Landlord Certificate Requirements
A landlord has legal requirements towards ensuring gas safety at home. Every 12 months, they must have gas checks on their flues, pipes and appliances, together with a gas certificate. One certificate (copy) must be given to tenant(s), 28 days after gas work completion. These requirements provide security against gas related incidents.
Landlord Certificate requirements were enforced by the law when HSA reported that 30 people die from gas poisoning yearly. Following these requirements may seem a drag, but they benefit your landlord, home and family. These requirements are crucial as they save lives as well as repair costs. A safety certificate is also important regarding landlord requirements. It provides reassurance that your gas is safe. Any records of unsafe gas will be recorded, but will be fixed immediately.
Carbon monoxide is one of the U.K.’s leading in-home deaths. People die from carbon monoxide’s colourless, tasteless, odourless nature – commonly found in badly maintained gas appliances, flues, also piping. Gas Safe registered engineers are permitted for gas assessment and certificate, not your landlord. Your landlord must follow safety requirements, so that gas accidents decrease/diminish. Should tenants die from gas poisoning by faulty gas appliances/no certificate, your landlord will face legal consequences.
