Landlords are now required by law to have an annual gas safety check to all rental properties. Under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998, this check needs to be carried out by a Gas Safe Registered engineer to cover all gas appliances, pipe work and flues which you own and have provided for tenants use.
The HSE (Health And Safety Executive) also strongly recommend the use of Carbon Monoxide alarms as an added precaution. These alarms should not be seen as a replacement for regular safety checks and maintenance by a Gas Safe registered engineer but used as an extra safety device for your tenants.
