Safety Test Spotlight – Landlord’s Gas Safety Annual Check

Last week we summarised the various safety and compliance tests that need to be undertaken periodically. Here’s a little more detail on each – this week starting with Gas Safety.

The Landlord’s Gas Safety Check is carried out on an annual basis. Each gas appliance within the property is checked by a Gas Registered Engineer. This will also cover checks on ventilation, flue and fixings. Installing a Carbon Monoxide (CO) monitor is a legal requirement by the HSE as well as UK Gas companies and distributors.
