Landlord Safety Certificates in York

All landlords are legally required to have all gas appliances in their properties inspected every 12 months, and hold a gas safety certificate (CP12)

There isn’t any actual reference in UK law, or made by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), that specifically refers to Gas Safety Certificate’s for landlords. The regulations state that a record needs to be kept of an annual gas safety check. However, as a landlord, YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for the safety of your tenants in property that you own.

gas safety checks by our approved engineers

Landlords are responsible for the maintenance and repair of flues, appliances and pipework which they own and have provided for use by renters. All servicing Will have to be completed by a Gas Safe registered engineer. Hurrell Plumbing & Heating Ltd offer gas safety certificates in York at competitive pricing all year round.

Landlords are responsible for ensuring that an annual gas safety check is carried out within 12 months of the installation of a new appliance or flue, which you provide and each year thereafter by a Gas Safe registered engineer.

A copy of the safety check should be kept for two years, and a copy issued to the existing tenant within 28 days of the check being finished and a copy issued to any new tenants before they move in.


What if I use a letting/management agency?


What if I use a letting/management agency?

Many landlords leave the management of their properties up to letting companies, who manage the property and manage things like collecting the rent from the tenants and addressing any issues that arise with the property, on behalf of the landlord.

It is therefore imperative that you, as the landlord, always make sure that any agreement written between yourself and the letting agency, clearly stipulates who is responsible for undertaking the maintenance and safety check duties, and keeping associated records.

If the contract stipulates that the letting agent has responsibility, then the same duties under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 that apply to the landlord, apply to the letting agent pertaining to gas safety certificates in York.

In this situation a real estate agent will need to arrange maintenance by a Gas Safe registered engineer, for all pipework, appliances and flues, which the landlord owns and provides for the tenants use.

Again, a copy of the safety check needs to be kept for two years, and a copy issued to the existing tenant within 28 days of the check being carried out and issue a copy to any new tenants before they move in.
