We Take Gas Safety Very SeriouslyPosted by: Lucy Dawe | Post date: 03.05.17
We recently wrote about the importance of fire safety in rental properties*. We’re shocked by the latest reported statistics published by Shelter that one in ten landlords and unregulated letting agents fail to conduct gas safety checks**.
Landlords must have a Gas Safety Certificate carried out prior to the commencement of the tenancy, updated annually in accordance with legal requirements under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1994 as amended 1996.
There’s no grey area here – failure to have a valid Gas Safety Certificate is breaking the law and hefty fines are imposable for non-compliance, not to mention the safety risk for tenants and other residents.
Here at Lawton & Dawe Properties, we’re proud to work with reputable credited Gas Safe engineers to make sure we adhere to the regulations.
