If your property has a gas supply you will be subject to an annual gas safety inspection.
As your landlord we have a legal obligation to inspect all pipe work and gas appliances to ensure they are in a safe condition to reduce the risk of injury to members of your household or neighbours.
City Building will notify you with a date and time of your inspection, if you cannot keep the appointment, or can’t arrange for someone else to be there, it is important that you contact us.
Do not ignore your appointment, it is for your own safety.
Repeatedly failing to provide access to our gas engineers is a serious breach in your Tenancy Agreement which will lead to court action and possible forced entry.
If you smell natural gas in your home:
- Make sure all gas appliances and the burners on your hob are turned off
- put out any cigarettes
- open all windows and doors
- do not use matches
- do not use any electrical switches or appliances including door entry systems
