Gas Safety Checks

As a landlord we have obligations under the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. These specifically deal with the installation, maintenance and use of gas appliances, fittings and flues, and place duties on us to ensure that gas appliances, fittings and flues provided for tenants’ use are safe.

We therefore need to ensure that an annual safety check is carried out on each gas appliance/flue, so each property should have a Gas Safety check every 12 months. Waltham Forest Housing Association uses Gas-safe engineers. For this process to work we require your co-operation to give our engineers access. So when you receive your notification letters please ring and make an appointment – IT IS FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY.
