Faulty gas appliances and fittings, or blocked flues can cause the following gas safety risks:
- Gas leaks
- Carbon monoxide poisoning
A Gas Safe registered engineer will check these are in good working order and safe to use. After the gas safety check, the engineer will give you a record of the checks carried out. As a landlord you must give a copy to your tenant within 28 days. If you are a new tenant, you should get a copy of this before you move in.
You can find a gas certified business in your area on the Gas Safety Register website.
