January flew by and chances are you didn’t do half of the things you planned to do, but if there’s one thing you really shouldn’t forget is to book your gas safety check.

Aside from checking that all appliances are safe and installed properly, an annual check will help prevent any potential fatal problems such as carbon monoxide poisoning or explosions. If you are a home owner then you must organise your own gas safety check, but if you are a tenant then it is your landlord’s responsibility – it’s their legal duty. If you are a new tenant make sure that you are given the most up to date gas safety documents confirming when it was last done.

Below is a video from the Gas Safety Register which explains what you should expect as a tenant. If you are due a gas check, or would like to find out more about what it entails, then call us on 020 8682 2244.
