Gas and carbon monoxide safety in your home

Gas Safety Check

By law, we must check all gas appliances in our rented homes each year to make sure they’re safe.

Published: 06/02/2024

Your annual gas safety inspection 

Your annual gas safety inspection is essential in making sure your home is gas safe and to reduce the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. 

If your annual gas inspection is due, our contractors will contact you directly to arrange for this to be undertaken in the usual way. Your appointment will take around 40 minutes. 

What to do if you think your carbon monoxide alarm isn’t working 

We recommend that you test your smoke, heat and carbon monoxide alarms weekly by pressing the ‘test’ button.

If the alarm does not sound, please contact us so that we can repair or replace it.
