In the United Kingdom, landlords or property owners must ensure compliance with the Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998. These regulations mandate landlords to carry out annual gas safety checks and get a gas safety certificate from the relevant authorities. These certificates must be provided for every installed gas appliance, including gas boilers.
