If you are a Landlord, it is imperative that you have an annual inspection of the gas supply and gas appliances if you have any at the let property. This must be carried out by a Registered Gas Engineer.
This is compulsory and it is the responsibility of the Landlord to arrange for these checks to be carried out.
Failure to comply with these regulations may lead to prosecution and/or imprisonment with fines up to £25,000.
An electrical safety check must be commissioned prior to the commencement of a tenancy, and must be carried out by a competent person (a Part P qualified electrician in kitchens and bathrooms) to ensure that the electricity supply, and all appliances, are legal. This includes supplying instruction books where needed for safe use.
Failure to comply with the Electrical Regulations may constitute a criminal offence which carries a maximum penalty on summary conviction of a £5,000 fine and/or six months imprisonment.
