I have used Moore and Saunders for both electrical and plumbing issues and have been impressed by the standard of their work. They have been absolutely brilliant and I have no hesitation of continuing to use them, nor of recommending them to others.

Very helpful team and get the jobs done efficiently. Started with a complete rewire and they have been very patient with us refurbishing the house in our own time, to come back to do 2nd fixes (sockets / switches / light fittings etc) as and when we get to it. Highly recommended.

Information For Landlords

Legal and Moral Obligations for Landlords Regarding Gas Safety and Boiler Maintenance

As a landlord, ensuring the safety and comfort of your tenants is paramount. Regular boiler service & gas safety checks are critical components of maintaining a safe rental property. These not only ensure compliance with legal requirements but also protect your tenants from potential hazards and ensure the efficient operation of heating systems. Below, we provide detailed information on your responsibilities and best practices regarding landlord gas safety checks and boiler servicing.

Legal Requirements

In the UK, landlords have specific legal obligations under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. These regulations ensure that gas appliances, fittings, and flues provided for tenants’ use are safe.

  1. Annual Gas Safety Check: Landlords are required to ensure that a qualified Gas Safe registered engineer conducts an annual gas safety check on each gas appliance and flue. This check must be carried out every 12 months without fail. More information can be found on the Gas Safe Register website.
  2. Gas Safety Record: After each annual check, landlords must provide their tenants with a copy of the Gas Safety Record (previously known as the Gas Safety Certificate) within 28 days of the inspection. New tenants must receive a copy of this record before they move into the property. The Gas Safety Record must be retained for at least two years. You can read more about this on the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) website.
  3. Boiler Service: Regular servicing of the boiler is crucial for ensuring its efficient and safe operation. It is recommended to service the boiler annually, and this service can often be combined with the annual gas safety check. Proper maintenance can prevent breakdowns and prolong the life of the boiler.
  4. Qualified Professionals: All gas-related work, including boiler servicing, must be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer. This ensures that the engineer has the necessary qualifications and experience to perform the work safely and competently. You can verify the registration of an engineer on the Gas Safe Register.

Moral Obligations

Beyond legal requirements, landlords have a moral duty to ensure their properties are safe and habitable. Prioritising gas safety and regular boiler servicing is an essential aspect of this duty.

  1. Protecting Tenants’ Health: Faulty gas appliances and boilers can cause serious health issues, including carbon monoxide poisoning, which can be fatal. Ensuring regular checks and maintenance helps protect your tenants’ health and well-being.
  2. Building Trust: Demonstrating a commitment to safety helps build trust and fosters a positive relationship between landlords and tenants. This can lead to longer tenancies and a more stable rental income.
  3. Preventing Damage: Regular maintenance and safety checks can prevent gas leaks, boiler breakdowns, and other hazards, which can cause significant damage to the property and endanger lives.
  4. Legal and Financial Repercussions: Non-compliance with gas safety and boiler servicing regulations can result in severe penalties, including hefty fines and imprisonment. Ensuring compliance not only protects your tenants but also safeguards you from legal and financial repercussions.

Best Practices for Landlords

To ensure you meet your legal and moral obligations regarding gas safety and boiler maintenance, consider the following best practices:

  1. Schedule Annual Checks: Set reminders for annual gas safety checks and boiler servicing well in advance. This ensures you never miss the deadline and can book a qualified engineer in a timely manner.
  2. Maintain Records: Keep thorough records of all gas safety checks, boiler services, and maintenance work. This documentation is crucial for compliance and can be useful in case of disputes or inspections.
  3. Educate Tenants: Inform your tenants about the importance of gas safety and regular boiler servicing. Provide them with information on how to recognise signs of gas leaks, boiler issues, or carbon monoxide poisoning and what steps to take in an emergency.
  4. Install Carbon Monoxide Detectors: Equip your properties with carbon monoxide detectors, particularly in rooms with gas appliances and near boilers. Regularly check and replace the batteries to ensure they are functioning correctly.
  5. Regular Maintenance: Beyond the annual safety check and boiler service, schedule regular maintenance for all gas appliances and the boiler according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. This helps keep them in optimal working condition.
