In 1996 the government made it law that all landlords who rent part or all of a property, must have all gas appliances and gas pipe work checked. To prove the property is gas safe a certificate is issued by a competent registered gas installer and this will be valid for 12 months unless there is a change of tenant. The landlord is required to ensure these checks are done on an annual basis.
