The National Landlords Association (NLA) has announced that British Gas has joined its Recognised Supplier Scheme.

Having joined the initiative, the utilities provider will be on hand to ensure property professionals can meet various landlord legal requirements and are supplied with relevant services.

British Gas will also help landlords when one tenancy agreement ends and another begins.

A statement from the NLA says: "Void periods can be enough of a worry for landlords, but British Gas won't charge landlords standing charges when a property is empty. And they will even offer both landlord and tenant free energy efficiency advice."

Paul Berwick, head of marketing at the association, said that it is "great"to see a big firm like British Gas lend private landlords a hand. He also said landlords play a "key"role in the housing industry.

As of April 1st this year, all work undertaken on gas appliances in UK homes must be conducted by Gas Safe Register-accredited professionals.

The register took over from the Corgi gas scheme as the recognised standard for technicians in the country.
