Landlords’ obligations in relation to gas, fire and electrical safety have not changed during the Coronavirus pandemic.
You should inform your landlord of any safety issues by phone, email or online as soon as you can.
If it is safe and reasonable for you, and in line with other Government guidance, you may be able to allow landlords or contractors access to your property in order to inspect or fix any urgent health and safety issues.
Annual gas safety checks remain an important legal requirement. Your landlord should rearrange any gas safety checks that are booked in over the next few weeks if they cannot go ahead safely.
Helpful guidance for both tenants and landlords about what they should do during the pandemic is available on the Gas Safe Register website.
