Why do I need a gas safety check / a boiler service every year?
As a landlord we have a responsibility to make sure your gas appliances are safe and we must check for gas safety within a 12-month period under Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. You will usually be contacted by letter around 2 months before the anniversary of your last check with your appointment date.
We will never ask for payment for a boiler service.
I’ve had a new boiler fitted recently
We still need to complete the annual gas safety check before the anniversary date even if you’ve had work done or new boiler fitted a few months before or any time within the 12-month period.
