“How long does a Gas Safety Check take?”
Usually 30 minutes to an hour is enough to complete the report depending on the number of appliances. You must make sure there is credit on token gas or electricity meters.
“What do you need access to?”
Our engineer will need clear access to the gas meter and any gas appliances you have – boilers, hobs, cookers and fires.
“What is involved?”
Our engineers will carry out various checks to make sure all gas appliances are safe to use. These checks include:
- checking flues and chimneys to make sure fumes are being safely removed to outside.
- checking there is an adequate supply of fresh air so the gas burns properly.
- checking an appliance is burning the gas properly.
- checking all safety devices are working properly and shutting the appliance off if a fault occurs.
- checking for gas leaks
What if I don’t comply?
If a landlord does not have a valid gas safety certificate, or does not do works required, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has the power to prosecute. Failure to follow gas safety requirements is a criminal offence and can be punished by fines or imprisonment.
A Landlord’s responsibilities
If you let a property with gas appliances you have three main responsibilities:
Annual Gas Safety Checks: an annual gas safety check must be carried out on every gas appliance/flue to confirm gas fittings and appliances are safe to use.
Record: a record of the annual gas safety check must be provided to your tenant within 28 days of the check being completed or to new tenants before they move in. Landlords must keep copies of the gas safety record for two years.
Maintenance: pipework, appliances and flues must be maintained in a safe condition. We recommended that appliances are serviced annually. Any installation or landlord safety checks must be carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer.
Inform your tenants where to turn off the gas and what to do in the event of a gas emergency.
