A landlord’s gas safety responsibilities – Gas Safety Week

Reading Time: 2 Mins Read

Gas safety is a general preoccupation for landlords, but sometimes there’s no harm in being reminded of the importance of making sure the gas appliances in your rental properties are safe to use.

Gas Safety Week takes place from 17th to 23rd September 2018. Supported by ARLA Propertymark, the week aims to raise awareness of gas safety.

Gas Safety in Rental PropertiesThe occasion also helps to remind people of the dangers of ill-fitting gas appliances and appliances which have not been recently or regularly tested.

Landlords are required to have the gas appliances in their rental properties tested in line with current rules and regulations, and these tests should always be carried out by a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer.

Letting agents and landlords alike are being encouraged to show support for Gas Safety Week, while being reminded of the dangers of failing to maintain gas safety appliances in rental properties.

Chief Executive for Gas Safe Register, Jonathan Samuel, said: “It’s great to see so many people supporting Gas Safety Week to help spread important gas safety advice.”

“Although gas safety is important 365 days a year, by focusing our communications in one week we are more likely to reach a wider audience and have a greater impact.”
