Guide for rental providers - Gas and electricity safety checks

Residential rental providers have certain responsibilities for gas and electrical safety. 

Rental providers who enter into a new agreement on or after 29 March 2021, or have a fixed term agreement of more than five years which rolls over into a periodic tenancy on or after 29 March 2021, must undertake gas and electricity safety checks.


Gas safety check

The rental provider must ensure that a gas safety check of all gas installations and fittings on the premises is conducted every two years by a licensed or registered gasfitter who is endorsed to service Type A gas appliances. If requested, they must also provide the renter with the date of the most recent safety check in writing.


If a gas safety check has not been conducted within the last two years at the time the renter occupies the premises, the rental provider must arrange a gas safety check as soon as practicable.


What the gas check covers (from a technical perspective)

A gas safety check means:

a) the following gas installation checks -

  1. that LPG cylinders and associated gas components are installed correctly;
  2. that appliance gas isolation valves are installed where required by AS/NZS 5601.1 "Gas installations", as published or amended from time to time; 
  3. that gas appliances and their components are accessible for servicing and adjustment;
  4. that the gas installation is electrically safe;
  5. that clearances from appliances to combustible surfaces are in accordance with installation instructions and AS/NZS5601.1 "Gas installations", as published or amended from time to time;
  6. that there is adequate ventilation for appliances to operate safely;
  7. that gas appliances (including cookers) are adequately restrained from tipping over; 
  8. checking the condition of gas appliance flue systems, including chimneys
  9. checking gas appliances for evidence of certification; and

(b) testing gas installations for leakage; and

(c) servicing gas appliances as follows -

  1. a clean of all dust and debris from appliances including burner, pilot, fan, filters and air intakes;
  2. a check of the integrity of the heat exchanger;
  3. a check of the gas supply and appliance operating pressures;
  4. a check that the gas appliance burner ignition is reliable and complete;
  5. a check for any gas appliance flame abnormality;
  6. a check of the operation of the gas appliance, including safety devices;
  7. a combustion spillage test in accordance with Appendix F of AS4575 "Gas appliances— Servicing of Type A appliances", as published or amended from time to time, after service or repair of the heater.


Evidence of gas safety check

The gas fitter should provide a record of the gas safety check. The document must include:

  • the full name and business details, including the licence or registration number, of the gas fitter who did the check
  • the date the safety check was conducted
  • the results of the check, including any servicing and repairs required and actions taken to address the repair.


Record keeping

Your record of a gas safety check can be either of the following:

  • a compliance certificate (if applicable)
  • a document from the licensed gas fitter who carried out the safety check.

If you have further gas work carried out after the check, you must also keep the compliance certificate or tax invoice relating to that work.

You must keep the records, including details of the licensed gasfitter, until a record of the next safety check is created. 

A copy of the most recent gas safety check must be provided to the renter within seven days after the rental provider receives a written request from the renter. 


Electrical safety check

Rental providers must ensure that an electrical safety check of all electrical installations and fittings in the premises (in accordance with section 4 of AS/NZS 3019 "Electrical installations—Periodic verification") is conducted every two years by a licensed electrician that is employed by a Registered Electrical Contractor or a Registered Electrical Contractor. If requested, they must also provide the renter with the date of the most recent safety check, in writing. 


If an electrical safety check has not been conducted within the last two years at the time the renter occupies the premises, the residential rental provider must arrange an electrical safety check as soon as practicable. 


If the safety check shows that electrical repairs are needed to make the property safe, a rental provider should hire a Registered Electrical Contractor to do the repair work.


Evidence of electrical safety checks

The electrician should provide a record of the electrical safety check, which must include:

  • the full name and business details, including the licence or registration number, of the electrician who did the check
  • the date of the safety check
  • the results of the check, including any repairs that were required and actions taken to address the repair
  • confirmation that all installations and fittings have been checked and found safe


Record keeping

A record of an electrical safety check may be any of the following:

  • a compliance certificate
  • a document from the electrician 
  • an ‘’Electrical Installation audit report’

A record of the most recent electrical safety check must be kept until a record of the next safety check is created.

A copy of the most recent gas safety check must be provided to the renter within seven days after the rental provider receives a written request from the renter.
