Landlords, do you know your gas safety obligations?

Landlords, of both public and private sector properties, have a commitment to maintaining the safety of gas appliances for their tenants. The affects of carbon monoxide poisoning, a potential result of ill-fitted or faulty gas equipment, has been well documented, causing sickness and in some cases, death. Beyond endangering tenants' lives, landlords are legally obliged to make sure gas appliances are serviced on an annual basis.

Raising standards in rented accommodation

New regulations announced this week will make it illegal for landlords to rent out the most energy inefficient homes. From April 2018, landlords will be required to install energy saving measures in properties which fall into the two worst energy efficiency ratings, Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) Bands “F” and “G”. From April 2016, landlords of privately rented homes will be required to accept reasonable requests from tenants for energy efficiency measures to be installed.
