What does the UK's decision to change residential gas usage mean for me?

Question

I've heard that the UN Summit decided to completely rewrite the rulebook with regards to gas usage in the UK… what exactly does this mean for me as a landlord?

Answer

There are some major changes coming in the property landscape with regards to how we use gas in residential properties. The UN Climate Summit in Paris recently announced that all gas burning appliances in residential properties will be phased out over the next 15 years, so if your properties have gas boilers, cooking appliances or heating you will need to consider replacing these at some point.

It is likely that over the course of 15 years your appliances, unless brand new, would possibly need replacing anyway, and most manufacturers are simply stopping the production of gas appliances and boilers, so you would be able to source and fit an alternative very easily.

However, if your property has gas appliances it s important that you still follow all of the same procedures that you do at the moment. You still to have a registered gas engineer perform a gas safety check annually, and present your tenants with an up-to-date gas safety certificate.
