As a landlord, you have a legal obligation to produce a valid gas safety inspection certificate to your tenants. As well as this responsibility, it’s also a good idea to ensure that you have an annual boiler service done – this will help your tenants to get the best from their heating while also potentially saving you money; if you don’t look after your boiler, it’s likely to need replacing much quicker than it would otherwise. Gas Safety Regulations put strict requirements on Landlords to ensure that the boiler and gas systems in rental properties are safe and well maintained on an annual basis. However, there is not the same level of requirement on Landlords to ensure that the electrics in a property are adequate and PAT testing is not a compulsory requirement unlike Gas Safety Inspections. The Landlord and Tenant Act 1985 provides that an electrical installation in a property is “Safe when a tenancy begins” and “Maintained in a safe condition throughout the tenancy”.
