  • Landlord with NO Gas Safety Checks - Please help

    I have become aware of a private landlord who has in excess of 50 properties let out to private tenants and none of the houses have a gas safety check on them - nothing...

    Please can you advise me of what could happen to this person - the reason I ask is that a friend of mine has just started working for them and Im worried they will get into trouble if something happens - what advise can you offer me?

    Your help is greatly appreciated

      I can't believe that not one of the 50-odd tenants in any of these properties has not already done so.

      Troll?

              Hi,
              I have a one bed flat that is let out at the moment. I asked an electrician to change the fusebox to a consumer unit and asked him for a cost of changing my battery smoke alarm to a main conntected one.

              What he told me is that I need two alarms, one smoke alarm and one heat alarm...

              on a side note... I'd be a rich man if I had a quid for every time a builder has mentioned CO2 detectors.

              Agreed. My use of open flue was wrong. The theory of the legislation is that the annual inspection and the well controlled nature of the fuel should mean that a problem is detected before it becomes dangerous, but there is no inspection regime for solid fuel.

              Not to be pedantic but CO alarms are required in rooms where there is a solid-fuel appliance. So an open gas fire would not require one.

              Is this becoming 'a thing'?

              I have had a run in with a, well, I don't know what he was, to be honest! Not an electrician, not a surveyor.. his card said something like "Property Inspection and Surveys" - so had assumed he was a clerk with some of the other possible certs added...

              Sorry if this has been asked before, and sorry for posting rather than waiting to see what happens !

              I have just had my gas appliances serviced, and safety inspection carried out (for a landlords gas safety certificate - CP12).

              There was a fault which the engineer classified...

              Just for interest - I once had a (personal, not BTL) house where there was a smell of gas near the meter. Called the gas company, instructed (obviously) to turn the gas off at the meter - smell continued.

              Was told to leave the property IMMEDIATELY and they had someone there within 15 minutes....

              Don't 'think', do your own research. FB is a good place to start.

              Battery operated alarms are fine for a non-HMO unless Council Registration is poss required. Suggest LL replaces batt alarms every 3 years, as detectors deteriorate. Mains powered alarms should replaced every 10 years...
