A 21st Century Guide to LGSR

Faulty Gas and Heating systems pose a definitive health risk to residents. An average of 9,700 deaths per year are believed to be caused by living in a cold home, according to the NEA’s research. For the elderly or those with pre-existing health conditions, the risk is intensified. That is why regular Gas Safety checks are vital. The overall aim of the Housing Sector is ‘about keeping our customers safe and our organisations legal’, this requires regular gas safety checks along with consistent boiler maintenance to ensure the health and wellbeing of residents.

Current UK law dictates that Landlord Gas Safety Records (LGSRs) should be carried out at least once every twelve months in order to ensure that all gas appliances, flues and related pipework are meeting the outlined safety standards. One of the biggest frustrations facing Housing Associations is compliance. With the renewed scrutiny on gas safety and the Fitness for Human Habitation law, non-compliant properties could end up costing landlords thousands in legal fees, as well as risking resident health.

In accordance with the Paris Climate Agreement and current UK Net Zero policies, the Housing Sector is shifting away from Gas systems in favour of climate-neutral electrical solutions.  But this change isn’t instantaneous. Figures show that approximately 85% of homes across the UK are reliant on Gas heating systems, which means that Gas Safety remains a vital concern for Housing Providers across the country. With tightening budgets and strict compliance laws, Providers are looking for a way to streamline the efficiency of these procedures to ensure all homes are safe and secure.

But how can Housing Providers streamline existing Gas Safety procedures?
