    • What are the requirements for landlords?

      As a landlord, it’s up to you to make sure your tenants stay safe in the property you’re letting. Your legal duties apply to a wide range of accommodation occupied under lease or licence. These include:

      • Residential premises provided for rent by local authorities, housing associations, private sector landlords, cooperatives, and hostels.
      • Rooms in bedsit accommodation, private households, bed and breakfast accommodation and hotels.
      • Rented holiday accommodation such as chalets, cottages, flats, Airbnb properties, caravans and narrowboats on inland waterways.

      The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 outline your duties as a landlord to make sure all gas appliances, fittings, chimneys and flues are safe and working efficiently. If you’re letting a property with gas appliances installed, you’ve got three main legal responsibilities:

      • Gas Safety Checks
      • Gas Safety Record
      • Maintenance

      You can find more details on requirements for landlords on our landlords page.

    • Record of safety checks

      Yes, you must provide your tenant with a record of safety checks completed within 28 days of the check being completed and you must keep an audible copy. The record will need to be kept until two further gas safety checks have been carried out and, for an appliance or flue that is removed from the premises, for a period of 2 years from the date of the last check of that appliance or flue.

      A common method of providing a record of safety checks is using a ‘landlord gas safety record’. These are sometimes referred to as a ‘Gas Safety Certificate’ or ‘CP12’ form. The record of a gas safety check must contain the following information:

      • a description of and the location of each gas appliance or flue checked;
       
      • the name, Gas Safe registration number and signature of the engineer carrying out the checks (an electronic signature is acceptable);
       
      • the date on which the appliance(s) or flue(s) were checked;
       
      • the address of the property at which the appliance(s) or flue(s) are installed;

      • the name and address of the landlord (or your agent where appropriate);

      • any gas safety defect identified and any remedial action taken by the registered engineer;
       
      • confirmation that the safety checks completed complied with the requirements of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 (GB and Isle of Man) and Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 2004 (Northern Ireland).

      Our landlords page contains further information regarding the responsibility of the landlord and Landlords Gas Safety Records.

    • Checking an engineer is qualified to carry out a gas safety check?

      All engineers registered with Gas Safe Register must have an ID card that shows the type of work they are registered to do. Gas Safe Register strongly advise you to check the engineer’s ID card before they begin work on your gas appliances.

      Details of the type of work that an engineer is registered to carry out can be found using our check an engineer facility, by checking the back of the engineer’s Gas Safe Register ID card or you can contact us at register@gassaferegister.co.uk; or you can call us on 0800 408 5500.

    • Cost of a landlord gas safety check

      The cost of your Landlord Gas Safety Check will depend on the Gas Safe registered engineer who carries out your annual gas safety check. We recommend getting at least three quotes from companies before arranging for the check to be carried out. You can find a registered business in your local area on our Check The Register page. 

    • No logo on the Gas Safety Record - is it still valid?

      A Landlord’s Gas Safety Record does not need to feature the Gas Safe Register logo. A certificate not displaying the logo can still be valid.

    • Carbon monoxide (CO) alarm

      Currently in England and Wales, legislation does not require a CO alarm to be fitted in rental properties containing gas appliances. However, we strongly recommend that audible CO alarms are installed in all domestic properties. 

      In Scotland and Northern Ireland, a CO detector is required when a new or replacement combustion appliance is installed.

      Before purchasing a CO alarm, always ensure it complies with British Standard EN 50291 and carries a British or European approval mark, such as a Kitemark. Check the manufacturer’s recommendations about how you should fit and test your alarm to ensure that the unit and the batteries are in good condition.

    • Additional information

      It’s always a good idea to ensure your tenants know where and how to turn the gas off and what to do in the event of a gas emergency.

      And remember, make sure it’s always a Gas Safe registered and qualified engineer that’s carrying out gas work or a Gas Safety Check. Landlords are legally required to make sure this is the case - and it’s the most important step to ensuring your tenants’ safety.

