Annual gas check

By law, we must inspect gas appliances in your home every year.

The gas safety check is a free appointment that could save the lives of you, your family and neighbours.

As a council tenant you have agreed to allow access each year for a gas service if your home has a gas heating system or gas fire. If you don't let us carry out the gas safety check, you will breach your Tenancy Agreement and we will take legal action.

If gas appliances are not working properly, you will be at risk of fire, explosion or carbon monoxide poisoning. ​

Carbon monoxide kills!   

You can't see it, taste it or smell it.  It can be given off by appliances which burn gas, oil, coal or wood that are faulty, or if the room is not properly ventilated or the chimney / flue is blocked.
