Gas and Electrical Certificates

As a landlord you are required by law to ensure to ensure that the electrical and gas installation appliances provided in a rented property are safe when tenants move in and maintained in a safe condition throughout its duration. A House in Multiple Occupation (HMO) is required to have a periodic inspection carried out on the property every five years.

Checks must be commissioned and carried out by a competent person to ensure all relevant appliances are legal.

As a Landlord, any failure to comply with the Electrical Regulations may constitute a criminal offence under the Consumer Protection Act 1987 that carries a maximum penalty on summary conviction of a £5000.00 fine and/or six months imprisonment.

Gas safety for landlords

As a landlord, there are three main areas you are responsible for:

 

  • All gas appliances, flues and pipework are in good working order

  • An annual gas safety check has been carried out by qualified gas safe registered engineer

  • Records must be kept for the last two years

Gas appliances should be check according to the manufactures instructions by a Gas Safe registered engineer when the certificate is renewed.

Electrical safety for landlords

Landlords are not obliged to have certificates for all your electrical fittings and appliances when it comes to electrical safety. However, the law states that all electrical appliances and fittings in a rented property must be safe and in good working order when a tenancy begins and need to be maintained to keep them that way.

All electrical appliance within the rented property are required to have the CE marking, which is the manufacturer’s claim that it meets all the requirements of European law. If an appliance doesn’t have this marking, replace it.

The final rule applies to Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO). An inspection must be carried out every five years by a registered electrician. The check is also called a ‘periodic inspection and testing’, you will be provided with an Electrical Condition Report (EICR).
