1st Gas Engineers Ltd Information for Landlords
As a Landlord you are legally responsible for the safety of your tenants
This means that by Law you must:
Ensure gas pipework is maintained and repaired, flues and appliances are in a safe condition
Ensure a gas safety check on all gas appliances and flue is carried out annually
Keep a record of each safety check (CP12 Certificate / Landlord's Gas Safety Record) for at least 2 years
Make sure all checks, repairs and installations are carried out by a Gas Safe Registered Engineer
Issue a copy of the gas safety check (CP12 Certificate / Landlord's Gas Safety record) to your tenants within 28 days of the check
You should not assume that the gas safety check meets the safety check requirements, or that a safety check, on its own, will be enough to provide effective maintenance.
Ask for advice from your engineer when necessary. Gas appliances owned by your tenant are not covered. Neither are flues/chimneys that are solely connected to an appliance owned by the tenant.
Failure to maintain gas appliances could result in loss of life.
You can face imprisonment or be fined up to £20,000 or both, for each offence. If the case reaches Crown Court the maximum penalty may be imprisonment or an unlimited fine, or both.
