Annual safety inspections

Right of access for safety inspections

Once a year we must inspect certain appliances within your home to ensure that they are safe. You must allow our contractors access to your home for us to carry out these safety checks. Please do not ignore our requests to arrange these inspections. If you do ignore our requests to arrange access we will be forced to legally gain access into your home, and you will incur additional charges. Below are the annual safety checks we currently carry out:

  • Gas safety inspection
  • Solid fuel heating system inspection
  • Electrical safety inspection

Gas safety inspection

If your property has a gas supply you will be subject to an annual gas safety inspection.

Gas safety in your home is important to us and we must make sure that all gas appliances, flues and pipework within your home are safely maintained and checked once a year to make sure that the system is working efficiently and that your gas bill is kept to a minimum.

Please remember these key points for your annual gas safety inspection:

  • You must allow access if you have a gas supply pipe, gas central heating system or a gas fire provided by us in your property
  • We are legally obliged to conduct an annual gas safety inspection on all these appliances within 12 months of the previous safety check
  • DALEX are our approved contractors. They will contact you in advance of the due date of your next gas safety inspection to advise you when they intend to carry out the check. They will provide you with contact details if you wish to make alternative access arrangements

Solid fuel heating system inspection

If your property has a solid fuel heating system you will be subject to an annual safety inspection.

The safety of your solid fuel heating system is important to us and we must make sure that the heating system, chimney, flues, fire alarms and carbon monoxide detector are working within your home and are safely maintained and checked once a year to make sure that the system is working efficiently and to minimise your fuel bill.

Please remember these key points for your annual solid fuel heating system inspection:

  • You must allow access if you have a solid fuel heating system provided by us in your property
  • We are legally obliged to conduct an annual solid fuel heating system on all these appliances within 12 months of the previous safety check
  • DALEX are our approved contractors. They will contact you in advance of the due date of your next solid fuel heating system inspection to advise you when they intend to carry out the check. They will provide you with contact details if you wish to make alternative access arrangements
