Annual Gas Safety Checks

Part of our license condition is that for certain customers we can offer, free of charge, annual gas safety checks which will be carried out by a person who has appropriate expertise and will include checks on the safety of your gas appliances and any other gas fittings on your side of the Gas Meter. For each gas appliance this will include an examination of the effectiveness of any flue; the supply of combustion air; its operating pressure or heat input or, where necessary, both; and its operation so as to ensure its safe functioning.

The criteria for this check is that you are:-

  • Of Pensionable Age, disabled or chronically sick; and
  • Live alone; or
  • Live with others who are all of Pensionable Age, disabled, chronically sick or under 18 years old; or
  • Live with others, at least one of whom is under five years old;


Please note that you must:

  • not occupy premises where a landlord is responsible for arranging a gas safety check under regulations made under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974;
  • be in receipt of a means-tested benefit
  • not have had a gas safety check carried out at the premises in the last 12 months
