Carbon Monoxide Poisoning Claim & Gas Safety Checks
The Defective Premises Act 1972 states that a Landlord has an obligation to see that all persons who might reasonably be affected by defective premises are kept safe from personal injury or damage to property. This duty will cover most carbon monoxide poisoning claims arising from defective gas appliances.
What is a Gas Safety Check?
The Gas Safety (Installation and Use) Regulations 1998 make it clear that a Landlord must carry out an annual gas safety check and ensure that relevant gas fittings and flues are maintained in safe condition. Each appliance and flue must be checked for safety within 12 months of installation and then at the very least every 12 months.
