We will maintain and check all gas heating and hot water appliances, gas installation pipework, flues and chimneys on which gas appliances are installed so that any risks are minimised. We will visually inspect tenant owned gas appliances to ensure they are safe. This is in accordance with the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
To comply with gas safety regulations, we aim to have a valid Landlords Gas Safety Record (LGSR) for 100% of our properties at any time in the year.
Stroud District Council’s Gas Safe registered engineers will carry out a safety check every year.
As a tenant, it is your responsibility to allow our engineer access to your home, clear access to appliances and gas meter, to keep appointments that are made for your annual gas service, or contact us to rearrange an appointment you cannot keep (please refer to your tenancy agreement for further information).
If you need to rearrange a gas servicing appointment, please contact us.
If you do not give us access, you are preventing us from carrying out our legal obligation contained within the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 and you are in breach of your tenancy agreement.
If you do not telephone to make an alternative appointment, we will cap your gas supply where possible, or commence with legal action to gain entry to your home. You will be liable for all associated costs.
