer’s instructions. If these are not available, you should ask a Gas Safe registered engineer to service them annually
  • Gas safety checks: An annual gas safety check should be carried out on each gas appliance/flue. This will ensure gas appliances and fittings are safe to use. There is a legal requirement on you to have all gas appliances safety checked by a registered engineer annually and you also need to maintain gas pipework and flues in a safe condition. This is UK law
