Gas Safety Checks for Tenants

Every year Rykneld Homes carries out safety checks on all gas boilers fitted in its properties. Please make sure you allow our staff in to carry out the check – it could save someone’s life.
  • As a landlord, it is our responsibility to carry out gas safety checks on any Rykneld Homes gas appliances and the pipework in the homes we let. We will also service these appliances each year
  • We will contact you before the service is due to arrange the visit. It’s essential that you let us into your home to carry out these checks
  • You can also call us on 01246 217670 to rearrange a visit
  • All our engineers are Gas Safe registered and carry an ID card with their personal licence number and photograph
  • After the service, you’ll receive a certificate called a Landlord’s Gas Safety Record that confirms the results of the check
  • We are not responsible for tenants’ own appliances, including cookers
  • You should arrange for your appliances to be serviced by a Gas Safe-registered engineer
  • We do carry out visual safety inspections, as advised by the Gas Safe Register, which are recorded on the Landlord’s Gas Safety Certificate
  • We will let you know if any action needs to be taken, following the visual check.


The Silent Killer

Carbon Monoxide (CO) is potentially fatal and even low levels of the poison can cause lasting damage to your health. 

You can't see it, taste it, or smell it but CO can kill quickly without warning. Boilers, heaters, and cooking appliances that use fuel such as oil, gas and solid fuel have the potential to produce carbon monoxide if they are not installed correctly, are poorly maintained, or used incorrectly.

Because of the way CO effects the body you should always be aware of the following symptoms: headaches, dizziness, nausea, vomiting, drowsiness, and fatigue.

  • It is important that flues and chimneys are cleaned and that vents to the outside are not blocked or covered
  • It is important that appliances are maintained by an appropriately registered engineer
  • Any un-flued heating or cooking appliance (which is meant to work without a flue) should not be used in small, closed up rooms as adequate ventilation is required to ensure these appliances work correctly
  • Keep appliances and vents clean to ensure that there is enough airflow.
