Residential landlords of Assured Shorthold Tenancies will be aware of the increasing amount of legislation that has been put in place over the years to ensure that the properties they rent are safe for occupation by tenants. One element, in particular, is that the tenant must be provided with the gas safety certificate in accordance with regulation 36 of the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998.
It is useful to have a reminder to ensure that you do not fall foul of the law, especially if you, as a landlord, need to serve a Section 21 Notice to bring the tenancy to an end.
