Landlord don’t Get Fined for Breaching Gas Safety Regulations
11/18/2011 10:25:07 AM
Landlord don’t get fined for breaching Gas Safety Regulations because you could end up with a hefty fine for failing to fulfil your responsibilities as a landlord.
A fine of £3,000 has been imposed and a landlord ordered to over £2,000 in costs for breaching Gas Safety regulations and failing to fulfil their responsibilities to their tenant
A Huddersfield landlord their tenant at risk by ignoring repeated warnings to have the gas appliances in the property safety-checked, the Huddersfield landlord ignored several requests by the local council and the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) between May 2010 and March 2011 when requested to provide a Gas Safety certificate and also failed to respond when served with an Improvement Notice.
 
Dr Angus Robbins an HSE Inspector who investigated this specific case said “In addition to the risks of fires and explosions from faulty gas appliances, many people are made ill, and some 20 people die from carbon monoxide poisoning every year owing to poorly-maintained gas appliances.

Dr Angus Robbins went onto say
Landlord duties are very clear – they must ensure gas appliances are checked for safety by a Gas Safe registered engineer and provide their tenant with a copy showing that the appliances and flues were operating safely at that time. HSE will not hesitate to bring Landlord before the courts when they are prepared to risk their tenants’ safety for financial gain.”

Paul Johnston, chief executive of Gas Safe Register, said:

“It is important for
landlord to meet their responsibilities and for tenants to know their rights when it comes to gas safety. If there are gas appliances in a property they need to be maintained properly by a suitably qualified Gas Safe registered engineer and have an annual safety check. An up-to-date Gas Safety Record should always be available and tenant  should ask to see if it they do not have a copy.”

Landlords, Is your Cardiff Property fitted with a Carbon Monoxide Alarm?
11/3/2011 11:14:33 AM
WebLetz a Cardiff Letting Agent and provider of letting agent solutions such as £120 Cardiff Tenant Finder and 5% Cardiff Property Management is helping to cut the cost of bring Cardiff Landlords and Cardiff tenants together.
Research has shown that 1.8m people in Wales are at risk of carbon monoxide poisoning because they do not have an alarm. What is staggering about this data is that research shows 74% of people are unaware that carbon monoxide - which has no colour, taste or smell - can kill, and only 15% realise it can cause brain damage.
The Carbon Monoxide - Be Alarmed group say only 38% of Welsh homes and Cardiff property own a carbon monoxide alarm and  are lobbying the Welsh government to amend building regulations to ensure carbon monoxide alarms are installed in new homes. As well as new-build regulations, it wants landlords to be forced to provide alarms in properties as part of annual gas safety inspections and idea which WebLetz a responsible Cardiff Letting Agent fully endorse.
Members of the group will meet assembly ministers at the Senedd at an event hosted by Islwyn AM Gwyn Price.
Campaign spokeswoman, Christine McGourty, said: "There are two simple steps we'd like the Welsh Government to take.
"Firstly, building regulations should be amended so that new homes come with alarms already installed.
"Secondly, providing an alarm should be part of a landlord's annual gas safety inspection."
