If you want to let your property / properties then you have an obligation to be compliant. This ensures that you and your tenants are protected. According to the Health and Safety Executive 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.
According to the Health and Safety Executive, with gas appliances you are required to:
Ensure gas fittings and flues are maintained in a safe condition. Gas appliances should be serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. If these are not available it is recommended that they are serviced annually unless advised otherwise by a Gas Safe registered engineer;
Ensure an annual safety check is carried out on each gas appliance/flue. Before any new lease starts, you must make sure that these checks have been carried out within one year before the start of the lease date, unless the appliances in the property have been installed for less than 12 months, in which case they should be checked within 12 months of their installation date;
Have all installation, maintenance and safety checks carried out by a Gas Safe registered engineer;
Keep a record of each safety check for at least two years;
Issue a copy of the latest safety check record to existing tenants within 28 days of the check being completed, or to any new tenant before they move in (in certain cases there is an option to display the record).
If you are non-compliant and do not maintain your gas equipment, then it may result in loss of life. You risk being prosecuted, which could lead to imprisonment or a fine of up to £20 000, or both, for each offence. If the case is then referred to the Crown Court the maximum penalty may be imprisonment, or an unlimited fine, or both.
Your qualified engineer will assess your property / properties and discuss with you how many smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors you need.
