Stay Gas Safe
Together Housing is not responsible for gas servicing in homeowners' homes. As a homeowner, leaseholder or shared owner, you are responsible for the maintenance of all gas appliances including the boiler and flues in your property. You should have them checked for safety at least once every 12 months.
If you are a leaseholder who rents out your property, you are a landlord and this law applies to you.
Together Housing strongly recommends that you have your boiler and other gas appliances serviced once a year. This helps to keep you, your family and your neighbours safe. It could also reduce your energy costs as well as the cost of repairs.
You must use a Gas Safe Registered engineer to carry out safety checks and related work.
