Landlords are legally responsible for getting gas checks/certificates. On the account of renting a property, they’re obliged for annual gas maintenance – certificate included. A gas certificate records what appliance was inspected, their condition and further comments of recommendation for future reference. The certificate is vital for those renting, as it ensures families and homes are safe from harm or death. Landlords must arrange for Gas Safe registered engineers to perform gas checks with a certificate. Non Gas Safe engineers attempting gas work are immediately breaking the law.
