A landlord is responsible for the safety of his tenants. The legal duties apply to the range of accommodation occupied by the landlord under a lease. According to the Gas Safety Regulations 1998, landlords are responsible for ensuring the fittings, gas appliances, chimneys, and flues provided for tenants are safe.
A registered engineer must check the gas appliances and flues annually for gas safety. Landlords are free to arrange a Gas Safety Check between 10 and 12 months calendar at any time. Landlords are not responsible for performing safety checks on the gas appliances owned by the tenant. They are not responsible for the flues connected to the tenant’s gas appliances either.
