Gas safety - information for private landlords

As a landlord, you are legally obliged to carry out an annual gas safety check on all gas appliances in the properties you let, to make sure  they are safe and in good working order. You must also arrange for the maintenance of pipes, flues and all gas appliances. All checks and maintenance must be carried out by Gas Safe registered engineers.
