Gas Safety Certificates For Landlords & Estate Agents

As a landlord, you are responsible for the safety of your tenants. The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 highlight the duties of a landlord to ensure that gas appliances, fittings and flues in rented properties are working to a safe standard.

If you let a property equipped with gas appliances there are three main areas of responsibility, these are, maintenance, safety checks and record keeping.
