Compliance & safety maintenance
Keeping your home safe is our priority
Our compliance team work to ensure our homes are safe and that we meet our obligations according to the law and housing regulations for landlords.
As your landlord, we have a legal responsibility to ensure that gas boilers, pipework, flues and other gas appliances owned by Loreburn are maintained in a safe condition. The law also applies to you in ensuring that you allow us access to your home to carry out the annual Gas Service Inspection.
To ensure we meet our obligations, we programme servicings every 10 months. This allows time for any replacement parts that might be needed and to work around your availability.
Help us keep you safe by allowing access to your home promptly.
On completion of the Gas Service, we’ll provide you with a copy of the relevant certificate within 28 days so you too have assurance that your gas appliances are safe to use.
We also have a responsibility to carry out basic safety checks to ensure electrical installations work safely. The law requires us to ensure the installations in our homes are safe when a tenant moves in.
You should never try to carry out your own electrical repairs, and always let us know if you suspect an electrical problem in your home.
During your tenancy we may also carry out a periodic electrical inspection. These are recommended to take place every 5 years to make sure there is no deterioration due to damage, wear and tear or other environmental factors such as overloading or corrosion.
Other safety inspections and servicing requirements exist for services such as:
- Fire alarms and emergency lighting systems
- Water hygiene and the prevention of legionella
