Gas appliance safety

Whether you are a homeowner, landlord or tenant it is vital that you are aware of the potential risks associated with gas appliances.

Gas appliances can function without apparent problems for years but don’t be lured into a false sense of security, they must be serviced regularly to keep them safe and working at maximum efficiency.

If you are a landlord then you are legally required to have all gas appliances provided in your properties serviced annually by a Gas Safe registered engineer. You must also keep a record of safety checks and issue tenants with a copy of the current certificate.

By law, only Gas Safe registered engineers should carry out work on gas installations or appliances in your home. CORGI registration will not be valid. Engineers verified under the CORGI scheme will now need to register with GSR so they can continue to work legally.

All GSR engineers have an identity card carrying their licence number, a photo and the GSR logo. You can verify the licence number at www.gassaferegister.co.uk or by calling 0800 408 5500.
