Gas appliances- Landlord responsibilities for Victorian Landlords

Under the Residential Tenancies Act 1997, a landlord must ensure rented premises are maintained in good repair. Good repair includes all appliances provided by the landlord.

These appliances must be safe to use and properly maintained.


Landlords should ensure that:

  • Tenants are provided with a copy of the manufacturers' instructions
  • Only a licensed gas-fitter performs gas-fitting work
  • All appliances are safe for use before letting or re-letting a property
  • All appliances, pipe-work and flue systems are installed and maintained correctly
  • Pipes are correctly sealed if appliances are removed
  • All safety checks and details of work done on gas installations are recorded and certificates of compliance obtained when required.
