Earlier this year we published a post about a landlord’s responsibilities regarding gas, electric and plumbing. One of the most important things that a landlord should do is ensure that yearly gas check has been conducted.
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 new tenant and haven’t been given the most recent gas check documents, or an existing tenant who hasn’t had a gas check in the last year then speak to your landlord.
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 020 868 22244.
