     Gas Appliances

As of 31st October 1994, it became law for Gas Equipment in rented properties to be checked ON AN ANNUAL BASIS by a Gas Safe Registered installer (Gas Safe Replaced Corgi in 2009)

Landlords should maintain a record of when each appliance was checked, together with defects found (if any) and remedial action.

ALL LANDLORDS Must comply with regulation 35 by making arrangements to have appliances tested prior to letting. DETAILS MUST BE MADE AVAILABLE TO THE TENANT PRIOR TO THEM MOVING INTO THE PROPERTY ( October 1996 amendment) certificates should be made available to Trading Standards Officers and Home Lets on request.

LANDLORDS must advise Home Lets in writing whether you wish Home Lets to be responsible for arranging testing and keeping the appropriate records. The cost of testing and any necessary repairs to be deducted from relevant monthly rentals.

An instruction booklet for each appliance must be supplied to the tenant (in English) and noted on the inventory.

Please note that a British Gas Service Contract IS NOT a Gas Safety Certificate. A Gas Safety Certificate must be obtained from a Corgi Registered Installer.
