Sadly we are seeing an increase in refusals for access for gas servicing checks within our properties from tenants. It’s really important during this challenging time that we keep people safe.
We have been directed by both the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the housing regulator to continue these essential checks – please ensure that you let these gas servicing professionals into your property.
These operatives will arrive wearing appropriate PPE and will ask you to follow some simple procedures to ensure that you and anyone in your property follow social distancing rules by keeping at least 2 metres from them at all times.
Failing to get your gas appliances regularly checked can put you and your family at serious risk.
It is important to note that if you don’t grant us access to service your gas or solid fuel appliance before the expiry date of your last landlord gas safety record, then we will continue to follow our access protocol which could lead to legal action being taken to gain entry and service your appliance.
Thanks for your co-operation in helping us to help you stay safe.
