Gas Safety Checks
The Association is required by law to carry out annual gas safety checks to all properties with gas central heating. You must allow access for this check to be carried out.
Please make sure that you allow access as unsafe gas appliances are a major danger to both you and your neighbours.
Due to the importance of these checks, failure to allow us access to carry out ta gas safety check will result ultimately in us forcing access to your property. All costs relating to forced access will be charged to the tenant.
You will be given plenty of notice by letter requesting access to carry out the annual check. If you receive a letter giving you an appointment that does not suit (for example, if you are working) please contact GasSure or the Association and we will change the appointment to a more appropriate time.
Coronavirus update to service
In accordance with recent guidance from the Health & Safety Executive, the Association will continue with annual gas servicing by heating engineers employed by our gas servicing and maintenance contractor GasSure adopting a safe method of working. However, if your household is affected by Covid-19 or you are self-isolating due to being in an ‘at risk’ group and you do not wish for a check to be carried out at this time, please let us know and we will carry out the gas check when your period of self-isolation is over. We may need to reschedule your appointment if we need to prioritise emergency work but if we do please be assured that all Glen Oaks Housing Association gas appliances in your home have been well-maintained and serviced regularly, so should continue to work normally.
