Trafford Magistrates court have fined an Accrington landlord £40,000 plus costs of £18,054 for failing to have gas appliances checked annually in his rental properties, the previous check having been carried out two years ago.

Tenants are now able to set up a free reminder to ensure that their landlord or managing agent does carry out this very important check, the website to use is www.staygassafe.co.uk

Martin & Co Uckfield automatically arrange the annual inspection as part of our fully managed service and in addition we also communicate to our landlords who manage their properties themselves to ensure that gas safety regulations are adhered to.
