Gas safety

Landlords have gas safety responsibilities: the gas supply and appliances in a private rented home must be in a safe condition.

Gas boilers, fires and appliances must be fitted or repaired by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

A gas safety check must be carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer. This includes gas pipework, gas cookers, gas boilers, gas fires and gas water heaters. The landlord isn't responsible for the safety of gas appliances owned by tenants.
