Can anyone please clarify whether I, as the landlady, or the letting agent would be held responsible if heaven forbid there should be an injury or fatality while the gas safety cert on my rental property is out of date?
I have just signed up to a full management contract with a letting agent and there’s been a mess up with the GSC. Over 7 days have gone by and still no certificate.
I asked for an email from them last Friday (8 days ago) to accept liability as it was their doing that no GSC is in place. At the time the full management contract was not signed. Instead I was sent a contract to e-sign which I duly did, thinking it would transfer the onus on to them if anything should go wrong before the certificate was renewed.
I have just had a conversation with someone which now makes me wonder if I would still held liable.
