We are supporting the Gas Access Campaign for safer homes
We have joined forces with Home Group, together with Corgi Technical Services and the Association of Gas Safety Managers, to lobby the Government to change the law surrounding gas safety checks.
We, like other Registered Providers, are committed to carrying out checks on gas appliances and flues in our properties every year.
However the current legal process means that it can take Registered Providers up to four months to access a property if a tenant refuses access – putting themselves and neighbours at risk.
Unlike Registered Providers, the law gives Local Authorities the right to enter their homes using a warrant that they obtain from a Magistrates Court on the day they apply for access.
As it stands the current legal process means an estimated half a billion pounds of public money will be wasted over the next decade, due to the drawn out process of gaining legal access to properties.