    • Stay gas safe in your rented accommodation

      Faulty gas appliances and gas pipework, poor gas fittings and blocked chimneys/flues can be life-threatening – so it’s important for your landlord to arrange annual gas safety checks to ensure appliances are safe and fit for use. The checks can include:

      • Ensuring that products of combustion (fumes) are being safely removed outside via the flue or chimney;
      • Ensuring an appliance is burning the gas properly, and that there is an adequate supply of fresh air in order for it to do so;
      • Ensuring all safety devices are working properly and shutting an appliance off should a fault occur.

       

      It’s in your best interests to let a Gas Safe registered engineer in if they visit your property to carry out a check – but don’t forget to ask to see their Gas Safe ID card first! It may also be a good idea to check with your landlord if you aren’t expecting an engineer to call.

      Advice on landlords duties are also contained in Health and Safety Executive’s guidance to landlords and letting agents found on the HSE website

       

       

    • Landlords requirements

      By law, landlords must make sure:

      • gas pipework, flues and gas appliances provided for tenants are maintained in a safe condition by a Gas Safe registered engineer (normally manufacturers recommend annual maintenance for their appliances) and all gas equipment (including any appliance left by a previous tenant) is safe or otherwise removed before re-letting;

      • that all appliances and flues that are provided by the landlord for their tenants use are safety checked by a Gas Safe registered engineer annually;

      • they provide a documented record of the safety checks (Landlords Gas Safety Record) to the tenant within 28 days of completing the check or to any new tenant before they move in;

      • they keep a copy of safety check documents for a specified period. Advice on landlords duties are contained in HSE's guidance to landlords and letting agents found on the HSE website.

    • Gas Safety Record

      When a registered engineer does a gas safety check in your home, they will record all of the checks they carry out on a form. This is the Gas Safety Record, and it should list all of the appliances and fittings they’ve checked.

      If you’re renting a property from a private landlord, the council, a housing association or any other landlord, they should provide you with a copy of the record within 28 days of the check being completed. They also need to give a copy of the latest record to new tenants upon the start of their tenancy. Find out more information on Gas Safety Records.

      If you’re not in possession of a valid record for your current property, you can ask your landlord to provide this. If they fail to do so, you can report them to the HSE. Failure to follow gas safety requirements is a criminal offence and the HSE has the power to issue a formal caution and may prosecute your landlord.

    • Student moving into a rented property

      Students are like any other tenants in that your landlord needs to ensure that any gas appliances in the property are safe for you to use. As a student, gas safety is unlikely to be top of your priorities list, but knowing your rights – and the warning signs of carbon monoxide poisoning – might just save your life.

      The six symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning could be mistaken for a hangover. To avoid this, it’s a good idea to invest in an audible carbon monoxide alarm – you can buy a battery operated one at any DIY store, usually for the price of a good night at the Students’ Union (£15-£20). Once it’s yours, you can take it with you wherever you go next. Make sure the alarm is marked to comply with the European safety standard BS EN 50291 and displays the British Standards' Kitemark.

    • Carbon monoxide (CO) alarm

      Currently in England and Wales, legislation does not require a CO alarm to be fitted in rental properties containing gas appliances. However, we strongly recommend that audible CO alarms are installed in all domestic properties. 

      In Scotland and Northern Ireland, a CO detector is required when a new or replacement combustion appliance is installed.

    • Change of trading title

      • Unlike your contact details, which can be updated at the press of a button online or over the phone, a change in trading title requires us to carry out additional checks to see if there are any changes to the ownership of the business, e.g. non-limited company to a limited company.
      • It doesn’t cost anything to change your trading title* and we aim to make the process as easy as possible. Simply email us at register@GasSafeRegister.co.uk quoting your Gas Safe registration details and we will send the forms out to you.
      • If you would like a hard copy posted out to you, or if you have any questions about completing the forms, please email us and we’ll be happy to help you through the process.

        Please note: Failure to return the completed form within 5 business days will result in the registration being archived, as per our Registration Policy.

      • Renewing soon?

        If you’re coming up to renew your registration we recommend that you change the trading title first – this means that your ID card(s) and registration certificate will be sent out with the new company name. You should allow plenty of time for us to process your change of trading title before your renewal date is due.

        *If you require a new ID card showing your updated details, this will be charged at £10 plus VAT.
