Gas safety is paramount, and the law is very specific.  If you have ‘relevant premises’, you must:

Every year about 14 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning caused by gas appliances and flues which have not been properly installed or maintained. Many others also suffer ill health.

The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 specifically deal with the installation, maintenance and use of gas appliances, fittings and flues in domestic and certain commercial premises. They place duties on certain landlords to ensure that gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants’ use are safe.   

Make sure you keep your tenants safe and be sure that you’re complying with all the latest regulations.  Let us take the burden of responsibility.  Contact us to discuss your property portfolio and a suitable gas maintenance schedule
