You must get a Gas Safe registered engineer to carry out a gas safety inspection each year on any property that you let. It’s a legal requirement under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 that you should get a Gas Safety Certificate to give to your tenants.
A gas safety inspection involves a Gas Safe registered engineer coming to your property and inspecting the gas appliances for gas tightness, as well as the flue flow and the burner pressure. When the engineer has finished the inspection and they are happy that your appliances are safe, they will give you a Gas Safety Certificate. You need to keep a record of this certificate for 2 years and give a copy to your tenants within 28 days of the inspection.
You’re legally required to carry out a gas safety inspection each year, but it is also a good idea to get another one carried out when the tenants in your premises change. That real way you know that all your appliances are safe before they move in. You should also consider getting a carbon monoxide alarm installed in the property so tenants can be alerted to a potential CO leak, which can cause poisoning and even lead to loss of life.
Even if you don’t own a rental property, it’s best to have a gas safety inspection each year at your home to keep your household safe. With this and an annual boiler service, you can make sure that your gas appliances are efficient and safe.
