The Gas Safety Register

What if I am a Landlord?

As a landlord, you are legally responsible for the safety of your tenants.

So, to make sure any property you own is safe, all gas appliances must have a safety check carried out every 12 months by a Gas Safe registered engineer. You must give your tenant a record of that safety check within 28 days or to a new tenant before they move in. Remember you must keep a record of each safety check for two years.

All existing gas safety records will be valid until their expiry date (even if that is later than 1 April 2009). Any gas safety record given yo you after 1 April 2009 will only be valid if the engineer is registerd with Gas Safe Register.
