Corona Virus Information
Landlords still have a legal duty to repair and maintain gas pipework, flues and appliances in a safe condition, to ensure an annual gas safety check on each appliance and flue, and to keep a record of each safety check. The latest restrictions on leaving the home currently allow registered gas engineers to undertake essential work, whilst taking the appropriate precautions advised to avoid spreading or contracting the virus in a new setting.
Please advise all tenants in these unprecedented and uncertain times these gas safety inspections will be carried out with all parties safety kept a priority at all times. We will contact the occupants before our visit and ask them to inform us if any persons at their address are self isolating with unwell symptoms of the virus; obviously we will advise if our engineer is unwell – in this scenario we will not be able to attend until a later date, and will keep a log of all correspondence.
All current advise & safety precautions as given by the government and relevant authorities including safe distancing, washing of hands, using new latex gloves upon entering the property etc will be adhered to by us at all times.
