A LETTINGS agency in Weston is reminding landlords that from the start of this month the official gas safety watchdog in the UK will change from CORGI to the Gas Safe Register.

Palmer Snell Lettings in the Boulevard, Weston, is warning landlords to make sure they use a fully qualified Gas Safe engineer.

Branch manager, Gavin Cox, said: "Landlords should check two things before employing a gas engineer.

"First, check to see if they are registered as a Gas Safe engineer and request their identification card when the engineer arrives on the premises.
