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.

For further information on gas safety, you can visit the HSE or gas safe websites.

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.
