Landlord Gas Safety Certificates

The Gas Safety Regulations 1998 outline the duties of landlords to ensure installed gas appliances, fittings and chimneys/flues provided for their tenants are safe to use.  As a landlord, your legal duties apply to accommodation occupied under a lease or licence. This includes (but not limited to):

  • Residential premises provided for rent.
  • Rented holiday accommodations such as holiday homes, cottages, flats, caravans etc.
  • Rented rooms, private households, bed-sit accommodation, B&B (bed and breakfast) accommodation.

As a landlord, you must ensure that you carry out the following:

  • Gas safety checks such as annual gas checks on the appliance and flue.
  • Maintenance work such as pipework, chimney/flues that need to be repaired etc.
  • Maintain a record of these gas safety checks.  This would be in the form of your own documentation and a Landlord Gas Safety Record.  You must keep this for two years and issue a copy to each existing tenant.
