The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998:
- All gas appliances, associated pipework and flues should be maintained by a Gas Engineer to ensure they are safe to use. An annual inspection by a qualified Gas Safe Registered Engineer is now a requirement of law.
- A Gas Safety Record (GSR) must be kept with the dates of inspection and any defects identified. This record must be provided to the tenant upon signing the tenancy agreement.
- A gas appliance with an open flue should not be installed in a bedroom.
- Where the gas meter is installed in a meter box, you should supply the tenant with a suitably labelled key to the box.
- After work on any gas appliance, a defined series of safety checks must be performed.
- Instructions for any gas appliance must be left for the tenant.
- Any gas appliance that is suspected or known to be faulty or incorrectly installed must not be used by anyone and should be removed, replaced or repaired immediately.
- Ventilation is needed for gas appliances to work correctly and safely. You should take care not to block vents and air bricks.
