As a landlord one, of your key duties is to ensure gas appliances and fittings and flues in your properties are maintained in a safe condition.
It is a legal requirement for all Landlords, that all gas appliances are inspected annually by a qualified and competent for the appliance, Gas Safe Registered Engineer, who will then issue an inspection certificate, a copy of which must be given to the tenant (in certain cases there is an option to display the record).
If the property is let or managed by agents, they will require proof of the existance of a current gas safety certificate showing appliances to be in a safe and satisfactory working order before they will allow a tenant to occupy the property.
All records of safety inspections and checks should be kept by the landlord for at least two years.
