Landlords Gas Safety Certificate

Gas safety record is a record, also referred to as a certificate, that is required by law to be held for all rental accommodation in the UK where there are gas appliances present. The requirement is enshrined in the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. The law requires all gas appliances in a rented property to be checked annually, with a gas safety record being completed and a copy provided to tenants.

Gas safety records are completed by engineers who must be registered with the Gas Safe Register scheme which took over form the previous CORGI scheme in 2009.

What does a Landlord Gas Safety Inspection include?

  1. Check appliance for gas tightness.
  2. Check standing and working pressure if test points available.
  3. Check burner pressure / gas rate against manufacturers data plate.
  4. Check for satisfactory provision of all necessary ventilation.
  5. Test flue flow to ensure removal of products of combustion.

  7. Check for physical stability, presence and effectiveness of stability brackets (where appropriate).
  8. Investigate any evidence of unsafe operation and report to a responsible person. An appliance can not be deemed as having been checked, until the above has been completed.
