Advice and Links for Tenants with Gas Safety Landlords Certificates in the Peterborough Area.

Gas safety for tenants:

Have you asked to see your landlord's gas safety certificate?

Being a tenant means there's always a landlord responsible for the gas appliances. But when was the last time you asked to see your landlord's gas safety certificate? If it hasn't been updated within the last year, you could be in danger of carbon monoxide poisoning. Illegal gas workers are renowned for conning landlords with unsafe gas work, resulting in serious illness and even death.

Gas safety for students

Students, be aware of your rights! Student accommodation can be great fun, but to avoid gas dangers that could kill you, ask to see your landlord's gas safety certificate. By law, your landlord must be able to show you their landlord's gas safety certificate to ensure the safety of you and your housemates. The great news is it won't cost you a penny and it could save your life!
 

Gas Safety Abroad

When you go away, whether staying in a B&B, villa, chalet, hotel, caravan or boat, you might be more vulnerable than in your own home. You don’t always know how often the gas appliances in your accommodation have been safety checked or serviced or if it’s been done by someone qualified.
Badly fitted and poorly maintained gas cookers, boilers and fires can cause gas leaks, explosions, fires, and carbon monoxide poisoning - which can kill.

Gas safety regulations vary across the world. Gas Safe Register recommends that anyone taking a trip away follows simple gas safety precautions.
