Landlords - Gas Safety Checks

Landlords are required to have all gas appliances checked annually by a Gas Safety Engineer and a copy of the certificate should be handed to the tenant. Failure to do so could result in prosecution as one landlord found out.

Mr Rashid Hussain had failed to obtain a Gas Safety Certificate, despite numerous warnings and the Local Authority issuing an improvement notice. He was fined £10,000 and ordered to pay costs in the sum of £8,000. A lot of money when you take into account that it would have cost him less than £100 to get the checks done.
