Landlord Gas Safety Certificates
Thursday 15th of September 2016
Landlord Gas Safety Certificates in Hastings, Kent and East Sussex.
When it comes to the safety of their tenants, landlords have a legal requirement and a duty of care to ensure all gas appliances are maintained and in a safe condition.
The Gas Safety regulations of 1998 (http://www.legislation.gov.uk/uksi/1998/2451/regulation/36/made) clearly states that every Landlord is required to carry out annual Gas Safety checks and record the checks and findings for inpsection if required.
Rental accommodation can include residential properties (houses, flats etc), rooms within a property (bedsit or house share, bed and breakfast and hotels) and also holiday accommodation (chalets, cottages, caravans, flats and even narrow boats on inland waterways) for long or short term let.
All of these checks should be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
