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, you may be able to allow local authorities, landlords or contractors access to your property in order to inspect or fix any urgent health and safety issues. Everyone should follow the social distancing guidance during any visit and also check any local restrictions that might apply in your area.
Annual gas safety checks remain an important legal requirement but they should be rearranged if they cannot go ahead safely because someone in your home is at high risk or self isolating. Further guidance for tenants and landlords is available on the Gas Safe Register website.
