Information on gas and solid fuel safety checks can be found below:

Safety – joint responsibilities

We are responsible, by law, to carrying out a gas safety check once a year in all of our homes that have a gas supply.

As a tenant you have a legal obligation to allow access to our gas contractor PH Jones to undertake this work. PH Jones will contact you six to eight weeks before your gas or solid fuel appliance is due its annual gas service, they will then give you at least seven working days notice of an appointment. 

You must make sure that our air vents do not become blocked.

You are responsible for checking any smoke detector we have provided. For the safety of your family, you should test it once a week and contact us if it is not working.

Warning - check identity cards

Before you let anyone into your home to carry out a repair, inspection or gas service, you should check they are who they say they are. All of our staff, and any contractors doing work for us, must show you their identity card.

Remember – when in doubt, keep them out. 

Access to your property

As your landlord we have a legal responsibility to ensure that your gas appliances are safe to use. To achieve this we need access to your home each and every year.

A Gas Safe registered engineer will inspect and service the gas appliances in your home. At the same time we will check your smoke alarms and any carbon monoxide detectors.

Why do I have to give you access?
