Gas Safety Certificate

Property Law

The Health & Safety Executive have just fined a landlord £2,000 for failing to provide a gas safety certificate in respect of a residential tenanted property.  This case highlights the importance of having the proper documentation in place if you are considering becoming a property investor.  The HSE have said that they “will not hesitate to prosecute landlords who fail in their duty of care to tenants in this way.”
